WHOF (101.7 FM) – branded My 101.7 – is a commercial adult contemporary radio station licensed to North Canton, Ohio, serving both the Canton and Akron metro areas. Owned by iHeartMedia, Inc., the station is the local affiliate for programs hosted by nationally syndicated personalities Ron Wilson and Jim Brickman. The WHOF studios are located in North Canton, while the station transmitter resides in Canton. In addition to standard analog transmission, WHOF broadcasts over two HD Radio channels, and is available online via iHeartRadio.
WHOF began as WJER-FM, under license to Dover, Ohio, on July 25, 1968. On April 14, 2006, the Federal Communications Commission approved a request from Clear Channel Communications to move the WJER-FM city of license to North Canton, Ohio. On December 27, 2006, the station adopted a new callsign, WHOF, and signed off. On January 16, 2007, WHOF signed back on as My 101.7 with an adult contemporary format; Billy Joel's "My Life" was the first song to air.
WHOF airs Mornings with Jon and Amy on weekday mornings; music accounts for nearly all other programming throughout the week. On weekends, the station also airs syndicated programs In the Garden with Ron Wilson via Clear Channel; and Your Weekend with Jim Brickman via Cumulus Media Networks. The WHOF-HD2 digital subchannel airs a country music format, simulcasting on 99.7 W259BW Canton, as "99.7 Canton's New Country". In mid-November the main station switches to an all Christmas-music format, switching back the day after Christmas.
