WEPM is a News/Talk/Sports formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Martinsburg, West Virginia, serving Martinsburg and Berkeley County, West Virginia. WEPM is owned and operated by Prettyman Broadcasting Company.
Owner C. Leslie Golliday, a prominent Martinsburg businessman, envisioned a group of stations in the state, and his early announcers used the tag line, "This is the Mountaineer station for the Eastern Panhandle," thus the call sign there of WEPM. Another suggested meaning for EPM is "Eastern Panhandle, Martinsburg."
Golliday also owned WCLG-AM in Morgantown, WV which carried a similar tag line, "This is the Mountaineer station for northern West Virginia."
Golliday died in late June, 2007 at the age of 92.
