WUHU (107.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Top 40 (CHR) format. Licensed to Smiths Grove, Kentucky, USA, the station serves the Bowling Green area. The station is currently owned by Forever Communications, Inc. and features programing from ABC Radio.[1]

History[edit]

The station was assigned the call letters WBLG on 1985-11-01. On 1999-04-30, the station changed its call sign to WBLG-FM and on 2001-03-15 to the current WUHU.[2]

The current format and "WUHU" branding were introduced on April 1, 2001, after a weekend stunt in which the station played the same three songs (each of which featured the word "woo-hoo") repeatedly.[3]

"After a weekend of repeatedly playing the same three songs in what some listeners took as an April Fool's Day prank, radio station WBLG-FM was reborn Monday morning as WUHU-FM. In preparation for the switch, the WRUS Inc.-owned station played Dire Straits' "Walk of Life," which features the word "woo-hoo," and two songs titled "Woohoo" - one by Blur and one by the Rocketeens, throughout the weekend."
