Program Director / Show Host
Darryl joined the WNPV family in 1985 and served as News Director for 9 years before becoming the Program Director in the mid-90’s. He’s done news for and hosted the morning show for more than 21 years, but is perhaps best known as the host of ‘Comment Please by Univest’ which he has done since 1987. “The show isn’t a platform for me to forward my political or personal agenda,” says the usually affable host. “The program provides a daily slice of life for the folks who live in Montgomery and Bucks Counties.”
Darryl has received dozens of broadcast awards for news, sports and talk programming from the Associated Press, Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters, Philadelphia Press Association and Society of Professional Journalists. He was named Consumer of the Year in 1998 by the Pennsylvania Association of Weights and Measures. Darryl also has received the regional award for public service from the Social Security Administration.
Darryl grew up in Pennsburg and graduated from Upper Perkiomen High School. He attended Drexel University and Montgomery County Community College prior to breaking into radio at a public station in Warminster. There he fell in love with broadcasting in 1981 and Vicki Bailey in 1983. Fortunately both remain in his life, on the radio at AM-1440 and with the now Vicki Berger in Coopersburg, Pa.
Born and raised in Lansdale, PA, Phil began his broadcasting careeras a part-time disc jockey in 1977. Since that time he has held a variety of positions at WNPV, including account executive, sports director, and program director. He has been the General Manager of WNPV since 1986.
Phil is an active board member of the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters and currently serves as Vice Chairman for Radio Broadcasting. He is active in many community organizations including his church, the North Penn United Way, and Rotary International.

He enjoys playing golf, traveling, and the company of family and friends. He's also an avid John Wayne fan.

Show Host / Director of Public Service Annoucements
Originally from Indianapolis, Chuck hosted his first big band program in 1969 and worked as an announcer at Top-40 radio stations in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne and Muncie. He came to the Philadelphia-region in 1977 for stints at WIBG and WNAR, before joining the staff at WNPV. In addition to his afternoon-drive duties, Chuck is the host of "Echoes of an Era", Sunday nights from 6:20 to 10pm.
Chuck lives in historic Bucks County with his lovely wife Evelyn. Although now "empty nesters", they enjoy spending time with their seven kids and 5 grandchildren. When not at the radio station, you can find Chuck woodworking and record collecting. His other interests include antique radio receivers and playing Ragtime music well into the wee hours of the morning - much to the delight (or chagrin) of his neighbors!
Engineer In Charge
He is arguably the stations "MVP" - chief engineer Dave McCrork, the man who keeps WNPV on the air and all its equipment running smoothly.
Dave is a Wissahickon graduate and has been in the industry for more than five decades, starting at the tender age of 11. He earned his diploma in Broadcast Engineering from the Cleveland Institute in 1967 while later obtaining an F.C.C. General Class Radiotelephone Operators License.
Dave has operated his own business since 1973. In addition to being the chief engineer at WNPV, he retains the same title at suburban radio stations WNAP and WISP, and WCOJ.
Dave's value to the radio station goes well beyond his mechanical abilities. Dave's sense of humor can brighten any-body's day!
He and his wife Joanne live in Souderton.
