This WIRB is unrelated to the WIRB formerly licensed to Enterprise that broadcast at 600 kHz from 1948 to 1988. That station changed its call letters to WLHQ on May 11, 1988, before going off the air for good. It was deleted from the FCC database on May 13, 1992. This radio station is also unrelated to the television station in Melbourne, Florida, that used the WIRB callsign from May 1, 1992, until February 13, 1998, when it became WOPX.
The Ultimate Drive at 5 is a one-hour live show, hosted by Sir Travis and Kyle St. Andrews, that is aired each weekday afternoon. The Ultimate Drive was first aired on May 5, 2008.
