WKHC started in 1989 as soft adult contemporary "The Wind 97.1", WYND-FM. In 2000, the station became Country WNHW. In 2003, Soft AC WYND-FM returned to 97.1. In 2006, Convergent Broadcasting LLC sold WYND-FM, WFMZ, WVOD and WZPR to CapSan Media LLC. On October 31, 2006 at Noon, WYND-FM and WZPR both dropped Soft AC for Country later branded as "Wilbur 92.3 & Orville 97.1".
In late 2002, Convergent had purchased these two stations from OBX Broadcasting. In April 2006, CapSan Media announced it had signed an Asset Purchase Agreement to purchase WZPR/WYND-FM along with sister stations WVOD and WFMZ from Convergent Broadcasting, LLC. On July 6 2006, CapSan Media completed the purchase of all four stations.
On March 13, 2008, Capsan Media ended its Country simulcast and flipped the 92.3 frequency to sports as "ESPN 92.3." and WYND-FM became Your Country 97.1.
