History

The 101.7 frequency was added to the FCC's table of allotments in 1985. The station first signed on the air as WCWB in March 1987 from a tower site approximately 2 miles west of Trenton, Florida. It broadcast an automated country music format from a single wide mobile home next to the transmitting tower. In April 1994 the call letters were changed to WDJY.

In late 2000, the station ownership changed from Pinnacle AM Broadcasting, Inc to Pamal Broadcasting along with sister station WLUS. In February 2004, WLUS's call letters were changed back to its heritage call letters, WDVH and WDJY's were changed to WDVH-FM. This began the simulcast the Country Legends format from the WDVH studios on SE 27th street in Gainesville.

In October 2005, the studios were moved into the Sunshine Broadcasting building, located on 100 NW 76th street in Tower Hill Office Park, Gainesville.
