Townsquare Media Sports 1450 WENJ Atlantic City will drop its simulcast of sister “97.3 ESPN” WENJ-FM and flip to Talk on Monday, October 15.
The new format is to be branded as “Talk Radio 1450 WPG” with actual calls of WPGG. The WPG calls were used on an Atlantic City owned station in the 1920’s and 30’s before being merged into its time-share partner WBIL Kearney, NJ. WBIL would eventually merge into WOV, which today operates as 1280 WADO New York.
Harry Hurley, who returned to host mornings on 1450 this summer will host mornings on the reconstitued “WPG“. The Press of Atlantic City reports the remainder of the lineup will feature Glenn Beck from 10am to 1pm, a local host to be named later from 1pm to 3pm, Sean Hannity from 3pm to 6pm, Mark Levin 6-9pm, John Batchelor 9pm-12am, and Red Eye Radio overnight.
