Station History

103.1fm signed on December 1, 1971.


In 1984, the format flipped to CHR.


On 94.5fm, this was a sister station to WGBF(AM).


WGBF-FM took its calls in April 1986. Owner Aiken Communications Corp. sold WGBF(AM) & WGBF-FM to Connoisseur Communications for $2.5 million. When the Connoisseur/Cumulus deal closed, Cumulus immediately spun off the station to Clear Channel to raise capital. Studios formerly located at 1133 Lincoln Avenue, Evansville, IN 47728-1054. Regent Communications, Inc. bought WKRI in January 2004. The deal completed an exchange of four Regent-owned Duluth, Minnesota radio stations and $2.7 million cash to Clear Channel for the five Evansville stations. Regent Communications, Inc. became Townsquare Media, Inc. in 2010.
