Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School filed the original application for what would become WJPN-LP on February 10, 2014[6] The school spent $250,000 on "permit costs, legal fees, to purchase equipment" for the new station[7][8] The majority of the money spent was to "purchasestadium lights for football field"[7] One of those very same lights became the "tower" for the station's antenna[7][8]

The station was issued the WJPN-LP callsign on May 29, 2015[4] Almost a year later, on May 20, 2016, the station began broadcasting for the first time[1] Five days later, on May 25, the Federal Communications Commission FCC granted the station a "License to Cover", allowing it to officially begin broadcasting[9]


Initially, WJPN-LP will simulcast the EWTN Catholic Radio Network while the school builds a studio for the station[7] Afterwards, the station will carry local programming and school sports broadcasts[7] The school's 2016-2017 curriculum will include a "communications course to teach 25 to 30 interested students about radio broadcasting"[7]
