On December 22, 2016, Salem announced that it would hand operation of its Louisville radio stations, including WFIA, to Word Broadcasting Network (also known as Word Media Group) under a time brokerage agreement.[1] Programming of WFIA was changed to a simulcast of Word's Contemporary Christian station WJIE-FM,[2] and the station carried the WJIE call letters for 10 months in 2017 before reverting to WFIA in October.[3] On February 10, 2020, Word Broadcasting announced that it would take advantage of the option in its agreement to acquire the stations from Salem for $4 million.[4][5]
