WNPV began its regular broadcasting schedule on October 17, 1960. The main focus of the station was, and continues to be, delivering pertinent information to Montgomery and Bucks County residents.
Leroy Nuss was hired to be the Chief Engineer and was largely responsible for designing the broadcast facility on Snyder Road that continues to serve AM-1440. While Nuss took care of the technical side of getting WNPV up and running, Richard Heist was hired from WPAZ radio in Pottstown to be the station’s first Program Director.
The station’s future owner, John Skibbe, who was the head of circulation for the Equitable owned Reporter Newspaper, was appointed WNPV’s Business Manager. The first line up of radio personalities included Heist’s Sunrise Serenade, Bob Allen during the midday and Stu Montgomery on during the afternoon drive. Bob Fretz who was with the Reporter, but had previous broadcast experience on WBUX in Doylestown was the station’s first News Director.
