WHIL (91.3 FM) is an NPR-affiliated radio station in Mobile, Alabama. It primarily features classical music and news and talk programming. WHIL's signal travels in about a 45-mile radius from Mobile--serving the extreme southern tip of Alabama along the state's portion of the Gulf Coast (and some counties to the north, in southwestern Alabama), as well as the Gulf Coast counties of southeastern Mississippi and extreme northwestern Florida.

Until 2011, the station maintained studios on the campus of Spring Hill College, a Jesuit institution that started the station and held the broadcast license.

On July 1, 2011, WHIL-FM discontinued operations as a stand-alone station, having been acquired by the University of Alabama to serve as a local affiliate for its Alabama Public Radio network.


Women Handball International League, also known as Czech-Slovak Interliga, is a supranational championship created in 2002 that serves as the highest women's handball league in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Following the end of the championship the four best-placed teams from each country play separate play-offs to determine the national champions. The inaugural edition was also contested by Hypo Niederösterreich from Austria.

The number of teams in the WHIL has ranged from eleven in 2005 and 2009 to fourteen in 2011. As of the 2013-14 season, it is currently contested by twelve teams - eight from the Czech Republic and four from Slovakia. After Austria's win in its only appearance, Slovakia dominated the following six seasons, while the Czech Republic has won all four editions since 2010. Iuventa Michalovce is the most successful team in the competition with four titles, followed by Slavia Prague and Slovan Duslo Šaľa with two.
