WCHE 1520AM is a commercial radio station located in West Chester, Pennsylvania, broadcasting to the western suburbs of the Philadelphia, PA area on 1520 AM. WCHE broadcasts and streams over the internet a variety of talk shows, and a mix of hits from the 1950s and 1960s.
Purchased in 1997 by Jay and David Shur, WCHE is licensed as a daytimer AM, permitted to transmit from sunrise to sunset. This requires the station to be off the air during the nighttime hours because it interferes with the same frequency as clear-channel station WWKB in Buffalo, New York.
Currently, "The Morning Magazine" airs weekdays 7-10AM and is hosted by Bill Mason, Heather Bird, Mary Lou Doyle, Dr. Lauren Schofield and Doug Stirling. 10-12AM is "Ron's Swap Shop" hosted by Ron McNeil, where people from around Chester County call in radio classifieds.
Other programming includes "The Sports Chatter" with Bill Werndl, "Eat, Drink & Meet Mary" with Mary Bingham, Passionate about Pets" with Rich Britton, "The Avid Reader" with Sam Hankin, "Soundstage" with Nicole Zell and "World's Finest" with Kyle Hudson & Doug Keller.
