WMEN was initially religious brokered station WLVJ before swapping call signs, format, and dial positions with adult standards WJNA 1230 AM in 2003. As 'Unforgettable' WJNA the station was home to prominent South Florida radio personalities including Chuck Zink, Greg Budell, Ron Hersey and Joyce Kaufman.

WJNA dropped the adult standards format on October 23, 2006, becoming ManTalk 640 WMEN with syndicated talk programming appealing to males age 25–54. WMEN debuted as 640 Sports on March 3, 2008, retaining the WMEN call letters. Previous network affiliations include NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Yahoo! Sports Radio, and Sporting News Radio.

WMEN, along with co-owned stations KBXD, WFLL, and WFTL, was purchased out of bankruptcy from James Crystal Enterprises by Mark Jorgenson's ACM JCE IV B LLC in a transaction that was consummated on August 6, 2015, at a purchase price of $5.5 million.

Effective April 27, 2017, Alpha Media purchased WMEN and WFTL for $2 million.

On July 3, 2017, WMEN rebranded as "640 The Hurricane".[4]

On September 27, 2018, Alpha Media agreed to sell their cluster at West Palm Beach to Hubbard Radio.[5] The sale, at a price of $88 million, was consummated on January 23, 2019.

On August 30, 2019, WMEN rebranded as "Fox Sports 640".[6]
