WLZV 943 FM – branded K-Love – is a non-commercial contemporary Christian radio station licensed to serve Buckland, Virginia Owned and operated by the Educational Media Foundation, WLZV does not broadcast any local programming, functioning as the Northern Virginia network affiliate for K-Love; WLZV also services the southwestern portion of the Washington metropolitan area


WQRA signed on November 2, 1978 as a local station serving Warrenton, Virginia with middle-of-the-road music and local news coverage[2]

In 1996, the station was sold by Dettra Broadcasting to Bill Parris' Radio Broadcasting Communications, owner of WINX 1600 AM, Rockville, Maryland[3] Parris flipped the station in September 1996 to WINX-FM, a simulcast of WINX's oldies music[4]

The station became WTOP-FM in September 1997; it was the first FM outlet of all-news WTOP, which at the time was on 1500 AM[5] In February 1998, Bonneville International, the owner of WTOP, bought it from Parris Bonneville then traded this station and cash to Syd Abel for his higher-powered 1077 FM[6] The transaction was completed the next month, and Abel moved over his "rocking country" format, branded as WUPP "Up Country"[7] One year later, on April 28, 1999, Abel flipped the station to WPLC "The Pulse", playing hot adult contemporary crossed with alternative rock hits[8]

Mega Communications purchased the station in 2000 Mega first broadcast a format of Spanish love songs, renaming the station WPLC-FM as they added a simulcast with 1050 AM in Washington, which became WPLC[9] The following year, Mega changed the callsign to WBPS-FM and joined it with WBZS-FM 927 FM, Prince Frederick, Maryland in a Spanish adult contemporary simulcast branded as "La Nueva Mega" In 2005, the stations switched to Spanish oldies as "Mega Clasica"[10]

Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder bought the two stations, as well as Mega's WKDL 730 AM, Alexandria, Virginia, in 2006 The new three-station network ran a new simulcast as "Triple X ESPN Radio", creating an ESPN Radio-based sports talk competitor to WTEM 980 AM 943 changed to WWXX to reflect the branding[11] In 2008, Snyder bought WTEM itself, and the network became simply "ESPN 980" with no other changes to the two FM stations[12]

Snyder began selling off his radio properties during 2017; Educational Media Foundation bought 943 FM and flipped it to WLZV with their national K-Love contemporary Christian music programming[13]
