History

The station went on the air November 30, 1995 as WKCD, with a smooth jazz format;[1] this was replaced with a modern adult contemporary format from 1999–2002 (under owners Back Bay Broadcasting and AAA Entertainment). [1] [2] The current format launched in 2002; initially using the WHJM call sign, it became WWRX in 2004 after 103.7 FM in Westerly, Rhode Island changed its call letters from WWRX-FM to WEEI-FM (it is now WVEI-FM). Under the direction of Brian Ram, who serves as Red Wolf's VP/Programming.

The station moved its city of license from Pawcatuck, Connecticut to Ledyard effective August 22, 2013. On December 24, 2013 WWRX changed its call letters to WSKP, swapping call letters with 1180 AM; the swap was reversed on April 23, 2014.
