WFWI began broadcasting in March 1993 with an adult contemporary format under the ownership of Russ Oasis and Steve Avellone, with Tony Coles as the first program director.
In early 1994, Oasis and Coles then changed the format to 1970s hits; shortly after, Coles left Fort Wayne for New York's WLTW and production director Keith Harris took over as WFWI's program director. Under Harris's tenure, the format was shifted to classic hits. On January 6, 1995, the Bob & Tom Show became the station's morning show.
On March 28, 2012 at Noon, 92.3 began simulcasting WOWO as "News/Talk WOWO AM 1190 and FM 92.3". The same day, the callsign was changed to WOWO-FM. The Fort continued online on TheFortRocks.com; however, the stream is no longer live (the site itself, while up for sale, is still running.)
On November 4, 2015, WOWO-FM changed their call letters back to WFWI. On December 14, WOWO began simulcasting on 107.5 W298BJ Fort Wayne; the simulcast would move to the frequency on January 1, 2016, as 92.3 began stunting with 2-minute clips of classic rock songs, with liners promoting to go to WePromiseSomethingBig.com, which had a timer counting down to Monday at 6AM, at which time 92.3 flipped to a classic hits/adult hits hybrid as "Big 92.3, Fort Wayne's Greatest Hits", playing hits from four decades (focusing on the late 1970s and early 1980s) and emphasizing that their stopsets won't last more than 2 minutes long.
