WWHX is an FM radio station on 100.7 MHz at Normal, Illinois. It received its license on January 10, 2006,[1] and began its current Rhythmic Top 40 format with the name Hot 100.7 on April 1, 2018.[2] The station is a Neuhoff Media through licensee Neuhoff Media Bloomington, LLC.[3]

History[edit]

100.7 signed on in August 2005 as WVMG with an adult contemporary format known as Magic 100.7. Magic signed on as a direct competitor to Star 107.7, but had a better signal within Bloomington/Normal. The station had modest success but was able to eventually drive competitor Star 107.7 out of the format in 2007. Throughout its years as an AC station it flipped to a Christmas format every November around Thanksgiving. The station hired Fasig, a known talent from WBNQ as a morning host. In March 2012, then-owner Connoisseur Media pulled the plug on Magic and flipped to a CHR format as Hits 100.7.

The station continued to air a contemporary hit radio format until April 1, 2018, when it switched to a Rhythmic CHR format with the branding "Hot 100.7: The Beat of BloNo".[2]
