History

94.9 WHOM signed on the air as WWMT in 1958. Several years later, the station became a sister station to WMTW-TVmarker and took the WMTW-FM calls. After being sold separate from WMTW-TV, the station took the WHOM call letters (which previously been on 92.3 FM in New York City) in July 1976. Broadcasting from the top of Mount Washington in New Hampshire's White Mountainsmarker, WHOM is one of northern America's most powerful FM signals, reaching Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Southern Canada and Massachusetts.

Another adult contemporary station that broadcasts from a high peak is WEZFmarker in Burlington, Vermontmarker, with a transmitter atop Mount Mansfieldmarker and also in New Englandmarker. WEZF is owned by Vox Communications.

The station offered a Beautiful Music format consisting of instrumental versions of pop songs as well as several soft vocals per hour. This format continued through the 1980s. In January 1990, the station abruptly dropped the long time easy listening format for a soft adult contemporary format. The station kept the staff and still marketed themselves as an easy listening station. In the mid 1990s, the station began adding softer songs by Hot AC and CHR artists and began playing current product. By 2000, WHOM was more of a mainstream Adult Contemporary station. The station was sold to Citadel a few years ago. 94.9 WHOM also broadcasts their radio program over the internet from their official web page.
