History

American Family Association launched the station as WAUQ in 2000,[1] relaying its American Family Radio network which featured a mix of Christian teaching and Contemporary Christian music[5][6]

On August 18, 2015, Educational Media Foundation purchased the station from the American Family Association for $125 million[7][8][9] EMF began relaying its K-Love network on the station, and changed the station's call letters to WLRJ[2]

On April 17, 2017, WLRJ began stunting with a continuously-repeating informational loop informing listeners that K-Love in Richmond had moved, and directing listeners to EMF's recently acquired stations on 989 FM WLFV and 1003 FM WKYV[10]

On April 26, 2017, WLRJ began relaying EMF's Radio Nueva Vida network[11] The station changed its call sign to WNVU on December 22, 2017

On October 11, 2019, EMF filed with the Federal Communications Commission an application to sell WNVU to the Virginia Tech Foundation, operator of Roanoke NPR member stations WVTF and WVTF Music, for $215 million[12] The sale closed on December 27, 2019, and the station began simulcasting Radio IQ programming on January 15, 2020 That same day, the call sign WRIQ was moved from a co-owned Radio IQ station in Lexington, Virginia, which became WIQR
