WMOH (1450 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a mixed news/talk and sports talk format. Licensed to Hamilton, Ohio, USA, the station serves the Cincinnati area. The station is currently owned by Vernon R. Baldwin, Inc. and features programing from Yahoo! Sports Radio and Salem Communications.[2][3]

AM 1450 is the flagship station for Miami Redhawks football and basketball, and the Cincinnati affiliate for the Columbus Blue Jackets. 1450 also serves as the primary radio station for Butler County high school sports games as well.

History[edit]

WMOH was co-owned originally with former FM sister WHOH (currently Cumulus Media-owned WGRR) by its founder and original owner/operator Fort Hamilton Broadcasting. Both stations went to separate ownership in the 1970s. From its beginnings in the 1950s and through the 1960s, WMOH maintained a middle of the road format before switching to contemporary hits in the 1970s and through the mid-1980s.

As of January, 2008, the morning show is local. It features long time WMOH employee Steve Vaughn and the station owner's son-in-law, Chris Theiss.

The station had been Cincinnati's affiliate for ESPN Radio until July 2007 when it switched to WSAI. WMOH has since become more of a general talk station, featuring talk shows from Salem Radio Network during the day, and Yahoo! Sports Radio at night.
