WHOG-FM (95.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Classic rock format. Licensed to Ormond-By-The-Sea, Florida, USA, the station serves the Daytona Beach area, from a transmitter site located in Holly Hill. The station is currently owned by Southern Stone Communications.[1]

The station currently plays a mix of Classic Rock of the 1970s and 1980s from groups such as Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, and Aerosmith, as well as Classic Modern Rock from artists such as Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Green Day, Nickleback, Creed, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

History[edit]

WHOG was acquired in 1996 from Root Communications as radio station WTSM changing the call letters and format. WTSM was operating as a Westwood One 1970s format station. Black Crow Media would later change its format to Classic Rock.

In late 2008, WHOG dropped the "Classic Rock" designation and started classifying itself as simply "Rock Radio".

In January 2013, ownership of WHOG was transferred to Southern Stone Communications.[2]
