WHTI is a Soft Adult Contemporary formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Lakeside, Virginia, serving the Richmond/Petersburg area.[1] WHTI is owned and operated by SummitMedia, LLC.[2]

History[edit]

From 1999 to 2010, WDYL aired a Modern Rock format as Y101. On April 29th, 2010, at 2PM, after playing Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day, 100.9 flipped to CHR as Hot 100.9, signing on with Rude Boy by Rihanna.

In May 2014, WHTI began directing its listeners to "change your presets" to 106.1 MHz (W291CL), which had signed on earlier in the month as a simulcast of the station.

On May 22nd 2014, the Contemporary Hit Radio format was removed from 100.9 and replaced with stunting with rain, birds and other sounds. The station flipped to a Soft Adult Contemporary using the Easy 100.9 branding on May 23, 2014 at 8:00am EDT.
