WPEN Cranks Power at Night

Greater Media's WPEN(AM) serving the Philly area said it has begun broadcasting from a new nighttime RF site in East Norriton, Pa. An increase in power to 21 kW from 5 kW and a move to the west and north means a lot more people will now be able to hear the station at night.
VP of Engineering Milford Smith called the power hike "one of the more significant nighttime AM facility improvements made in a top 10 market in recent years." He thinks listeners will note the improved signal immediately.
The hike comes as the station is switching formats to Sports Talk 950.
