Haverford radio station updated

HAVERFORD TWP. The Haverford High School radio station, said to be the oldest of its kind in the nation, has taken a big step toward getting its FCC license renewed by significantly upgrading equipment, the school said.

On Thursday, the station, WHHS (99.9 FM), held a ribbon-cutting at its Kal and Lucille Rudman Studio, named for the benefactors who kicked in $10,000 for the upgrades. Kal Rudman, a Philadelphia native and music-industry icon who founded the trade publication the Friday Morning Quarterback, was a guest at the event. Upgrades include digital consoles and state-of-the-art computers.

The station began as an experiment in radio electronics in 1949, has been on the air since, and can be heard in most of the county. The station provides training for students interested in the business, and school officials said it is believed to be the oldest high school student-run station in the country. - Inquirer staff
