Programming and corporate history
On April 23, 2010, WDYL began redirecting listeners to WMXB, which flipped to adult album alternative "103.7 The River" the previous day. This led to rumors of a possible format change. Six days later, on April 29, at 2 p.m., after playing "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" by Green Day, WDYL flipped to Rhythmic Top 40, branded as "Hot 100.9." The first song on "Hot" was "Rude Boy" by Rihanna. On May 6, WDYL changed call letters to WHTI to match the "Hot" branding.
On May 7, 2014, WHTI began redirecting listeners to new translator W291CL, which began simulcasting WHTI via WURV-HD2. After a 15-day simulcasting period, "Hot" officially moved to W291CL on May 22, and 100.9 FM began stunting with nature sounds. At 8 a.m. on May 23, 2014, WHTI flipped to Soft AC, branded as "Easy 100.9." The first song on "Easy" was "Easy" by The Commodores.
On January 27, 2016, WHTI flipped to Classic Hits, branded as "Star 100.9." Bill Bevins and Sherry Perkins continue to host the morning show. The station's call letters changed WJSR on February 9, 2016.
