WGFP serves Southern Worcester County, Northern Rhode Island and Northeastern Connecticut. WGFP also provides the area with local high school sports (Football and Basketball) live with Matt Morway and Pete Geanis.

For several years now[when?] WGFP has been operating from a long wire antenna instead of a tower.[3] On the site of the tower rests an experimental tower WX1CFA using a "crossed field" design.[4]

On December 29, 2017, WGFP changed formats to classic hits as “The Lake 940”.[5] The station previously broadcast a country format.
