Prior to 1990, this station was adult contemporary/oldies. Then it was a classic rock station. It was also a country music radio station known as "Gator 105.5". For many years WDAR-FM played adult contemporary music as Sunny 105.5.
In a deal announced in February 1997, Root Communications Ltd. announced plans to buy eight radio stations owned by Florence-based Atlantic Broadcasting, including WDAR-FM. Qantum Communications Inc. purchased Florence's Root Communications Group LP stations in 2003.
The change to Contemporary Christian took place in September 2013.
