WXDC is a Classic Hits only formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, serving the Berkeley Springs/Hancock area. WXDC is owned and operated by Metro Radio, Inc.
The station came on the air as WCST-FM in 1965, but later changed to WDHC with the "Down Home County" branding in 1996. WDHC was originally on 93.5 FM and moved to 92.9 FM in 2005 with a taller tower and twice the original size and double the original power of 93.5.
In 2006, WDHC and sister station WCST finally made a presence on the internet of sorts, with a MySpace Group operated by employees of the station. This, to date, is the only online presence WXDC and WCST have had.
In 2008, WDHC launched their website. Interestingly, at the time, WDHC had copied this page, verbatim, on their "station history" page. In 2011, this was removed from the site entirely.
In 2011, WDHC switched their branding from "Down Home Country" to "Country 92-9" and to a more mainstream Country format, as well as updating their website.
In March 2014, WDHC dropped its longtime Country format for a hybrid Classic Hits/Classic Top 40 format as "Max 92-9".
In January 2017, WDHC was sold to Metro Radio of Fairfax, Virginia, who owns WTNT in the Washington market. Metro fired the entire staff, changed the callsign to WXDC, and began simulcasting WTNT's Spanish-language programming on March 8. Due to community backlash, Metro Radio entered into a local marketing agreement with Hancock, Maryland restaurant owner Diane Smith, who flipped the station back to English-language classic hits "Max 92-9" on May 1.
