Happi 92-7 HD becomes Erie’s third CHR
The stunting is done and the thumping bass line has begun.
Friday at noon WEHP/Lawrence Park-Erie became CHR Happi 92-7 HD. The launch song was Nicki Minaj’s “Va Va Voom,” followed by LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.” Erie Radio Company partner Rick Rambaldo told the Erie Times-News that Happi would be “Erie’s new No. 1 hit spot.”
The previously mentioned website Happi927.com is not functional at this point, but the station is promoting their Facebook page.
So here’s the format run-down on the commercial FM band in the Erie metro (not including translators):
- 1 – AC (WXKC-HD1)
- 1 – Adult Hits (WXBB)
- 2 – Country (WTWF, WXTA)
- 3 – CHR (WEHP, WRTS, WXKC-HD2)
- 2 – Christian (WCGM, WCTL)
- 2 – Classic Rock (WQHZ, WRKT)
Editor’s Note: Special Thanks to Chet LaPrice for sharing his recording of WEHP’s sign-on with the We rocked Erie in the 20th Century Facebook group.
