The station was originally WDBO-FM, affiliated with WDBO AM 580 and CBS-affiliated WDBO-TV channel 6, at the time owned by The Outlet Company. In 1983, WDBO-FM and WDBO-AM were sold to Katz Broadcasting when Outlet decided to leave radio. WDBO-AM gradually moved to talk radio over the remainder of the 1980s, while WDBO-FM changed its call letters and re-formatted from middle-of-the-road to country music, becoming K92FM. There was some initial resistance to the shift; three broadcasters locked themselves in the studio on December 21, 1982, in protest. The situation was resolved peacefully within a few hours.[1]

WWKA is now owned by Cox Enterprises, the company that owns channel 6's competitor, ABC-affiliated WFTV channel 39, (virtual channel 9). The WDBO-FM callsigns returned to the radio in August 2011 when WDBO-AM moved to FM on the 96.5 MHz frequency, supplanting what was WHTQ, a rock station. In 2012, WWKA tweaked its branding, dropping the FM from its brand name.

WWKA also broadcasts in HD radio.
