West Hull Community Radio, also known as WHCR is a local community radio station, which launched in 2007. It serves the areas of West Hull, England and surrounding towns and villages of Anlaby, Cottingham, Hessle and Willerby with an adult population of over 90,000.
The station's music policy is classic hit music from the 1960s to the present day during daytime hours, with a much broader mix of music than any commercial stations in the area during the evening. WHCR focuses on local news and sports. The station works on an average 60% music - 40% speech principle with each show having slightly different amounts of these.
In August 2011 WHCR drive-time presenter Pete Mills won the Hull Radio Personality of the Year Award in a three-week online poll carried out by the Hull based telecom company Karoo part of the KCom group beating 10 other radio personalities from other local commercial and BBC stations.
On 19 October 2012 WHCR moved from the Anlaby Road Studio to a new purpose built studio in the Darley's building on Porter Street.
