Update 3/23/14: EMF has closed on its acquisition of WHWT and taken the station temporarily off the air as it prepares to relaunch it with one of its non-commercial Christian networks.
The former management had some harsh words for the Huntsville business community following the departure of the “Hot 103.5” format.
Thanks to everyone in the Huntsville area who have supported Hot 103.5 over the past 6-years….sadly within hours we will say Goodbye!

Huntsville Business Owners do not buy Hip Hop Radio. So when you're spending at the mall..remember they did not invite you to come.
