History of the 100.1 frequency[edit]

100.1 was previously held by WPRR, which was also a CHR formatted station from 1986 until the call letter change to WWOT on March 15, 2005. Prior to the format change in 1986, WPRR had been formatted as AOR since 1980, and prior to 1980 it had been WVAM-FM, an automated, Drake-Chenault, Top 40 station. One of its most popular features in the 1990s was the morning show with Tommy Edwards and Danice Bell, which aired every weekday. Other popular personalities to pass through WPPR during the 1980s and 1990s were Scott St. John, Dave McCall, Steve Hilton, Bob McCarty, J.B. Savage, Chad Bender, Jim Hatch, Darrell Ray, Hollywood John Harlow and Rich Dennis.

Conflict with 100.1 in Romney, West Virginia[edit]

As one travels southbound on Interstate 99 towards Bedford, Pennsylvania, WWOT's signal will start to conflict with WVMD in Romney, West Virginia, a Country station .[citation needed] Romney is located near the intersection of US 220, US 50 and West Virginia Route 28.

Temperature inversions can cause FM signals to travel farther, but the two stations are operating within Federal Communications Commission guidelines.[2]
