History [ edit ]
Green Bay Press-Gazette built the station - a daytimer - in 1947 under the call-letters WJPG. Its original frequency was 810 kHz. This was changed to 1440 kHz not long after and nighttime service was added. Daytime power was increased to 5,000 watts, as well. The call letters changed to WNFL during the Green Bay Packers' championship runs in the late 1960s. WNFL changed ownership several times until 1996, when Midwest Communications acquired the station, along with sister stations WNCY and WYDR (then WROE).
