History[edit]

The station went on the air as WIFB at 106.7 MHz on July 30, 1992. On April 1, 1993, the station changed to a local news-talk format as WJNN; on June 8, 2001, to alternative rock as WDOX; and on April 14, 2005, to CHR under the WSJQ call letters.[1]

On September 18, 2008, WSJQ began stunting, playing humorous clips from television shows such as South Park informing listeners that WSJQ was no more. Several days later, the station changed its call sign to WKOE, branding to "Coast Country 106.7", and format to country music. The station also began broadcast of the John Boy and Billy show. The station changed to an oldies format, adopting the WFNE call sign on April 1, 2010.

On December 29, 2011, the station moved to 106.3, and increased its transmitting power from 3,000 watts to 6,000 watts along with moving to a new tower five miles east-north east to Wildwood, New Jersey and seguing to a Classic Hits format as "Fun 106.3". This new power and location combination allow the 106.3 signal to be heard from Millville in Cumberland County in the west to Beach Haven in Ocean County to the north and Ocean City, Maryland to the south.[2]

On Friday, August 31, 2012, Fun 106.3 flipped its format to Alternative rock, under the "WJSE Rocks" branding.[3]

After a five-year stint with Alternative rock, WJSE reverted to Classic Hits as "106.3 The Shore" on Monday, April 17, 2017.[4]
