The station began broadcasting in the 1970s at 100.1 FM as WUUN, a live-assist Top 40/adult contemporary music station known as "Stereo 100." In 1985, the station moved to its current 103.3 frequency and became WRUP "U.P. 103", programming a CHR format. The station's slogan and calls meant "We're UP on the U.P.!" 1
WRUP changed in 1990 to the WFXD calls and a satellite-fed oldies format, which continued for almost a decade until the station went country. Originally the station used the on-air identifier "B103" under its country format, even though it never changed its calls from WFXD; it later identified as FOX 103, WFXD. In the summer of 2010, the station dropped all satellite-fed portions of its format and rebranded as "The Country Extreme." On Monday, January 30, 2012 the station launched a brand new and improved playlist. The playlist includes the biggest hits in country from the 80's, 90's, and today. Eric Scott (Eric Tasson) is the program director/music director for WFXD, and serves as the stations morning show host. The station is currently a currents-based station.
As of March 2013, the station has dropped the "Country Extreme" slogan and now goes by "103 FXD."
