WPMH is a Christian Talk formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Portsmouth, Virginia, serving Hampton Roads. WPMH is owned by Chesapeake-Portsmouth Broadcasting Corporation.[1]

History[edit]

Chesapeake-Portsmouth purchased WRJR outright from Disney, along with WHKT, in January 2010.[2] In the interim, despite having previously brokered the station to Chesapeake-Portsmouth, Disney, in a Federal Communications Commission filing, stated that it took WRJR, along with five former Radio Disney stations slated to be sold (including WHKT), off the air on January 22.[3][4] WRJR did not leave the air.[5]
