WQRP is a radio station owned by Educational Media Foundation. The station broadcasts Christian Contemporary music. It shares time with Dayton Public Schools-operated WDPS during school hours within the curricular school year.
As Praise 89.5, it broadcast praise and worship music and has a 35-year history in Dayton, formerly owned by WQRP Family Broadcasting Incorporated.
WQRP began in the early 1980s as a simulcast of the former WCXL (now WDPR ) when it was owned by Dayton Broadcast Workshop Inc. and operated out of a former church on West Third Street in the Drexel neighborhood of West Dayton. Originally WQRP operated at 88.1 with WCXL at 89.5. This continued before WCXL was sold and became WDPR, hence the frequencies swapped to their current FM dial positions. Once a southern gospel music format with local ministers airing preaching and teaching programs in the beginning, WQRP switched to contemporary Christian music. After its sale to Educational Media Foundation, WQRP operated as a part of the K-LOVE radio network until November 2012, when it became an affiliate of Radio Nueva Vida.
