WNPV (1440 AM) is a radio station owned by Four Rivers Community Broadcasting Corporation. and licensed to Lansdale, Pennsylvania, United States. It served Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia Counties, broadcasting a news/talk format until April 2020. Founded in 1960, WNPV featured a blend of nationally syndicated and local talk shows, plus Fox News Radio updates and local news throughout the day. WNPV also aired Philadelphia Phillies baseball games, NASCAR and IRL races, as well as Penn State Football games and local high school football contests.
In March 2020, general manager Phil Hunt announced that WNPV would cease broadcasting at the end of April. In a statement, he said, "In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult to compete for both audience and advertising dollars, and unfortunately it is no longer sustainable to continue to run the business in a way that delivers the service our community expects and deserves." The station sold off its studio and broadcast tower to a school district in July. Its license was donated to Four Rivers Community Broadcasting in October and it is expected to resume broadcasting later in 2021 airing Word FM programming.
