WFAN - Station Tour
by Barry Mishkind

WFAN in New York has two sets of roots in radio history: WEAF, the AT&T station, and WHN (1050). It was in 1987 that WHN changed its calls to WFAN, the format to sports-talk and then moved down the dial to 660.

Located on a small island NE of Manhattan, WFAN shares a tower with WCBS. Both companies are now owned by CBS/Infinity.

WFAN was arguably the first all sports station in the US.
