WOLD-FM signed on in 1968 as a sister station to WOLD 1330 AM The AM station is now licensed as WSNQ and owned by Praise and Glory Ministries based in Knoxville, Tennessee
In November 2007, longtime license holder Emerald Sound, Inc, reached an agreement with TECO Broadcasting, Inc, to transfer the broadcast license for WOLD-FM plus all of the station's assets for a published sale price of $400,000 In addition, TECO Broadcasting agreed to pay Emerald Sound owners Robert S Dix and Patricia A Dix $100,000 as "non-compete" compensation TECO Broadcasting is wholly owned by Tom Copenhaver, licensee for WZVA The deal was accepted for filing by the FCC on January 30, 2008, approved on April 10, 2008, and the transaction consummated on May 1, 2008
In September 2010, the station's format shifted from pure classic rock to classic rock plus some country music, branded as "The Renegade, rock with a twang"
In 2016, the station and then-sister station WZVA were purchased by CDM Broadcasting, Inc However, effective January 31, 2018, both stations were sold back to TECO Broadcasting in exchange for releasing CDM Broadcasting from the $651,039 promissory note related to the 2016 purchase
In popular culture
For his 1973 album Short Stories, singer Harry Chapin wrote a song about an aging disc jockey who begins and ends his career at fictional FM radio station "WOLD" after stops as a late night talk show host at an unnamed station in Tulsa, Oklahoma and another stop at another unnamed station in Boise, Idaho The fictional WOLD may not be located in Boise because the call letters of most US stations west of the Mississippi begin with "K" rather than "W" Radio Station WBAP Fort Worth, WHO Des Moines, WOAI San Antonio, and other broadcasters licensed before the FCC rule change in 1923 kept their original call letters The song, "WOLD", would prove more popular with disc jockeys who could identify with the song than the general public, although it did reach #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became an international hit in March 1974, almost exactly six years after the real WOLD-FM signed on in Virginia
