On October 1, 2009, the station discontinued to pave way for a new station as WAV FM. A joint venture of audioWAV (www.wavatmospheric.com) and MediaQuest Holdings, a CHR Format FM, sharing the same programming with sister station in Cebu City. After a good run and momentum gained, the need to sync TV5 and FM radio was inevitable. The group agreed and reformatted the station as Radyo5 101.9 News FM Davao, the first and only originating news/talk radio station on the FM band in December 2011.

It began simulcasting Manila's 92.3 News FM. On December 3, 2012, the station was launched as a full-fledged originating radio station serving radio listeners in Metro Davao. It began its main broadcast at 4:00am with the first local radio program entitled Buena Mano Salvo sa Singko anchored by Robert Teo.
