WDRC is the flagship station of a cluster of four Connecticut stations running a talk format with the slogan "The Talk of Connecticut" (the other stations are WSNG in Torrington, WWCO in Waterbury and WMMW in Meriden). The leading personalities for the "Talk of Connecticut" are morning host Brad Davis and afternoon host Dan Lovallo. Both offer a conservative viewpoint. Davis has been linked to former Governor John G. Rowland and Senator Joe Lieberman.
WDRC was the first commercial AM station in the state of Connecticut, originally operating from New Haven.
On March 5, 2014, Buckley Broadcasting announced that it would sell its Connecticut radio stations, including WDRC, to Connoisseur Media. Buckley had owned an interest in the station since 1957, assuming full control in 1959. The sale was consummated on July 7, 2014, at a price of $7,922,035.
