Timeline:

Originally partner with the Mutual Broadcasting System, the station went on air in 1964 as WTNB. The new owner, Madison Broadcasting, changed its call letters to WILD and frequency from 1490 to 850 AM during the 1950s. In 1957, the station again changed its call sign to WYDN with its sale to Bartell Broadcasters. WYDN changed its format to country music from Top 40 in 1965. The station did not have a competitor until 1976 when WVOK switched to country format. With WZZK’s change of format to country music, WYDE faced a severe challenge in 1977.

By 1982, WYDE dropped country and turned to be the first to air oldies from the 50s to 70s. During the 1980s and 1990s, the station experimented with various formats including news/talk and beautiful music to capture a significant number of listeners. In 1998, the station switched its call sign to WMKI and became an affiliate of Disney. Finally, in 1999, Crawford Broadcasting purchased WMKI and changed its format to talk radio with former call sign WYDE, changing it in WDJC in 2002 with airing Southern Gospel music format. The FCC assigned the current call letters WXJC in 2004.
