WFAB, "La Fabulosa" broadcast a Spanish-language format on 990 throughout the 1950s and 1960s but lost their license and was off the air for many years before the Disney corporation was able to obtain permission to operate on this frequency. They used a six-tower inline array. WMYM uses a six-tower parallelogram. The pattern had to be tightened because of an upgrade on a Pompano Beach station on 980.
On February 12, 2015, Enrique Cusco's Actualidad Radio Group (owner of the Spanish News/Talk trimulcast WLVJ, WURN and WURN-FM) announced that it would acquire WMYM, for a price of $2,100,000. The sale was completed on May 29, 2015
The station discontinued its Radio Disney affiliation and went silent on June 11, 2015. WMYM returned to the air, and switched to sports programming from ESPN Deportes Radio, which effectively continued Disney's programming of the station. WMYM serves as the flagship station for ESPN Deportes Radio's programming.
