History[edit]

In 1997, Salem Communications bought KEWS 94.9 of Arlington, Texas and made it into a Christian Talk format as KWRD-FM The Word 94.9. KWRD-FM moved to 100.7 on December 22, 2000 by trading places with sister station KLTY.

Scott Wilder and Lauren Lintner joined The Word in 1997 to do a talk show in the afternoon. Their program was replaced with The Janet Mefferd Christian Talk Program. Because of the almost instant success of Janet Mefferd's new Radio Program,Vice President - General Manager, John L. Peroyea, along with Greg Anderson, President of the Salem Radio Network arranged to syndicate the Janet Mefferd Christian Talk Program, which is now heard on over 120 radio stations across America including KWRD-FM, and continues to be broadcast from the Salem Communications Dallas-Ft.Worth operation.
