The station's current programming is a simulcast of Huntsville, Alabama, sister station WBHP (1230 AM), "The Valley's Big Talker." The studios for both stations are located in Madison, Alabama. The station is an affiliate of the Atlanta Braves radio network.

History

In October 1988 the station, which had been airing a Gospel music format, briefly featured an all-Elvis Presley format using the advertising tagline "WHOS alive?". In the 1990s it carried a simulcast of then co-owned WDRM and its country music format.

Notable former WHOS air personalities include George Rose who, along with his alter-ego "Cousin Josh" character, hosted "The Cousin Josh Jam-O-Ree" on several North Alabama radio stations in a career than began in 1948 and ended with his death in 2006.
