History[edit]

Logo as WSTV-FM

The station was assigned the call sign WKED-FM on February 1, 1991;[2] it signed on April 15, 1991.[3] On April 1, 2008, the station changed its call sign to WSTV-FM[2] when Clear Channel sold their Frankfort stations to Forever Communications. The station relaunched on June 9, 2008 with a hot adult contemporary format.

On March 25, 2018, the station changed its call sign to WFRT-FM.[2] On March 28, 2019, WFRT-FM changed its format from adult contemporary to a simulcast of classic hits-formatted WKYW (1490 AM), branded as "Passport Radio".[4]
