WHUN (1150 AM) is a classic hits station serving the Huntingdon, Pennsylvania area. As of 2016, the station is known as "Hunny 103.5" (simulcasting WHUN-FM 103.5 Huntingdon). WHUN is owned by Kristin Cantrell and the broadcast license is held by Southern Belle, LLC.

History[edit]

WHUN began as WHUN in 1947, and among its original personnel was Cary H. Simpson, who assisted in building the station and would later build a series of his own stations in central and northern Pennsylvania.

For many years, WHUN's ownership would be relatively unchanged, with the station and its FM sister, WLAK, which would come on the air years later, staying in the Biddle and McMeen families until the stations were sold in the mid-1990s to Forever Broadcasting.

The station's call sign was changed to WLLI on February 8, 2010, and from 2010-2012, the station was a country music station known as Willy AM 1150. On December 31, 2012, the format changed to sports radio, and the station became known as ESPN Radio 1150. The call sign was changed back to WHUN on January 2, 2013.

Effective September 1, 2015, Forever Broadcasting sold WHUN and sister station WHUN-FM to Southern Belle, LLC for $100,000.

In 2016 WHUN changed their format from sports to a simulcast of classic hits-formatted WHUN-FM.
