History[edit]

Previously licensed to an earlier ownership group as WIZO, the station was assigned the call sign "WHEW" by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on October 1, 1996.[1] Following a series of missteps by the licensee, WHEW's call sign was deleted from the FCC database and the broadcast license cancelled in August 2012. After a lengthy appeal, the station was fully reinstated in September 2013.[1]
