History

Logo used until March of 2014.

WDHC-FM came on the air as WCST-FM in 1965, but later changed to WDHC with the "Down Home County" branding in 1996. WDHC was originally on 93.5 FM and moved to 92.9 FM in 2005 with a taller tower and twice the original size and double the original power of 93.5.

WDHC's distant grade signal can be heard in Winchester, Virginia, Hagerstown, Maryland and Martinsburg, West Virginia.

In 2006, WDHC and sister station WCST finally made a presence on the internet of sorts, with a MySpace Group operated by employees of the station. This, to date, is the only online presence WDHC and WCST have had.

In 2008, WDHC launched their website. Interestingly, at the time, WDHC had copied this page, verbatim, on their "station history" page. In 2011, this was removed from the site entirely.

In April 2009, WDHC DJ Travis Lee, 27, known on the air as "Mr. T", was killed by a train while camping with friends in Morgan County, West Virginia.[1][2]

In 2011, WDHC switched their branding from "Down Home Country" to "Country 92-9" and to a more mainstream Country format, as well as updating their website.

In March of 2014, WDHC dropped its longtime Country format for a hybrid Classic Hits/Classic Top 40 format as "Max 92-9".
