WYEP Celebrates 40 Years of Music and Community

On April 30th, 1974, WYEP signed onto the air from a studio in South Oakland. 40 years later, WYEP has grown to become an independent voice in the Pittsburgh community, providing diverse programming to more than 90,000 listeners a week. 

On January 1, 2014, 91.3 WYEP kicked off its 40th anniversary celebration. 

The kickoff revealed a new identity, created by strategic branding and marketing firm BD&E. The new logo takes the station's iconic 'dancer man' and tips him in celebration of the station's long-standing position in the Pittsburgh market. 

WYEP's anniversary celebration will be marked by a variety of events, including:

  • WYEP's Backstage Bash anniversary celebration 
  • The annual WYEP Holiday Hootenanny
  • And an ongoing broadcast of time capsules highlighting former hosts, stories and music celebrating 40 years of great music in Pittsburgh.  

  • As more information regarding WYEP's 40th Anniversary Celebration becomes available, it will be posted on this page. In the meantime, WYEP's General Manager, Abby Goldstein, and Program Director Kyle Smith are available for comment and interviews.
