On September 30, 2007, WPRZ signed off having been sold to Metro Radio, Inc. on August 15, 2007 for $1.1 Million, according to DCRTV.com. On October 12, 2007, WPRZ became WKDL with a Spanish format. The Christian format of WPRZ continues to broadcast at WPRZ.org.
The station broadcast a Spanish talk format until May 21, 2008 when the station switched to Classic Country. In Mid-November, the country format was abruptly dropped for brokered programming.
From January 31, 2011 until February 2012, WKDL simulcast WTNT (730 AM) in Alexandria on a full-time basis. Its programming lineup consisted mostly of Talk Radio Network offerings, particularly America's Morning News, The Laura Ingraham Show, America's Radio News Network, The Jerry Doyle Show, The Savage Nation, The Rusty Humphries Show and The Phil Hendrie Show.
WKDL was sold to Salem Communications in February 2012 for $10,000 . This purchase was mainly so Salem could increase the daytime power of WWRC to 10,000 watts daytime; WKDL would have its daytime power lowered from 5,000 watts to 3,000 watts, and aimed away from the Washington D.C. metro. WRCW is a full-time relay of sister station WWRC in Washington, D.C., which operates on the first-adjacent 1260 kHz frequency.
On July 23, 2014, the station changed its callsign from WKDL to WRCW.
