WPHH (93.5 FM) is an American radio station licensed to serve the community of Hope Hull, Alabama, United States. The station broadcasts to the Montgomery area.

History[edit]

Logo as WRJM-FM

The station license and operation was transferred to William C Carn, III as Trustee for Stage Door Development, Inc in February 2008 by the US Bankruptcy Court.[2] The then-WRJM-FM was later sold to Gulf South Communication's The Radio People on September 8, 2008, who then swapped formats with new sister station WDBT.[3]

The station had been broadcasting a News Talk Information format featuring programming from ABC Radio and Premiere Radio Networks prior to the switch. The long-time call sign "WRJM-FM" was changed to "WUSD" on August 28, 2008.[1]

In January 2009, the station applied to the FCC for authorization to change its community of license from Geneva to Hartford, Alabama.[4] This move became effective in July 2009.

On May 10, 2011, the station simulcasted its sister station 105.3 FM, which carried the talk format at the time.

On December 23, 2011, the station changed its call sign to WDBT. WDBT continued to carry the news-talk format, while 105.3, now WECB, returned to a country format.

On October 12, 2015, WDBT changed their call letters to WLDA. Effective October 13, 2015, Gulf South Communications sold WLDA to Brantley Broadcast Associates for $225,000. On October 15, WLDA went silent.

In between October 2015 and 2016, this station made its move from Dothan to the Montgomery (Hope Hull) Area, relocated to 93.5 FM and downgraded their power to 4,400 watts.

On October 5, 2016, WLDA changed their call letters to WPHH.
