WNBP Radio Station

Since 1957 WNBP has been broadcasting to the greater Newburyport area.  Growing up this was the only station my parents listened to.  I believed it was the only station on the planet.  We always listened in the morning for snow cancellations- hoping the Nock Middle  School or the Belleville School would be closed.  Later as a business owner, I advertised on this radio station.  I’m glad WNBP is still going strong in Newburyport.  It’s a great station!

  1. Thanks for the mention and the memories. We’re still going strong and have recently relocated to downtown Newburyport in the Merrimac Landing building at 1 Merrimac Street. These days you can even listen to the station on-line at http://www.wnbp.com. And yes, we still carry the “no school” announcements in the morning!! Pete Falconi – owner/operations manager – WNBP

  2. How about a talk segment on WNBP that features Newburyport natives? The discussion format would probably have a good audience. Such a program could also call alot more attention to this website…

  4. In the 1984 phone book there is a listing for WCEA Radio Station 14 Inn St. Any info on this?

  5. The station actually was called WCEA for a while under one of the ownerships. It was upstairs at B & R Glass, then under the Bob Fuller ownership moved to 44 Merrimac Street, then under the Westport ownership moved to their facility in Beverly, now back to downtown Newburyport under the current ownership.

  8. John Evans that worked there was the all time greatest. He had such a amazing voice and loved his Sunday Serenade.
