History[edit]

The station signed on October 13, 1954 as WRPB, signifying Warner Robins, Perry and Byron. Other call letters included WAVC, WCOP and WNNG. The station covers local news and high school sports of Warner Robins and Houston County, Georgia. Georgia Eagle Broadcasting purchased the station in January 2007. The station is also known for its local news coverage and website, www.wrwr.com. Sister stations include WQXZ 103.9 FM, WRWR 107.5 FM, WDXQ 1440 AM and W244CL 96.7 FM, WCEH 610 AM, WNNG-FM 99.9 FM and WSSY 98.3 FM. The station is co-located with the co-owned television station, WMUB-LD, the first television station licensed to, and operated from studios in Warner Robins.

Prior to the current format, WRWR simulcasted WRWR-FM's news/talk format and had been WNNG, "Wing 1350", a satellite-fed adult standards station broadcasting ABC Radio's Timeless format (the station had used ABC's now-defunct "Unforgettable Favorites"/"Memories" network which was merged with "Timeless Classics" to create the current "Timeless Favorites", and before that, Westwood One's America's Best Music).

On February 19, 2015, WRWR changed its format from urban AC to black gospel, branded as "Praise 95.5" under new WYPZ calls.[3] The station changed its call sign on October 5, 2015 to the current WBML.
