On September 7, 2007, Radio-Wise, Inc. received a $4,000 fine from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for not keeping WNVA's public files in order. The Enforcement Bureau sent Radio-Wise, Inc. a notice regarding the proposed fine, along with a detailed complaint, on July 20 but got no reply from the station's owner. Now, the FCC is demanding the operator send a $4,000 check to the FCC's bank within 30 days.
On April 5, 2016 WNVA was granted a Federal Communications Commission construction permit to move to a new transmitter site. Instead of using a conventional steel vertical radiator used by most stations it would use an 85-foot whip antenna. The steel vertical radiator currently in use is 360 feet.
