The 1340 frequency was previously known as WFAU; in 1994, its call letters and nostalgia format moved to 1280 AM, while 1340 became religious station WMDR. (The 1280 frequency became WJYE in 2014 and WHTP in 2020.) In May 1998, WMDR changed formats to a children's format, changing to Southern Gospel in late 2005, with the children's format moving to WMDR-FM. In March 2007, AM 1340 once again flipped formats with its FM counterpart, inheriting the Contemporary Christian format.
In 2009 the children's format was moved to an on demand section of their website  and 1340 changed to a Christian-based talk radio station.
