Tuned into WYSP to listen to some classic rock, maybe a taste of Led Zeppelin? Well, the classic rock ain't there anymore.
WYSP has gone to its watery grave, giving way to sports radio.
Philly sports radio station 610WIP (610-AM) has undergone its previously-announced expansion into the FM universe (which is beamed out to your eager ears thanks to frequency modulation), retooling itself as SportsRadio 94 WIP (94.1-FM).
Folks who passionately believe in amplitude modulation need not worry, WIP also will continue to broadcast at 610-AM.
The revamped CBS Radio property will launch its weekday programming on Tuesday:
The 6 to 10 p.m. slot belongs to Rob Ellis (or, if there’s a game to sports play-by-play).
And Big Daddy Graham will hold your hand (and coo in your ears) for the overnight show, broadcasting from 2 to 5:30 a.m.
