Today is the final day of WWRL 1600 AM, which was on air for 86 years. If you have not heard, the station will become Spanish-speaking with music and talk as of tomorrow. WWRL was home to legendary disc jockeys like Frankie Crocker, Carlton King Coleman, Herb Hamlet and others. In later years, Mark Riley, Ed Schultz and Reverend Al Sharpton lent their voices to the iconic station.
I am happy to say I was a member of the WWRL 1600 AM family — over two years and 97 episodes. Special thanks to radio veteran John Campanario for giving me my break in radio. Also, big thanks to all of the co-hosts who graced the airwaves over the two years from Damion West to Mark Corece (pictured above) and especially J’Nara Corbin (pictured above), who was with the show from episode one on November 3, 2011. It was a great run!
