WGLD (1440 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a sports talk format. Licensed to Manchester Township, Pennsylvania, USA, the station is owned by Cumulus Media, Inc., through licensee Radio License Holding SRC LLC, and is broadcasting ESPN Radio.
WGLD began 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 won.
The WGLD call signs used to be heard at 104.5 FM in Indianapolis (now WJJK) and at 100.3 FM in Greensboro (now WMKS). It was also in Chicago on 102.7 FM (oldies) during the early 1970s. It was called W-Gold Oak Park - Chicago, and it was managed by Charles Manson for Sonderling Broadcasting. This station became WBMX.
