The first station on this frequency, WMCA-FM, went on the air on December 25, 1948, broadcasting until February 26, 1951, when it was sold to WHOM. WHOM-FM featured a variety of formats, including ethnic, background music, clasical, Spanish, and easy listening. WKTU (light pop format) ran from June 5, 1975 to July 29, 1978; WKTU (Disco format) 7/78-7/85; WXRK (Classic Rock format) 7/13/85 - 1/5/96; Alternative Rock format adopted 1/5/96, gradually moving to an Active Rock format.
Following the FCC approval of the merger of CBS Radio into Entercom Communications, WBMP, as "ALT 92.3", adopted an Alternative Rock format on November 17, 2017.
