The WCBG calls were on AM 1590 until January 1, 2005. VerStandig Broadcasting "donated" the station to Emmanuel Baptist Temple after a very public battle of the station's tower, which was in Chambersburg city limits. On January 1st, WCBG switched calls with then sister WHGT and moved all programming to AM 1380 and AM 1590 fell silent. AM 1590 would remain silent until December 4, 2005.
AM 1380 spent years as country formatted WAYZ, later gaining an FM station at 101.5 (today WAYZ resides at FM 104.7). WAYZ changed calls in 1992 to WHGT pending a format change that never happened. When country WAYZ moved to FM 104.7 in 2000, AM 1380 changed to simulcasting then classic hits "Star 92.1" WSRT. In 2006 when FM 92.1 changed format to CHR as "The Point", sister AM WCBG was sold and the calls and talk format moved to AM 1380.
