History

In February 2007, broadcaster George S. Flinn, Jr., applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station. The FCC granted this permit on June 29, 2007, with a scheduled expiration date of June 29, 2010.[5] The new station was assigned call sign WICE on September 3, 2007, then switched to WWHF on November 21, 2007.[1] After construction and testing were completed in June 2010, the station was assigned call sign WXJB by the FCC on June 29, 2010.[1] The station was granted its broadcast license on July 21, 2010.[6] In 2015, the station received approval from the FCC to increase its effective radiated power to 25,000 watts.[7]
