WPHY/Trenton FInds Religion Again

The other shoe drops in the LMA of NASSAU Religion WCHR-A/FLEMINGTON, NJ by ESPN, as NASSAU's Sports WPHY-A (ESPN 920)/TRENTON drops its Sports format to pick up the religious programming being dropped from WCHR's 1040 AM frequency. The move means the end of the local programming, targeted at PHILADELPHIA, aired on WPHY, since 1040 will be carrying a 100% simulcast of ESPN's WEPN-A (1050 ESPN)/NEW YORK.
The move is a return to the 920 AM frequency for WCHR, which aired on that station until SEPTEMBER 2002; for many years before that, WCHR aired on 94.5 FM on the frequency now occupied by sister Top 40 WPST.
