At one time this station was called WDAR. In the 60's and 70's it was known as "Top Gun Country WDAR" other formats have included beautiful music, classic rock (simulcast with WDAR-FM) and adult standards. Prior to the switch to WWRK, this station was WPFM and it was located at 1350 AM. In 1997, when it was owned by Root Communications, Ltd., WPFM applied to change its frequency to 1400 AM.
