History

WHDR was originally Classical WTMI, which ran from 1971 to 2001. On New Year's Eve 2001, it flipped to a "Pure Dance" format and became WPYM, "Party 93.1, South Florida's Pure Dance Channel." During its three year run, the station was popular with the area's dance music fans. The station earned an "Innovators Award" from Billboard magazine in 2002 and a "Best Dance Radio Station Award" at the 2004 Dancestar USA honors.

WPYM's demise came in February 14, 2005. With poor ratings, Cox Radio took advantage of the sudden departure of WZTA when it flipped from Rock to Hispanic Rhythmic as WMGE by picking up the Rock format.

WHDR is South Florida's only pure rock station. The playlist ranges from 70's, 80's & 90's mainstream rock to newly released mainstream rock & active rock.

On Monday January 5, 2009, the Bubba the Love Sponge Radio Network signed on. This popular morning show can be heard weekday mornings from 6am until 10am.

WHDR-HD2

On March 24, 2008, Cox radio relaunched "Party 93.1" on its HD2 subcarrier. Like its predecessor, this one is also running jockless but the dance music being played this time around is more broadened with more music from the trance & techno genre.
