On July 31, 1948, the Holland-Zeeland area welcomed its first permanent radio station as 1450 WHTC took to the air at 6 p.m.
On July 31, 2018, the station will celebrate 70 years of service with a special live broadcast beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The broadcast will begin with a special building rededication featuring a ribbon cutting with the Michigan West Coast Chamber of Commerce. The celebration will include special guests, building tours and an opportunity for guests to visit on or off the air.
The broadcast will be available nationwide at whtc.com, via their app, NextRadio or Alexa; and the broadcast will be made available as a podcast on the station’s website. The station’s website also has a special 70th anniversary section and all are welcome to check it out.
The MAB will be on hand July 31 and we’ll be posting photos on our Facebook and Twitter pages as well as the weekly News Briefs.
