Its studios are in West Palm Beach and its transmitter is located west of Lake Worth, Florida. The station has been a leader in the market for the past three decades.

Early in its history, the station was called Album Rock WMUM ("The Mother"). Additional former call letters were WQXT-FM and WWOS (Wonderful World of Stereo). The studios were located on Lake Worth Beach. The station was later sold to Richard Fairbanks and became WJNO-FM ("J-98") The station's call letters were changed to WRMF in January 1980, which are the initials of the owner at that time, Richard M. Fairbanks. WRMF is currently owned by Alpha Media, through licensee Alpha Media Licensee LLC.

WRMF plays a variety of today's hits by artists such as Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson and Ed Sheeran, along with songs from the 2000s and 1990s.

On September 27, 2018, Alpha Media has agreed to sell their cluster at West Palm Beach to Hubbard Radio.[2]
