WHAS is the most powerful radio signal in Kentucky. It can be streamed worldwide but its over-the-air signal pierces atop most of the contiguous 48 United States. WHAS Radio will turn 100 next July, pumping out news, interviews, and information 24/7.
Whether we’re talking to Dr. Dunkenstein, Dr. Fauci, or Dr. Pepper, we are delivering audio and video content to keep our community informed. Thanks for hanging with us for our first century!
That’s our boy Ian Vertrees above. He’s a deejay on WQMF and the daily producer and voice contributor on the Terry Meiners Show. The iHeart machine moves because it is fueled by strong employees.
