History

Founded by Gimbels department store, the station first went on the air on March 17, 1922 as Philadelphia's first commercial radio station with the call sign "WIP", which people mistakenly think stands for "Wireless In Philadelphia" and "Watch Its Progress", when in fact, "WIP" was a call sign randomly issued by the federal government. In the 1940s and 1950s, the station was an affiliate of the Mutual Broadcasting System. From the 1950s through the early 1970s, the station had a MOR format. With this format, the station played the hits of the 1940s, along with non-rock and soft-rock hits of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, mixed in with some music that was new at the time. In addition, the station was full service in approach, as they had a heavy emphasis on news as well. Gimbels was a major American department store corporation from 1887 through the late 20th century. ... is the 76th day of the year (77th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1922 (MCMXXII) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... The Mutual Broadcasting System (MBS) was an American radio network, in operation from 1934 to 1999. ... Middle of the Road was a Scottish pop group who enjoyed great success across Europe in the early 1970s. ...


By the mid 1970s, WIP evolved to an adult contemporary format, and for a while, they were heavy on 1950s and 1960s rock and roll oldies. The station would start adding sports programming in the mid-1980s before changing to an all-sports format near the end of 1987. Adult contemporary music, frequently abbreciated to just AC, is a type of radio format that plays mainstream and pop music, without hip-hop or rap since, as per the name, it is geared more towards adults than teens. ...


At the height of its popularity as a full service/adult contemporary station in the late 1970s and early 1980s, WIP was the home to some of the most well-known air personalities in the city, including popular morning host Ken Garland, mid-day host Bill “Wee Willie” Webber, afternoon host Tom Moran, evening host Tom Lamaine and overnight host Nat Wright. WIP’s presentation, like other full-service stations, was heavily dependent on its personalities to entertain the audience as much as the music itself.


In addition to music, full-service music stations in that era were typically home to strong news operations, and WIP had local newscasts every hour, seven days a week (at one point they offered half hourly newscasts around the clock). The weekday morning news was so extensive that they had two anchors in later years, and even introduced a 5 a.m. 30 minute newscast. One of WIP’s news reporters, Jan Gorham, remains with the station doing sports updates on a part-time basis.


The station hosted a popular radiothon for one weekend a year for several years, raising funds to fight leukemia. The events were staged on a large scale, in venues like hotel ballrooms, with local and national celebrities visiting the live broadcast.


WIP’s best-known contest was Cash Call, a call-out game in which the DJs picked numbers out of the phone book or from postcards submitted by listeners. If the person at the other end of the call could identify the exact amount of money in the “jackpot,” down to the standard 61-cent ending. Players who knew the 61 cents but not the dollar amount typically won a token prize from a sponsor. Every incorrect guess lead to a few dollars being added to the jackpot; a correct guess resulted in the jackpot being reset to $61.61.


Another long-running contest late in WIP’s run as a music station was Team Trivia. Two area businesses competed, one on the morning show with Ken Garland, the other on the afternoon show with (Bruce) Stevens and (Nick) Seneca (who had replaced Tom Moran).


As the popularity of music on FM radio grew, stations like Magic 103 and Kiss 100 began to eat away at WIP’s audience. For a time, the station experimented with general interest talk. Michelle Iaia was brought on to host “WIPeople Talk,” a weeknight call-in show from 8 p.m. to midnight. The show would later expand to include a weekend edition, and over time the talk block was expanded to run from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. (with the station touting that it played music all day and talked all night). One of the regular features was a Friday night segment called Desperate & Dateless, a sort of radio personals listings. That show eventually spun off into a stand-alone Saturday night program that included music mixed in with the calls from single listeners.


The local talk was scaled back to make room for Larry King’s syndicated radio show in the overnight hours, and eventually most of the local talk was replaced by music once again. The station later tried a programming experiment known as Midday Infotainment, a features-based midday show hosted by two people. That move pushed Bill Webber out of his longtime midday slot into the early evening shift. The show was cancelled in less than a year, and the regular music format, hosted once more by Webber, returned.


As WIP continued adding more current music, it also added the weekly countdown show “Dick Clark’s National Music Survey.” WIP aired the version produced for adult contemporary stations, while WSTW-FM in Wilmington, listenable in much of the Philadelphia market, aired the top 40 version.


WIP’s transition to sports was gradual, unlike many so-called format flips that happen instantaneously. More and more sports hosts were brought on to replace the music hosts that left, including Ken Garland, who moved to cross-town WPEN-AM, then a nostalgia-based music station. Garland was initially replaced by WIP part-timer Jeff Brown before the sports-based morning show debuted. Bill Webber’s show, then limited to 9 a.m. to noon, was the last regularly scheduled weekday music program. Webber also would eventually join WPEN, hosting his familiar midday slot on Saturdays.


WIP continued playing music on Saturday mornings for a shot time longer, before the transition to all-sports (save for the overnight talk show with Larry King/Jim Bohannon) was complete.


For many years, the station was owned by Metromedia. The station was purchased by Ed Snider's Spectacor Group, the longtime owner of the National Hockey League's Philadelphia Flyers, in 1987. Snider sold the station to Infinity Broadcasting in 1994. Infinity later merged with CBS, and the station is now owned by CBS Radio. The station made its largest progression under former station manager Tom Bigby, who opened it to more advertisement and a wider format aside from a strictly "sports-talk" station. 1970s logo for WTCN-TV (now KARE) in Minneapolis, which included the corporate logo for Metromedia; this logo was also used by KTTV in Los Angeles Metromedia Producers Corporation logo Metromedia (also often MetroMedia) was a media company that owned radio and television stations in the United States from 1956...
