WERH (970 AM) was a radio station licensed to serve Hamilton, Alabama. The station was owned by Kate F. Fite. It aired a Southern Gospel music format on partial weekday mornings and all-day Sunday while playing a Country music format on weekday mornings and afternoons.[3]

Although Kate F. Fite was still listed as the station's licensee in the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) database, she died on June 15, 2001,[4] and the station's December 2003 license renewal application lists the licensee as "Kate F. Fite (deceased), Martha H. Fowler, & Megan Summerford."[5]

The station was assigned the WERH call letters by the FCC.[6]

WERH's license was cancelled by the FCC on February 12, 2015, due to the station having been silent for more than twelve months (since November 8, 2012).
