WFHM-FM is a commercial FM radio station in Cleveland, Ohio broadcasting at 95.5 MHz with a Christian contemporary format. Its transmitter is located in Warrensville Heights, Ohio.

It is also the Cleveland affiliate for John Tesh's nationally syndicated evening radio show.

The station calls itself "95.5 The Fish".

Since 2005, the station has switched to an all Christmas music format from Thanksgiving week until right after Christmas.

Prior to July 2001, the 95.5 frequency was the long-standing home of WCLV, Cleveland's fine arts and classical music station. A three-way swap engineered by WCLV's owner, Seaway Communications, plus Clear Channel Communications and Salem Communications, resulted in WCLV trading the 95.5-FM license in exchange for Clear Channel's 104.9-FM license and Salem's 1420-AM license. (The 1420-AM license has since been sold back to Salem.)

As a result, WHK-FM (which was a mere simulcast of WHK 1420-AM) moved from 98.1-FM in Canton to take WCLV's place, and was re-launched as WFHM. Prior to that, the station dates back to WTOF in the early 1980s.

The Christian contemporary format previously appeared on WZLE 104.9-FM in Lorain in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Ironically, this was the very same dial position WCLV moved to in 2001.
