What does WHER mean?
- WHER was the first "All-Girl" radio station when it went on the air in October 1955. Staffed almost exclusively by women, 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 Radio Disney affiliate.
