WDHS is a television station in Iron Mountain, Michigan, broadcasting locally on VHF channel 8. WDHS is owned by Withers Broadcasting, along with WDTV in Weston-Clarksburg, West Virginia.

The station is dark.[1] It has suffered from long periods of silence in previous years; at times, it has come on the air only for a short period on an annual basis merely as a way to keep its FCC license active.

When WDHS is on the air, it can be seen in parts of Baraga, Delta, Dickinson, Florence (WI), Forest (WI), Gobegic, Houghton, Iron, Langlade (WI), Marinette (WI), Marquette, Menominee, Oconto (WI), Oneida (WI), and Vilas (WI) counties in Michigan and in Wisconsin.
