Darryl Berger
Program Director / Show Host

Darryl joined the WNPV family in 1985 and served as News Director for 9 years before becoming the Program Director in the mid-90’s. He’s done news for and hosted the morning show for more than 21 years, but is perhaps best known as the host of ‘Comment Please by Univest’ which he has done since 1987. “The show isn’t a platform for me to forward my political or personal agenda,” says the usually affable host. “The program provides a daily slice of life for the folks who live in Montgomery and Bucks Counties.”Darryl Berger

Darryl has received dozens of broadcast awards for news, sports and talk programming from the Associated Press, Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters, Philadelphia Press Association and Society of Professional Journalists. He was named Consumer of the Year in 1998 by the Pennsylvania Association of Weights and Measures. Darryl also has received the regional award for public service from the Social Security Administration.

Darryl grew up in Pennsburg and graduated from Upper Perkiomen High School. He attended Drexel University and Montgomery County Community College prior to breaking into radio at a public station in Warminster. There he fell in love with broadcasting in 1981 and Vicki Bailey in 1983. Fortunately both remain in his life, on the radio at AM-1440 and with the now Vicki Berger in Coopersburg, Pa.

Originally from Indianapolis, Chuck hosted his first big band program in 1969 and worked as an announcer at Top-40 radio stations in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne and Muncie. He came to the Philadelphia-region in 1977 for stints at WIBG and WNAR, before joining the staff at WNPV. In addition to his afternoon-drive duties, Chuck is the host of "Echoes of an Era", Sunday nights from 6:20 to 10pm.
 
 

Chuck lives in historic Bucks County with his lovely wife Evelyn. Although now "empty nesters", they enjoy spending time with their seven kids and 11 grandchildren. When not at the radio station, you can find Chuck woodworking and record collecting. His other interests include antique radio receivers and playing Ragtime piano well into the wee hours of the morning - much to the delight (or chagrin) of his neighbors!
 

Dave McCrork
Engineer In Charge
 

davemcrork2.jpg

He is arguably the stations "MVP" -  chief engineer Dave McCrork, the man who keeps WNPV on the air and all its equipment running smoothly.

Dave is a Wissahickon graduate and has been in the industry for more than five decades, starting at the tender age of 11.  He  earned his diploma in Broadcast Engineering from the Cleveland Institute in 1967 while later obtaining an F.C.C. General Class Radiotelephone Operators License.

Dave has operated his own business since 1973. In addition to being the chief engineer at WNPV, he retains the same title at suburban  radio stations  WNAP and WISP, and WCOJ.

Dave's value to the radio station goes well beyond his mechanical abilities. Dave's sense of humor can brighten any-body's day! 

He and his wife Joanne live in Souderton.

Dave Ramsey

I have an unusual way of looking at the world. My wife, Sharon, says I'm weird and truthfully—I am weird. But there's a daveramseyreason. Starting from nothing, by the time I was 26 I had a net worth of a little over a million dollars. I was making $250,000 a year—that's more than $20,000 a month net taxable income. I was really having fun. But 98% truth is a lie, and that 2% can cause big problems, especially with $4 million in real estate. I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I'm the idiot who signed up for the trip.
After losing everything, I went on a quest to find out how money really works, how I could get control of it and how I could have confidence in handling it. I read everything I could get my hands on. I interviewed older rich people, people who made money and kept it. That quest led me to a really, really uncomfortable place: my mirror. I came to realize that my money problems, worries and shortages largely began and ended with the person in my mirror. I also realized that if I could learn to manage the character I shaved with every morning, I would win with money.

Dave Ramsey is new to WNPV radio and can be heard Monday-Friday from 3pm-5pm. Give Dave a try!
