History

WGBF-FM first signed on in December 1971. In 1979, the station's call letters were changed to WHKC, and it was referred to on-air as "KC103." By 1984, WHKC broadcast a contemporary hit radio format.

The station returned to the WGBF-FM call letters in 1986 and switched to a rock format, which it still broadcasts today.

Under the ownership of the late Larry Aiken from 1987 to 1996, WGBF-FM was one of the first stations to broadcast the Bob & Tom Show outside of Indianapolis.
