The first song played on WMFS when the station debuted was "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by the Scorpions.
WMFS was Memphis' home to Howard Stern prior to his departure from terrestrial radio.

The original on-air line-up in 1995 consisted of Dave Robins in the mornings, Jim Fox middays, Zak in the afternoon drive, Leslie in the evenings, and Tony Vazlini (a.k.a. Vasolini, Mark Cantoni) on overnights. Greg Murray replaced Jim Fox during the middays and was also Production Manager.
On May 21, 2009 WMFS-FM changed its format to sports, simulcasting WMFS 680 AM.
Beginning in the 2011–12 station, WMFS became the flagship station for the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies.
