WQHN (100.9 FM, "The Promise FM") is a radio station in East Jordan, Michigan. Broadcasting a Christian format, the station is owned by Northern Christian Radio.

History[edit]

WQHN began broadcasting on June 25, 1989 with the call sign WIZY.[1] Originally owned by Interlochen Center for the Arts, the station changed its call sign to WICV on August 11, 2003.[2][1] The station was an affiliate of Interlochen Public Radio's "Classical IPR" network.[1][3]

Effective March 26, 2018, Interlochen Center for the Arts sold WICV to Northern Christian Radio for $150,000, and the station picked up the new owner's "The Promise FM" Christian programming.[4][5][6][7] The station's call sign was changed to WQHN the same day.[2]
