The station signed on the air in 1961 as WBFG. The station broadcast religious programming until July 16, 1980 when it was sold. After the sale, the station changed its call letters to WLLZ ("Detroit's Wheels" also rumoured to stand for "We Love Led Zepplin" or "Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin") and changed its format to album oriented rock. In 1988, WLLZ introduced the nation's first weekly sports talk show on an FM rock and roll station, "The Sunday Sports Albom" hosted by Mitch Albom. WLLZ saw its fortunes slip in the early 1990s with the emergence of "alternative" rock groups like Nirvana and Pearl Jam who drove many of the 1980s "hair bands" off the charts. A format tweak from AOR to modern rock in the mid-1990s which put the station in competition with CIMX (88.7) and WHYT (96.3) for the alternative audience failed to reverse the station's dropping ratings, and on December 20, 1995, WLLZ became a jazz station, which it has been ever since. The WVMV calls were adopted in February 1996. July 16 is the 197th day (198th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, with 168 days remaining. ... 1980 (MCMLXXX) was a leap year starting on Tuesday. ...

For a while, WVMV and WJZZ were competitors in the Smooth Jazz format. When 105.9 was flipped to an urban format in August 1996, the WJZZ callsign was also discontinued, and it is now used for a Smooth Jazz station in Atlanta, Georgia — which, like WVMV, is the second (if one discounts Detroit's previous new age-format stations, WVAE 92.3 and WXCD 102.7) such formatted station to serve its city (WJZF was the first). Atlanta's WJZZ broadcasts at 107.5 FM. WDMK is a radio station in Detroit, Michigan broadcasting at 105. ...

"Smooth Jazz V98.7" usually beats its mainstream Adult Contemporary competition in the ratings, with a playlist that incorporates a great deal of soft R&B and AC pop. Smooth jazz flautist Alexander Zonjic is the station's morning drive host, and his music-intensive morning show is highly rated.
