Vehicle makes a low whirring sound when driven. on 2009 Kia Sportage

The whirring sound starts as soon as you turn the engine on and continues while you drive. What would be the first thing to look at?

Firestone completed some other work and suggested that it was the alternator which Answer #1 also thought a possibility. I had other repairs needed and haven't fixed it yet.
