Artists heard as part of the new format, according to the station's website, include The Beatles, Carpenters, The Supremes, Barry Manilow, Anne Murray, Frank Sinatra, Kenny Rogers, and Neil Diamond. The station ran an annual trivia contest between 1982 and 2005. The contest was billed as the "world's longest running commercial trivia contest" before the 2006 contest was canceled. They have added a simulcast on 97.3 FM because AM 1100 does not operate all day. The 97.3 simulcast is available 24 hours a day, and is in operation before, during, and after AM 1100 is on the air. On May 05, 2011, WISS replaced classic hits with news/talk introducing themselves as a Fox News Radio station.
