WTRI was owned by the Lyndon LaRouche organization based in nearby Leesburg, Virginia from 1986 to 1991. The LaRouche organization sold the failing station and it switched to a local music format in 1992.
On October 1, 2007, WTRI flipped to brokered Spanish language programming. The station's former "Vegas Radio" standards format was abandoned at that time.
As of March 3, 2009, WTRI was effectively silent, though no silent transmission application was filed with the FCC.
On April 8, 2009, WTRI began carrying a Classic Country format under the branding "Radio Earl".
In January 2010, the "Radio Earl" Format was abandoned in favor of leasing the station's signal to nearby WTHU, a Christian based talk radio AM station.
In September 2010, the station ceased operations totally, and as of October, 2010, broadcasts no signal of any kind.
In January 2011, WTRI began broadcasting Spanish language music as "Radio La Grande 1520".
As of September 2011, the station had once again gone silent.
In May 2012, WTRI began relaying the Asian-centered programming from "Radio Asia" based in New Jersey.
As of the 3rd of March 2013, the station was once again silent.
In May of 2014, after repeated fines for going silent without permission, the station fell into receivership by order of the Federal Communication Commission.
