“WIP has a 25-year track record of being the premier sports station in Philadelphia and the move to FM is part of a natural evolution we’ve seen successfully work in several major cities across the nation,” said Marc Rayfield, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Philadelphia. “We’ve always been a great sports talk radio station – now we’ll be located on a much busier corner in a larger neighborhood. One of the best years in Philadelphia sports has just become better.”
The station’s new weekday programming schedule will be highlighted by WIP veterans and the addition of Philadelphia sports broadcasting icon Michael Barkann.
