WHLF radio was born in October 1947. WHLF is Halifax County’s first radio station and was founded by the late John L. Cole, Jr, a county native who grew up in the Asbury community of Halifax County.

In the beginning, WHLF was a 250-watt am radio station. Over the years, the station grew with the community and began broadcasting on the fm band in the early 60’s, providing improved service for our listeners and advertising clients. WHLF programming was simulcast on the am and fm bands until the late 90’s when all programming migrated exclusively to the fm band in response to our listeners’ tastes.

The focus of WHLF’s programming over the years has been on Halifax County and it’s towns and communities. WHLF maintains a full time local news staff that covers the area’s news better than anyone else and is the most reliable source for information of local closings and cancellations when the weather turns bad. WHLF continues to be the only live broadcast source of Halifax County Blue Comet football, basketball and baseball games and racing from the South Boston Speedway. We hope you’ll check out the links elsewhere on our website for much more info on the local news, sports and racing and much more.

Musically, WHLF is synonymous with variety. We play a great variety of the most popular music from the 80’s, 90’s and today…not too edgy, not too sleepy. It’s a blend of music you and your family can enjoy at home, at work, in your car, while you walk or jog. We are your 24/7 companion with great music, news, weather, sports, local events and features that compliment the lifestyles of most county residents.

We hope you enjoy listening to WHLF broadcast on 95.3 fm and we hope you will enjoy browsing our website at www.whlf.com. Our website, and our broadcast programming, are designed to be a reflection of those who make Halifax County their home. Listed below is contact information for our key staff and management.
