- This station is
a new entrant into the Huntsville radio market for 2007, coming on
the air November 1st. It was reported that they
tested for about a day with Christmas music, but flipped to an urban
contemporary format the next day as "Hot 103-5", promising 10,000
songs in a row. This station was put on the air by Al Stroh of Stroh
Communications, displacing a 200 watt translator licensed to Madison
in the process.
February 2009 Stroh picked up a translator from Radio Assist
Ministry on 97.3. The translator, with 250 watts, is licensed
to Cullman but is physically located in or near Hartselle; will they
flip it from religious WAYH to their new WHWT?
January 2014 Stroh transferred the license to Educational Media
Foundation. As February began, the calls changed from WHWT to
WHVK (HuntsVille K-love) in preparation for a flip to EMF's K-Love
format. In late May 2014 the new owners filed to take the
station noncommercial. In May 2015, EMF announced that they would be
leasing the HD-2 of the station to the American Family Association
of Tupelo, Mississippi, for $350 a month. The station's HD
broadcasts appear to have come on (HD-1 only) in the month of April,
2016. It's unknown if or when the HD2/3 channels will
debut. In late May 2016 the station received a construction
permit to more than double power while also raising antenna
height. For this to happen, WLAY-FM in Muscle Shoals will be
moving to 100.1 MHz. The American Family Radio feed appears to
be active as of mid-July 2016, but on the HD-3, while the HD-2
launched as Air1 a few weeks later in early September. The
higher power facility went on the air in the late summer of 2016;
shortly after, the station received another permit to add another
hundred or so watts to the total power level, and that went on the
air in November 2016.
