- The station came
on the air in 1948 and has always had the WHOS calls. The
station is noted for having a country format that lasted nearly 40
years. It gave way to a 24-hour all news format in 1998 or
1999, and that eventually gave way to a simulcast with Huntsville's
WBHP. The station was also simulcast with FM translator
W293AH, also licensed to Huntsville, and WQRV's HD-2 subchannel, but
those broke away in November 2012 for an all-Christmas format.
The station was granted a construction permit for a new FM
translator on 101.5 MHz in June 2018.
