The frequency at one point in the early 1980s was 103.1 FM. The move to 103.1 was challenged by WNEW at 102.7 and then WAPP 103.5 because of interference in their protected primary contour. This eventually led back to the station returning to 90.9 FM. While at 103.1, the on-air talent was most competitive to even commercial stations. WKRB now stands on 90.3 FM.
