WHFS (historic)
For the current unrelated AM radio station see: WHFS (AM)

WHFS was the call sign for three different FM stations in the Washington, D.C./ Baltimore, Maryland markets on various frequencies for nearly 50 years. The first and longest run was a progressive rock station and was usually, and affectionately, referred to as ' 'HFS'. For many local residents, it was the first place to hear such bands as R.E.M., The Specials, Pixies, The Smiths, The Monochrome Set, The Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, Stereolab, and New Order.

"HFS" returned to the airwaves on August 1, 2011 on WWMX-HD2 (106.5 FM) and is translated on 104.9 (W285EJ) as of April 1, 2014.


WHFS (1010 AM) is a radio station in the Tampa, Florida, area, owned by Beasley Broadcast Group. The station broadcasts at 50,000 watts during the day and 5,000 watts at night, directional towards the east and west to protect Jacksonville's WJXL by day, and New York City's WINS, Toronto's CFRB, and Calgary, Alberta's CBR at night. The station was assigned the WHFS call sign by the Federal Communications Commission on August 9, 2012. Its studios are in St. Petersburg while its transmitter is located east of Mango. WHFS broadcasts a business-oriented talk radio format simulcast from sister station WSBR in Boca Raton.
