This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on December 7, 1988, for a new station to serve Brantley, Alabama.[3] The new station was assigned the call letters WDHT-FM by the FCC on May 10, 1990.[1] On April 18, 1997, the station had its callsign changed to WMHS.[1] After nearly nine years of extensions, modifications (including a change in community of license to Luverne, Alabama), and construction, WMHS received its license to cover from the FCC on October 29, 1997.[4]

In November 1997, Brantley Broadcast Associates reached an agreement to sell this station to Capital Communications. The deal was approved by the FCC on January 22, 1998, and the transaction was consummated on February 20, 1998.[5] Concurrently, Capital Communications reached a contingent agreement to sell this station to Southern Star Communications, Inc. The deal was also approved by the FCC on January 22, 1998, and this transaction was also consummated on February 20, 1998.[6] On March 20, 1998, the new owners had the FCC change the station's callsign to WQLD.[1]

On August 20, 2004, the station had its callsign changed to WNTM.[1] The station was assigned the current WHLW call letters by the FCC on January 14, 2005.[1] With an urban contemporary gospel format, WHLW complements WZHT and WWMG under the all-urban Clear Channel cluster in Montgomery.
