In this age when local media is hard to find and community engagement is on the wane, WHCP community radio plays a vital role. Since 2015 WHCP has informed, inspired and delighted people from its home in Cambridge MD. WHCP helps Maryland’s Mid-Shore flourish by serving the economic, information, and inspiration needs of its citizens.

In 2022, WHCP won a rare new broadcast license from the FCC to expand from a low-power station (WHCP-LP) reaching 10 miles around Cambridge to a more powerful station reaching all of Dorchester, most of Talbot and other counties on the Mid-Shore, a service area with more than 70,000 people.

Launched on July 15, 2023, WHCP-FM incorporates the best of WHCP-LP and much more, providing information and inspiration that helps Maryland’s Mid-Shore flourish. We do this by being obsessively local while including adding NPR programs Morning Edition and All Things Considered
