A company organized as United States CP, LLC, applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for this station's original construction permit on October 19, 2009. The FCC granted the permit on December 15, 2009, with a scheduled expiration date of December 15, 2012. The station was assigned the call sign "WKHF" by the FCC on October 29, 2010.
With construction completed and testing set to commence, the station applied for its license to cover on March 2, 2011. As of March 4, 2011[update], this application was accepted for filing by the FCC and is awaiting further action by the commission. After several days of equipment testing and broadcasting under program test authority, the station began regular broadcasting as "93-7 KHF" at 7 p.m. on March 25, 2011.
WKHF is currently being operated under a local marketing agreement by Radiowerks Broadcasting of Central Virginia, which is also working on a deal to purchase the station.
