WPOP Drops Sports Format

iHeartMedia Sports has flipped WPOP-AM (Fox Sports Radio 1410) in Hartford to News-Talk 1410 WPOP.

The station is simulcasting sister News-Talk WELI-AM New Haven’s morning show “The Vinnie Penn Project” 6-10a and airing the regionally-distributed “The Financial Exchange” 10a-noon, Bloomberg Radio 12p-3p, Howie Carr’s Boston-based syndicated afternoon show 3-6p. Westwood One’s Mark Levin 6-9p, and Premiere Networks’ “America Now with Meghan McCain” 9p-midnight.

“It’s been almost 18-years since the all-news format was heard on WPOP 1410AM,” said Regional Market President Steve Honeycomb. “We’re excited to bring back News Radio 1410 WPOP, an iconic brand and station focused on News, Traffic and Weather to serve the Hartford community in the iHeartMedia line-up.”
