From 1975 to 1996, the station was owned by Gene Danzey, a former General Manager for WTMP in Tampa, who acquired the former WILZ in 1975 and retooled the station as WRXB, which was the region's first black owned station.
Danzey would later sell the station in 1996 to Rolyn Communications, Inc. A transfer was requested to Metropolitan Radio Group in 1996, but that transfer was not completed until 1999. In 2000, Gary Acker (owner of Metropolitan Radio Group) died, and control of the station passed to his estate, which was overseen by Mark Acker. In 2007, the station was sold to Polnet Communications, the current owner and licensee.
Past announcers at WRXB included Jim Murray, Rob Simone and Sister Dianne Hughes. WRXB also features Pastor Norma Miller hosting Pastor Glenn Miller's Praize Party. Other announcers include Ivan Summers and Tony King hosting TK's Midday Cafe.
