Here's something interesting. I queried the FCC data base for WHRI as an AM station, no such license. I then checked all the AM stations in S.C. and there is only one AM in Rock Hill, S.C. and it is WAVO on 1150 kHz. 5 kW. day , .059 kW. night - yes 59 Watts. It is owned by WHVN, Inc. which sounds like a contraction of Heaven............
I then queried the WHRI call and found it is assigned to the International Bureau. So it may be a legitimate SW station. I have no idea how to search the International Bureau data base, I can't even see a listing under "Search FCC Data Bases". FWIW there is no FM licensed as WHRI either.

Last winter I kept hearing strange transmissions on 1980 kc.  CW,
music, lots of nonsense.  I didn't know what to make of it but
eventually figured out that two AM bc stations, one on 1160 running 50
KW and one on 820 running 5 KW were mixing and I was getting the
product of their groundwaves in my preamp, because I had no matching
networks or filters, just a random length wire.  a filter ahead of the
preamp solved the problem.  If I had been out in the country this
probably wouldn't have happened.  Anyway, maybe you are hearing some
sort of product Jim.  Take the licensed sw frequency of that station
and subtract it from 28947 then tune to the difference and see what's
