The station's original call sign was WSBP, broadcasting a country format for most of its early history.
The construction permit to build the station was first issued on January 22, 1962. It first signed on November 1, 1963 at 1,000 watts of daytime-only power and under the ownership of Chattahoochee Broadcasting Inc. Emory Pope was the company president.
WSBP was sold to another company, calling itself "Radio Station WSBP" on May 1, 1968. Roscoe Fleetwood served as company president and general manager.
On November 11, 1975, the station changed hands again, this time to Soundway Broadcasting Company, headed by president and general manager Erwin O'Connor. Prior to the sale that year, the FCC approved the station's request to increase the station's daytime power to five thousand watts. The change became effective January 22, 1979.
The call sign changed to WENO on 1980-01-29. on 1988-05-12, the station changed its call sign to the current WTCL.
WTCL went silent on December 24, 2013 after the collapse of an LMA to a prospective new owner. It has remained silent since then as its current owner seeks a buyer or another LMA offer.
On February 23, 2016 WTCL returned to the air with an 1980s hits format, branded as "Sunny Radio".
