On January 25, 2008, it was announced that WAIL-FM is one of several Clear Channel radio stations to be sold, in order to remain under the ownership caps following the sale of Clear Channel to private investors. Until it is sold, WAIL-FM and other stations to be sold will be placed into the Aloha Stations Trust. (, )
WAIL used to be known as "99.5 The Whale." WAIL simulcasted with WFKZ and the two stations were formally known as "99.5/103.1 Sun FM."
