WKHF is a Hot Adult Contemporary formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Lynchburg, Virginia, serving Lynchburg, Bedford, and Appomattox in Virginia.[2] WKHF is owned and operated by Todd P. Robinson, Inc.[4]

History[edit]

A company organized as United States CP, LLC, owned by W. Philip Robinson, applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for this station's original construction permit on October 19, 2009. The FCC granted the permit on December 15, 2009, with a scheduled expiration date of December 15, 2012.[5] The station was assigned the call sign "WKHF" by the FCC on October 29, 2010.[3]

With construction completed and testing set to commence, the station applied for its license to cover on March 2, 2011.[6] As of March 4, 2011, this application was accepted for filing by the FCC and is awaiting further action by the commission.[6] After several days of equipment testing and broadcasting under program test authority, the station began regular broadcasting as "93-7 KHF; Your Music" at 7:00 P.M. on March 25, 2011.[1] The station was simulcast on WZZI, from June 2012 until November 2, 2012.

WKHF was later operated under a local marketing agreement by Radiowerks Broadcasting of Central Virginia, which was also working on a deal to purchase the station.[1] However, in June 2014, WKHF and sister station WJVR were sold to Todd Robinson's WVJT, LLC for $200,000. The sale was consummated on July 31, 2014.
