Several formats over the years included middle of the road,country music with farm news and later southern gospel. WKFI also had an FM beginning in 1969 as WKIT at 102.3 mHz operating at first as a simulcast then briefly adopting the WKFI calls until the early 1970s when the callsign changed to WDHK with an adult contemporary format. That format remained throughout the 70s and 80s when the callsign was once again switched to WSWO-FM in 1982 and switched to new country in 1997. It became classic country in 2003 as a brief AM/FM simulcast of WBZI until WSWO-FM was sold to EMF Broadcasting becoming WKLN...the southwest Ohio repeater of K-LOVE.
WKFI-AM retains the simulcast of WBZI to this day.
