WHLZ (100.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a country music format. Licensed to Marion, South Carolina, USA, the station serves the Florence area. The station is currently owned by Cumulus Media.[3]

History[edit]

Classy 100.5 signed on in December 1991.[4]

The first call letters for the 100.5 frequency were WQTI, at the same time the call letters WQTR went to what is now WWFN-FM.[2][5]

WKSY played country music.[6]

Cumulus Media bought classic rock WHSC-FM 98.5, alternative rock WBZF 100.5, and WMXT. The adult contemporary format from WMXT moved to 100.5, while alternative rock moved to 98.5.[7] Later, the letters WFSF were used.[2] Formats on 100.5 FM have included adult contemporary and CHR. The WHLZ call letters and format once belonged to a station in Manning, South Carolina which eventually moved to Charleston, South Carolina and became WIHB.

This station was once home to Bob and Sheri.

On July 3, 2013, at 3 PM, WHLZ rebranded as "Nash FM 100.5".
