In November 1982, control of Vogel-Ellington Corporation, the station's licensee at the time, was transferred from William R. Vogel to William R. Vogel Jr. The transfer was approved by the FCC on December 17, 1982, and the transaction was consummated on March 2, 1983.[4] In May 1988, Vogel-Ellington Corporation reached an agreement to sell this station to Radio Station WHOD Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on June 14, 1988, and the transaction was consummated on July 1, 1988.[5]

In February 1994, Radio Station WHOD Inc. (Bennie E. Hewett, president) reached an agreement to sell this station to Capital Assets, Inc. The deal was approved by the FCC on March 7, 1994, and the transaction was consummated on April 25, 1994.[6]

The station was assigned the WHOD call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on December 31, 2004.[2]
