Sale of the station from Salem Broadcasting to Parris was announced on December 15, 2010. During its ownership of the station, Salem Broadcasting reduced WAMD's daytime power from 500 watts to 300 watts and reduced its broadcast coverage to enable then-co-owned WNYM in the New York City area to increase its daytime power from 5 kW to 50 kW. WNYM also broadcasts on 970 AM. WAMD's nighttime power remains at 500 watts.
WAMD returned to the airways April 23, 2011 under the management of Bill Parris. WAMD is broadcasting the KHZ network in simulcast with WYRE and WKHZ.
