This station originated with a construction permit issued to Bremer Broadcasting Corp. to operate on the old FM band at a frequency of 49.5 in January, 1942. Bremer, however, did not put the station, WAAW, on the air until June 23, 1947, broadcasting on 101.9. The station became WAAT-FM later in 1947 and moved to 94.7 in 1948. It was sold to National Telefilm Associates in 1958, and the call letters were changed to WNTA-FM. Bergen Broadcasting purchased the station in 1961 and adopted the call letters WJRZ-FM in 1962. In 1966, the station was purchased by evangelist Harold Camping`s Family Stations, and the call letters WFME were adopted.
On October 16, 2012, Cumulus Media announced that it was purchasing WFME from Family Stations. The sale was completed on January 9, 2013, and Family Radio`s programming was discontinued on January 11, 2013. Pending the introduction of a new format, Cumulus began a simulcast of WPLJ using the call letters WRXP, which were legally adopted on January 14, 2013. A country music format debuted on January 21, 2013, and the call letters were again changed, to WNSH, on January 29, 2013.
