Owned by the CBS Radio subsidiary of CBS Corporation, WWJ's studios are in the Panasonic Building in Southfield, and its transmitter is located near Newport.
WWJ began daily broadcasts on August 20, 1920, operating under an amateur radio license with the call sign "8MK".
In March 2005, WWJ began streaming its programming over the Internet; in August 2005, the station began offering podcasts of newsmakers, interviews, and some of the station's feature programming.
In August 2006 it also began broadcasting in the HD Radio format.

WWJ has reduced the use of its main slogan, "All news, all the time", due to its occasional inclusion of sporting events.
