A Happy Howard Stern Profiled in Billboard Magazine
It can be said that Philadelphia played a large part in the success of radio jock Howard Stern. It was back in 1986 that 94 WYSP decided to bring in Stern's morning show from New York to the Philly's airwaves. Some say Philadelphia would not listen to an import especially from New York City.
Stern was more than ready for the challenge as he unseated John DeBella and WMMR in the ratings race for the number one morning show in Philly. Soon after Stern was added to WJFK in Washington, DC and the rest as they say was history. WYSP has never been the same station since Howard Stern left the station. WYSP is now Sports Radio WIP.
