Malagari and Hanbidge honor WNPV’s 60th anniversary, mark its closing

MONTGOMERY, APRIL 28 – State Reps. Steve Malagari and Liz Hanbidge, D-Montgomery, today announced that WNPV 98.5 FM and 1440 AM has reached 60 years of service to Montgomery and Bucks counties and will be closing its doors as of April 30.

“WNPV radio has been providing quality radio content since October of 1960,” Malagari said. “It’s unfortunate to see them closing their doors and leaving the airwaves after all of this time, but they have provided the community with a piece of local treasured history. They have received multiple awards, including from The Associated Press and the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters. We couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments.”

“After almost 60 years of conducting the vital service of sharing the voices and views of our local community, it’s sad to contemplate WNPV’s final broadcast,” Hanbidge said. “I’ll especially miss the emphasis the station placed on local and state politics and news. I wish all those associated with the station good fortune in their future endeavors and thank them for all they’ve done for the community.”

Malagari and Hanbidge recently honored WNPV with a citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives paying tribute to the radio station’s legacy.
