WHGH (AM 840) is a radio station broadcasting an Urban Contemporary format., and licensed for Thomasville, Georgia, USA, in the Tallahassee, Florida area. The station is owned by Moses L. Gross, a black Thomas County Commissioner, through his HGH Investments Corporation.[1]

The station's license was cancelled and its callsign deleted from the Federal Communications Commission's database on April 6, 2012 for failure to renew.[2] The licensee submitted a petition for waiver and reinstatement, claiming that "the loss of WHGH was represents a severe blow to the people it serves" and "The Commission should not let a rigid adherence to its rules result in the loss of yet another minority-owned voice in our Nation's media landscape."[1] The FCC granted a waiver in June 2013, restoring the callsign and accepting a late renewal application, and granting special temporary authority to resume operations pending renewal.[3][4]
