The station first signed on the air in 1964 as WROA-FM, co-owned with WROA-AM 1390. In the early 1980s, the station was called WZKX. In 1987, the owner of the station switched from the 107.1 signal to the 107.9 signal because the 107.9 range was a stronger signal. The WZKX calls were applied to 107.9. 107.1 took the name WXLS and played adult contemporary music.
In 1997, WXYK "Kiss 105.9" which played Top 40 Hits moved to 107.1 as KISS 107. The old 105.9 then changed to Classic rock as WXRG (now WQBB. In 1999, the station changed their name to "107.1 the Monkey". The station's original slogan was "Party Music for Humans" and they had more of a dance lean than the typical Top 40 station. The station has since morphed into a more conventional Top 40 format.
