The station began as WRKN in the late 1960s as a country station. Longtime owners were Roy and June Harris. For a short time the station had a 1950s based oldies format and also had a country gospel format for while. In later years it simulcast its sister station WRJH 97.7 FM with a Southern Gospel format. After WRJH was sold, WRKN AM continued to operate with a Southern Gospel format. After the retirement of the owner the station emerged as an affiliate of the "Real Country" network with classic country with call letters WZQK.
On December 26, 2010, WJFN returned to classic country.
WJFN also operates a 99 watt low power translator at 99.1 FM, W256BL in Jackson that is licensed to Ridgeland, Mississippi.
On April 5, 2012, WJFN changed their call letters to WFQY and on April 20, 2012, WFQY changed their format to classic hip hop, branded as "BDay 99.1".
