WERW is operated by public-access television group Monroe Public Access Cable Television, Inc., and is located on the grounds of Monroe High School. The station actively works to promote local, non-profit organizations as a service to the community, and is Monroe's only locally located and programmed station. Many remote broadcasts are provided by the Broadcasting Club from Monroe County Community College for local non-profit groups and community events such as the Monroe County Fair and the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in Monroe.
WERW's musical playlist is a blend of CHR and adult contemporary oldies from roughly 1980 to 1995. In 2009 the station made more moves toward an AC-leaning classic hits music mix by adding more CHR and rock songs from the 1980-95 era to its playlist, while continuing to feature a gold-based soft AC rotation during overnight hours. The station also devotes part of its Sunday programming to country music hits from that time period.
The station broadcast on 97.5 MHz until 2014, when it relocated to 94.3 MHz. This was due to CBC Radio One outlet CBEW-FM in Windsor, Ontario, which also broadcasts on 97.5 FM, from a transmitter in McGregor, about 25 miles northeast of Monroe. WERW changed frequencies as it was licensed as a low-powered, Class D radio station, which made them ineligible for protection from interference from its previous location at 97.5. WERW broadcasts from the former student radio station tower at Monroe High School.
