History[edit]

The station had its beginning in 1979, licensed to Springfield, Tennessee as WDBL-FM. According to FCC records, the station changed calls on November 4, 2002, to WJOI-FM and then changed calls again on March 13, 2004, to WEGI. Saga Communications assumed ownership and control of the station on July 3, 2003, from Tuned In Broadcasting, Inc.

Saga Communications, Inc. had the FCC change the city of license to Oak Grove, Kentucky.

On April 15, 2009, WEGI-FM "Eagle 94.3" began simulcasting on WEGI AM 1370, one of Sega Communications, Inc.'s AM properties. They broadcast a new top of the hour FCC ID check as "WEGI-AM 1370, FORT CAMPBELL ... WEGI-FM 94.3 OAK GROVE". At this time, the call sign on 94.3 FM was changed from WEGI to WEGI-FM so that AM 1370 could change their call sign from WJQI to WEGI.

On December 26, 2013, WEGI-FM shifted their format to variety hits, branded as "Rewind 94.3".[1] The station changed its call sign to WRND-FM on December 27, 2013, and then to the current WRND on March 5, 2018.
