XRT, as it is called, plays a very broad library of mostly adult-oriented rock between the mid-'50s and present, including blues, reggae, folk-rock, pop, and rock and roll. There has been remarkably little disc jockey turnover at XRT since it began in 1972. Terri Hemmert is the DJ who has been with XRT the longest, since 1973.

The station plays a wide variety of both older and newer music. They play well over 5,000 cuts on a regular basis. Most artists come from the classic rock or alternative rock genre, though they play many other styles as well. The format as it exists today began in 1972 as a night-time-only progressive rock experiment, sharing the 93.1 frequency with a variety of different ethnic and foreign language programming that aired during the daylight hours. The part-time progressive rock format was gradually expanded until by 1976 it aired 24 hours a day. By the 1980s the station played primarily alternative music for that time. As the 1990s approached the station opted to stay with its core audience and move to an AAA format and continued its evolution to what it is today.

WXRT was locally owned until 1995. It was then purchased by Westinghouse, which had acquired WMAQ 670 (which has since changed call letters to WSCR) a few years before. WXRT joined the CBS family in 1996 when Westinghouse and CBS merged. CBS had since merged with Infinity Radio keeping the Infinity name for its radio division. CBS and Viacom would merge in 2000. So WXRT is a CBS Radio station whose parent companies are CBS and Viacom.
