Controversy

On November 24, 2020, WHMH morning host Aaron Imholte spent the majority of his show joking about KAZR morning host Heather Lee.

On November 25, 2020, Aaron Imholte resigned,[4] taking the trademarked Steel Toe Morning Show with him to Twitch.tv.

WHMH's current wake up program is The Johnny Rock Show.
