WJJO began broadcasting in Watertown, Wisconsin in 1961 at 104.7 MHz as WTTN-FM, moving to 94.1 in the early 1970s to allow WTKM in Hartford, Wisconsin to apply for a FM license to broadcast on 104.9. WTTN-FM and its AM sister station WTTN-AM at 1580 kHz, simulcasted programming from 1961 until 1982, when the FM started broadcasting in stereo and became WMLW ("Mellow 94") and broadcast a soft adult-contemporary music format. WMLW also broadcast Milwaukee Brewer baseball games in the 1980s. In 1989, with a change in ownership to Joyner Communications, the station adopted a Top 40 format as 94.1 WTFX "The Fox" and moved studios to Madison, Wisconsin and the transmitter location to Deerfield, Wisconsin where it remains today. Joyner later sold the station to the current owner, Mid-West Family broadcasting. In 1991, the call letters were changed to WJJO and a classic rock format was adopted. The station later switched to its current format of Active Rock.
WJJO carries an HD-2 subchannel also carrying an active rock format very similar to the HD-1 channel.
