History

WDOH was signed on in December 1972 by Tri-County Broadcasting . Originally with an automated music package entitled "Hitparade" produced by Drake-Chenault Enterprises. In 1980 the adult contemporary format switched to locally produced automation tapes prior to its switch in 1989 to a Country format. At the time of its founding, the station served the greater Delphos, Fort Jennings and Middle Point area with local news and sporting events. Its original studios and offices were located inside the original Commercial Bank building in downtown Delphos.

In the mid-'70's, Tri-County Broadcasting sold the FM outlet to Vogel Roach, Incorporated, who in the late 1980s tweaked the format to resemble more of a Classic Country format, competing against Jacor's owned and operated WIMT in Lima. In 2001 Vogel Roach purchased the station's first automation system replacing the original reel to reel system(nicknamed "The Demon") home built by original engineer and co-founder Ray Tanner. WDOH had been one of the last operations in the United States to operate on a reel to reel format.

In 2005, Maverick Media of Lima, who earlier that year had purchased Country WFGF, Top 40 WZOQ, Classic Hits WUZZ and Urban WLJM, purchased the country outlet and flipped it to an all-Christmas music station, making it the area's first all-Christmas station On December 26th, a new format was unveiled as the station took on a Soft Adult Contemporary format to protect new sister-owned country WFGF.
