WCRF-FM began as WCRF on November 23, 1958 under the ownership of the Moody Bible Institute (MBI); WCRF was the first Moody radio station outside of Moody's home in Chicago, Illinois.[1] In 1981, the station adopted its current callsign. WCRF recently celebrated its 50 anniversary in 2008.[2]

In 1998, WCRF won the National Association of Broadcasters Marconi Award for Religious/Gospel Station of the Year.[3]
