WHER (1430 kHz AM) was the first "All-Girl" radio station when it went on the air in October 1955. Staffed almost exclusively by women (including broadcasting pioneer Vida Jane Butler), the station spawned a series of imitators, but later evolved into a mixed-gender staff rechristened WWEE.
The radio station was the brainchild of Sam Phillips, who used a portion of the $35,000 he made from the sale of Elvis Presley's recording contract to RCA Records to finance the station. A portion of the balance of the funding came from Holiday Inn founder Kemmons Wilson, who also provided the station's first home, in a part of the third Holiday Inn ever built.
As of 2008, the 1430 kHz frequency is occupied by WOWW, a country music station.
Wher or WHER could refer to:
- Wher, a dragon-like creature in the fantasy series Dragonriders of Pern
- WHER (defunct), a defunct radio station (1430 AM) in Memphis, Tennessee, United States
- WLAU, a radio station (99.3 FM) licensed to Heidelberg, Mississippi, United States, as WHER from 1999 to 2012
