History[edit]

Most of KWRM's programming is in Mandarin Chinese. However, there are some English-language shows, especially sports events and talk shows. Some Spanish-language shows also are heard.

KWRM is the current flagship station of the Orange County Flyers of the Golden Baseball League. In the past, the station has carried the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes California League baseball and the baseball and basketball teams of Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach, and UC Irvine.

In the mid-2000s, KWRM was often referred to as "The Worm" covering high-school football programs that featured future NCAA and NFL stars, as well as collegiate and professional baseball. The Worm also carried the USC Trojans college football for several seasons. In the Summer of 2005, KWRM began producing several sport talk shows, including the show "Controversy." Controversy was hosted by then Assistant Sports Director Roman Valdez, along with Aaron Toller and Jaeson Zinke. All three doubled as play-by-play announcers on KWRM produced and broadcast games.

This station became time-brokered in the mid-1990s; before that, it played country music.
