Weekdays begin with the R.J. Harris Breakfast Show simulcast from co-owned 580 WHP in nearby Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The rest of the weekday line up features mostly syndicated shows from the co-owned Premiere Networks, including Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Buck Sexton. Late nights, podcasts from iHeartRadio are heard. Most hours begin with world and national news from Fox News Radio.

In the 1980s, it played a syndicatedadult standards format, known as The Music of Your Life.

WRAW once broadcast in AM stereo using the C-QUAM system.[3]

On February 27, 2014, WRAW changed to Spanish Contemporary, branded as “Rumba 1340”.[4] Programming was also heard on FM translatorW222BY on 92.3 FM.

On August 8, 2019, WRAW broke from simulcasting on the translator due to it being sold to Educational Media Foundation (EMF). But the Rumba format can still be heard on the translator, which is fed from co-owned WRFY-FM on 102.5 FM HD2 until the sale closes.

On Monday, August 12, 2019, WRAW ended Spanish programming and began airing a Conservative Talk format branded as NewsRadio 1340 WRAW.[5] Another radio station in Reading, AM 830WEEU, discontinued airing Rush Limbaugh‘s nationally syndicated show in a cost-cutting measure stemming from its parent company’s bankruptcy and sale. That prompted WRAW to pick up the broadcast, and carry other conservative talk programming, from co-owned Premiere Networks.
