WONA is a broadcast radio station licensed to Richmond, Virginia, serving Metro Richmond. WONA is owned and operated by the Delmarva Educational Association.[1]

History[edit]

On November 9, 2015, the then-WREJ went silent (off the air). Its previous black gospel format moved to sister station WLEE 990 AM, replacing news/talk.

On February 4, 2016, WREJ swapped call signs with its sister station, assuming the WLEE call sign. The station changed its call sign to WONA on March 15, 2016.

Effective June 28, 2016, Davidson Media Group donated WONA to the Delmarva Educational Association.
