WPHE at 690 AM in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, U.S. is known as Radio Salvación (Salvation Radio), a Spanish Christian Religion station. Before it was acquired by the Radio Salvación corporation, it was WYIS Radio 7. Radio 7 was divided in Revista Radio Cultural with its main show Tiempo Latino in the mornings and Summer evenings, produced and hosted by Frantz Santiago-Peretz and Radio Nuevo Horizonte Spanish religious block in the afternoons led by Rev. Jose Rivera. Frantz is currently the Lead Pastor of Hopewell Mennonite Church in Reading, PA. The team included Aixa Torregrosa, Rev. Jose Castro, and many other well-known radio personalities. In 1988 the station was sold by its owner, Dr. B. Sam Hart, to Rev. Sarrail Salva. Mr. Salva was a well-known religious radio announcer in Radio Redentor of Utuado and Radio Felicidad of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico. WYIS was a radio station with diversity in its programming, including almost a whole day in Portuguese and programs in English, Greek and Hebrew. Today WPHE is exclusively a Pentecostal radio station, although its leaders were affiliated with the Lancaster Conference of the Mennonite Church U.S.A.. They broke from the Conference to form Koinonia, an Anabaptist association of churches in Philadelphia. Rev. Salva and Evangelist Juan Carlos Izquierdo are well respected leaders in Philadelphia.
