1400 AM originally was WEOA (Evansville On the Air) then changed to WROZ, a country music-formatted station in the 1960s and 1970s. After WROZ left, 1400 became a simulcast of then WJPS-FM (now WLFW 93.5).
In 1997, a group of African American investors approached South Central about leasing the frequency for an Urban contemporary format. South Central agreed. For 10 years WEOA would be the only Urban station in the Evansville until August 2007 when CHR/Pop WDKS shifted to Urban.
On March 19, 2018 WEOA changed their format from urban adult contemporary to urban contemporary, branded as "98.5 WEOA".
