In mid-December, 2012 WBPC-AM came back on the air broadcasting under an agreement with The Talk Radio, LLC, headed by longtime Latino community figure Teodoro Maus. During full-power (2,500 watts) daytime operation, the station is in Spanish with a talk radio format; and at night it once again featured Reggie Gay's Gospel Music service.
As of July 2012, The station programming was restructured; with a news-heavy morning drive time show until 10am, followed by the two-hour call-in show GLAHR Informa (The GLAHR Report); then hour long call in shows; three hours of news and commentary programming simulcast with a Mexican network; with a drive-time talk and music show, "De todo un poco,"—literally "a little of everything"—closing out the Spanish-language programming.
The station has a heavy emphasis on issues affecting the Latino immigrant community.
In July 2011 HANMI BROADCASTING, INC. had requested a Silent STA for WPBC-A/DECATUR, GA after an LMA ended abruptly.
WPBC's transmitting tower is located in the middle of a MARTA employee parking lot at the Avondale train station. In 2002, MARTA conducted a study to renovate the entire College Station area known as: Decatur - "Avondale MARTA Station Study Livable Centers Initiative", including the station's parking lot. In 2007, another study was conducted, but there have been no further announcements found online to date. Since 2007, no renovation of the area has begun, and no new announcements have been made by either MARTA or Dekalb county regarding this initiative.  Should this plan come to fruition, at some point, this may affect the tower/transmitter site which would then have to seek permission to be relocated in accordance with FCC rules and regulations.
WPBC's programming consisted of a progressive talk format during the week and mostly jazz on the weekends as of 6 August 2010[update]. The progressive talk format moved to Green 1640 AM in Decatur, GA in April 2011 upon the WPBC's LMA with Reggie Gay's WZBN that brought about the format change to Contemporary Gospel/Holy Hip Hop.
Prior to April 2011, weekend programming on WPBC was derived from Broadcast Architecture's Smooth Jazz Network.
In the 1950s the call letters WPBC belonged to an AM station located in the Minneapolis market at 1000 on the dial. It had a catchy jingle "W-P-B-C, W-P-B-C, The People's Broadcasting Company."
