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.
High Island, NY
site of WFAN (660) and WCBS (880)
WFAN was arguably the first all sports station in the US.
