Program Director / Show Host
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.
Randy Brock has been WNPV's news director since March of 2000. He previously worked part-time for the station from 1990-92.
He has been in the radio business since 1961, when he was still in high school. He graduated that year from Jamestown High School in New York and graduated from Temple University with a degree in Secondary English Education. He was already in the broadcasting business, and decided that he liked radio stations better than classrooms.
After leaving his hometown, he worked for radio stations in Buffalo, Syracuse, Boston, Denver, Hartford and Philadelphia. The Philadelphia stations included WFIL and WIBG in the 1970s and WPEN and WWDB in the 1980s and 90s.
He has also written more than 500 freelance newspaper stories and a handful of magazine stories over the years.
At WNPV he anchors the early-morning "AM Edition" local newscasts, then develops new stories later in the day. He attends most Montgomery County Commissioners meetings, as well as various other meetings and news conferences. He also goes to historic re-enactments and other local community events, mostly on weekends, and runs stories about them on Monday morning.
He has brought home several awards for the station, including "Best Regularly Scheduled Newscast" awards for six consecutive years.

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!
A college professor once told me “You want to get in the business, well, you better get ready live on a lot of hard rolls and butter.” There’s a lot of truth in that statement. I think that’s the general rule if you plan to pursue a career in the field of entertainment, but when you love it, that’s all that matters. I started my career in 1983 in Scranton, Pa at a station very similar to WNPV. I’ve always gravitated toward full-service radio stations that provide listeners with all the information they need, particularly in a local sense. While I have enjoyed these opportunities, I’ve also worked in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Trenton and Wilmington, Delaware, performing duties as a news director, news anchor, reporter and disc jockey. WNPV has allowed me to further stretch my creative pursuits as a production assistant and producer. You can hear me Monday Through Thursday at 11:05am and 12:05pm as I bring you up-to-date with weather and other information.

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.
