History[edit]

In February 2007, broadcaster George S. Flinn, Jr., applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station. The FCC granted this permit on June 29, 2007, with a scheduled expiration date of June 29, 2010.[5] The new station was assigned call sign "WICE" on September 3, 2007, then switched to "WWHF" on November 21, 2007.[1] After construction and testing were completed in June 2010, the station was assigned call sign "WXJB" by the FCC on June 29, 2010.[1] The station was granted its broadcast license on July 21, 2010.[6]
