WGHL is a commercial radio station located in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, broadcasting to the Louisville, Kentucky area on 105.1 FM Broadcasting. The station's studios are located in downtown Louisville and the transmitter site is in Jefferson Memorial Forest on the southern edge of Louisville/Jefferson County proper.
The station previously aired an active rock music format branded as "Everything That Rocks" (formerly "New Rock 105.1"). As of (at least) July 15, 2009, the then-WLRS format changed to "FM TALK" and featured the Mancow radio show in the morning.
From 1964 to 2000, WLRS operated on 102.3 FM. For more on the history of the original WLRS, see WXMA.
Previous to picking up the WLRS calls in 2000, 105.1 FM played contemporary Christian music as WXLN.
On November 1, 2012, WLRS dropped its talk format and began stunting with Christmas music, branded as "Christmas 105.1". On Christmas Eve 2012, WLRS has renamed themselves "Easy Rock 105.1" with a soft AC/oldies format. On January 30, 2013, WLRS changed their call letters to WESI, to go with the "Easy Rock 105.1" branding.
On October 13, 2014, 105.1 flipped to classic hits as The New 105.1 GHL-FM, Louisville's Greatest Hits, launching with the usual 10,000 songs in a row. The call letters were changed to WGHL on October 16, 2014.
WGHL is owned by Alpha Media.
