WGLD (1440 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports talk format. Licensed to Manchester Township, Pennsylvania, USA, the station is currently owned by Susquehanna License Co., LLC and is currently broadcasting ESPN Radio.
WGLD was originally known as WGCB AM, and was owned by John Harden Norris, who founded the station in 1950. In 1964, Norris went on a 15 minute diatribe against journalist Fred Cook. Cook, under Fairness Doctrine rules, requested a chance to rebut, and Norris refused, claiming the doctrine to be unconstitutional. A lawsuit ensued, which Cook ultimately won.
The WGLD call signs were previously heard at 104.5 FM in Indianapolis (now WJJK) and at 100.3 FM in Greensboro (now WVBZ). It was also in Chicago on 102.7 FM (oldies) during the early seventies. It was called W-Gold Oak Park - Chicago, and it was managed by Charles Manson for Saunderling Broadcasting. This station became WBMX.
