Combined 89.5/90.5 History[edit]

Old WPER Logo used from 1999 to 2006

In January 2006, Positive Alternative Radio bought the old CSN-Virginia, a network of four full-power stations and almost two dozen translators, formerly broadcasting programming from local Calvary Chapel churches alongside KAWZ's Calvary Satellite Network. In the buyout, these stations were split between WPER and WRXT in Lynchburg. WPER obtained WJYJ, based out of Fredericksburg, and seven of the translators, increasing its range of its new network all the way down to Richmond, Williamsburg, and even Buckingham County. Accordingly, WPER changed all promotional materials from "Positive Hits 89.9 WPER" to "Positive Hits 89.9 and the NEW 90.5."

Translators[edit]

WPER is relayed by four translators to widen its broadcast area. Co-owned WJYJ relays the same programming on six additional signals.
