Let's Get Out There and Wrestle!
Thursday, March 1st, at WJPA Radio, just hours before Mark Uriah & Greg Warnock started their coverage of the WPIAL AAA Wrestling Championships, we quietly marked our 70th anniversary. We did that rather quietly, not with a lot of chest-pounding or other hoopla and fanfare, rather by doing what we've been doing since the station went on the air at 3 pm, March 1, 1942--broadcasting into people's homes, cars, offices, and now computers and smartphones, the things happening at home and across the country. We've been providing news and information, sports and entertainment for nearly as long as the PIAA has conducted these wrestling championships. And, for nearly 60 years, the nation's very best wrestling has been heard, start to finish, on the airwaves of WJPA Radio.

As has been the case for more nearly two decades now, all of our coverage--WPIAL & PIAA, Team & Individual--has been available on-air and on-line, thanks to our partnerships with the MSA Sports Network, EZ-Stream and the PIAA. Over the years, WJPA has been trusted by listeners to bring home the action of the Pennsylvania's best wrestling. We've been true to that trust in the past and we have no plans of letting you down now. We hope you'll check back often as we move through the 75th PIAA Tournament this week.

Our award-winning broadcast crew will bring home the action, starting with move-by-move descriptions of the Washington/Green County wrestlers (our hometown kids), then turn an eye to the rest of the WPIAL and, as opportunities allow, the other bouts going on. While many things have changed since that March afternoon back in 1942, one thing that hasn't is that our crew will still give you every score of every bout all weekend long. Enjoy the action!
