In March 2007, the station inherited the Southern Gospel format on WMDR with the Contemporary Christian format moving to the AM WMDR.

In 2010 God's Country significantly expanded its signal, with a power upgrade and a transmitter move from Skowhegan, Maine to near Norway, Maine as well as signing on a full powered rebroadcaster, WWLN in Lincoln, Maine. With the power upgrade to WMDR-FM and the addition of WWLN, several broadcast translators that previously simulcasted WMDR-FM switched to a simulcast of WWWA. In 2012 more full power rebroadcasters went on the air including WRPB Benedicta and WRNM Ellsworth.
