The station is currently owned by Blakeney Communications. WXHB broadcasts on 96.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 25,000 watts.
WXHB is an affiliate of the Salem Radio Network. The station carries SRN News at the top of each hour during regular programming. Sunday mornings, WXHB airs the nationally syndicated program The Gospel Greats, hosted by Paul Heil. Monday nights, WXHB airs Gospel Grass, two hours of bluegrass music hosted by local broadcaster David McPhail.
On Sunday mornings, WXHB broadcasts a fifteen-minute inspirational message from the Ellisville Assembly of God Church, with Brother Morris.
On Sunday evenings, WXHB broadcasts an hour of inspirational religiously themed messages from Sanford Missionary Baptist Church, with Brother James Broome and then following Sanford, County Line Baptist Church with Brother Everette Broome.
