We are no longer able to get reception for family radio - we are outside if Philadelphia in the suburbs. Did the radio go off the air? My father has been listening daily to the hymns and misses it greatly. Let us know if this is temporary or permanent?

Is the station itself still broadcasting?

It is sinful to preach a lie.You cannot know the end of the world only God can know this.Harold is a false prophet and are misleading so many people.Harold,I truly pray that you become saved.If you are truly saved you don't have to hope God will save me you already know that you are.
By: adrienne on May 18, 2011
I URGE ALL LISTENERS NOT TO BELIEVE WHAT THIS STATION IS SAYING ABOUT THE END.IT IS SINFUL TO EVEN TO PREDICT ONLY WHAT GOD ALONE CAN PREDICT AND HAROLD NEEDS TO BEG GOD FOR FORGIVENESS.CERTAINLY,THOSE WHO ARE REMOTELY INTERESTED IN THE GOSPEL WILL BE TURNED AWAY BY THESE FALSE PREDICTIONS.THE BIBLE SPEAKS HEAVILY ABOUT FALSE PROPHETS.AGAIN,HAROLD PRAY FOR TRUE SALVATION.IF YOU ARE SAVED THEIR IS NO QUESTION YOU ARE NOT A SO CALLED ELECT CHOSEN ONE..

Is Harold Camping a Freemason? A comment made today by Edwin Ramos, a Vineland, NJ Camping disciple to a group of Philadelphia school students stated that "the Son" of which Jesus spoke in Mt. 24:36 referred to Satan, and not Jesus Himself. Masonic doctrine teaches that Jesus and Lucifer were angelic "brothers," and that God the Father showed favoritism to Jesus. Thank the Father, however, that the issue is fully clarified in Hebrews, were the true Christian reads, "For to which of the angels did He ever say, 'THOU ART MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN THEE?'" (Hebrews 1:5 NASB).

well,today is may 21 1:30 pm and i am not hearing of any massive earthquakes throughout the world or any believers being raptured.However, that doesnt mean its not gonna happen or the bible is wrong.God will end this world because man is very wicked and rebellious before the eyes of God.and look at the way the world is responding to this wonderful but horrible news.you would think the whole world would be crying out to almighty God for mercy,but thats not happening at all.instead the world and the media is scoffing and ridiculing the idea that God will bring this world to an end.but this doesnt changes anything,its going to happen.I dont trust Harold Camping,I trust the bible,and the bible is true and trust worthy.

End of the world? What a joke.
By: Steve on May 21, 2011
The comment on Masonic doctrine is incorrect.
Freemasonry is not a religion, and does nit interfere with Anyones faith. Freemasonry does huge amounts of charitable work. The reason that most churches hate freemasonry

The reason that most churches hate freemasonry is that the organization
Diverts funds that would otherwise go into their own coffers. We eat well after meetings,
But we don't eat babies.

I would appreciate knowing when Mr. Camping plans on speaking to shall I say, "the world". I heard of many folks selling all they had and living on little while spreading the leftovers over time to reach only until May 21. I just wonder if Mr. Camping did the same or does he still have property, accounts, cash and such that he and his may fall back on. It is so sad for those such as children that had no choice in the matter that are affected by his false teaching. For those mockers and scoffers...He the Lord is going to some day carry out the Blessed Hope" (rapture) of His own choosing, no one knows when, but all true believers know He will. I hope Mr. Camping seeks and receives God's forgiveness.
By: Randy on May 23, 2011
Ok, everyone makes mistakes, I've made many that I need God's grace for. As leaders who teach Scripture we are accountable to the body for what we teach and need to be corrected when we err. Where are you Mr. Camping? I've heard you since 1984 and have appreciated your ministry for years. But now it's time to step up to the plate, confess what was in error and move on. So sad for people who sold their things now what will they do?
By: Mike Zettlemoyer on May 23, 2011
So, where is Harold Camping now? Hopefully, in a pup-tent somewhere in the Sierra Nevada counting his $117,000,000; but without his bible and microphone.

So if Merlin buys it to try their news format there... hmmmmm. Why just suck in New York and Chicago when you can also suck i Philadelphia. You give us 22 minutes, we'll give you twists reading a lot of low budget access Hollywood style crap.
By: Joe Mama on February 29, 2012
I just heard that effective April 16,2012 that Family Radio will no longer be heard in Philadelphia, Pa. and in Camden, NJ. This was a terrible shock. I listen to Family Radio faithfully everyday especially while driving. It's the only station that I will listen to. We need Family Radio here in this area especially with all the terrible things happening in the world today. Please pray with me that this situation can by some means be revolved. God bless.
By: Florence James on April 8, 2012
Im praying that you dont take Family Radio off the Radio station we need this station ive enjoyed listing to it for many years.it will be sad not to here it on the radio.What can us listners do to keep it on the radio? God Bless You.
By: Kermit Loch on April 8, 2012
Sad that Family Radio will no longer be heard in the Philly area. I've been listening since I was a child. I won't miss hearing Harold Camping but I will miss the music and bible reading.
By: Diana on April 10, 2012
I will miss this channel greatly. I will NOT miss Harold Camping, however! I will miss the Radio Reading Circle the most as I enjoyed listening to the true stories as told by Ian Taylor.
By: Paul E Young on April 15, 2012
This kind of radio is the biggest and worst kind of scam on earth. All over the Philly el were signs for have you prayed today where you'd get an $82 bus pass if you gave them at least an $100 donation. I lived next door in the badlands to a fool who was having an online radio show out of his room. He had a mentally disabled homeless guy preaching and of course he wasn't paid, the the show guy was. What was even worse was people all over the city dignified this guy's preaching and talking about the son of Zeus. GOOD RIDDANCE!
By: Sasha El on April 24, 2012
I am enjoying the talk radio and being able to listen to Glenn Beck and Hannity. It would be perfect if Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin could be added to the line-up. Monica Crowley wouldn't be bad either.
Looking forward to what is coming on this new station.
By: judith guillermin on May 23, 2012
Thank you for lining up Glenn Beck and Hannity! I will be listening.
By: lynn on May 23, 2012
Jim Hilgen must be screaming each evening. He is a liberal and not in touch with Hannity, Beck, and other conservatives. What one will do for employment? Oh, I know, little Jimmy found the church and has taken a turn to the truth. Jimmy does not know the truth.
By: pammie on May 29, 2012
happy to see that i can get beck and hannity in philly again. i have been getting them on hard to receive stations in nearbymarkets. were your call letters used to be wwsh at one time? if so, i was the genl. sales manager back in 1974. i'm now 85, so my memory is interesting. i went from there to the radio advertising bureau in new york as vp of research. good luck
By: Lew Greist on June 1, 2012
Referring to my e-mail of june 1st, I read your info on WIKIPEDIA and realized why 106.9 was so familiar. In the 1960's I came to WKDN upon leaving The Katz Agency in NY. For the first 3 months, I lived in the apartment in the old station building M-F and went up to my home in
Princeton on weekends. I had just gotten up from a nap when we broadcasted JFK's assassination. From my job as GSM at WKDN, went on to WCAU as Nat'l. Sales Mgr., then to KYW as Dir. of Research., then WWSH as GSM, before returning to NY as VP Research at The Radio Advertsing Bureau. So as a retired old radio fart since 1984, I am delighted to hear my favorite radio programming, static free. Keep up the good work. Incidentally,I live in southeastern PA about 10 miles from the Delaware & Maryland borders.

FINALLY, Conservative Talk Radio on the FM dial. Thank you for the new format! I tried to send the station an email but was having problems.
It's good to hear Glenn crystal clear.
By: Steve AK. on June 13, 2012
I am thrilled to find conservative talk on Phila radio fm. It comes in very clear. Awesome!
By: kathy lutz on July 6, 2012
Great Job!!! I love Beck,Rush and Hannity. My radios are now set to 106.9FM.
By: chuck s on July 23, 2012
Thanks for bringing conservative talk radio back to the Philadelphia area market. I used to listen to 1210 but not anymore!!!
By: Jeff M on August 8, 2012
Used to listen to 1210. I keep my dial tuned to 106.9.
By: Irene on September 3, 2012
why on earth have you chopped one hour off of the Glenn Beck Show?!?!? Please give us back the first hour and let us listen to the whole program. This does not make us as listeners happy. I used to listen to 1210 when they carried Beck, Limbaugh, etc., and dropped them when they went local. Larry Mente is NOT Glenn Beck.
By: D England on October 1, 2012
Where is the first hour of Glenn Beck???? Will switch to the Reading station to hear him if you chop it off or will move to 1210 to hear Dom G. Either way won't listen to your station from 9-10!!!
By: Lynn on October 1, 2012
Where's Glenn Beck's 1'st hour? Went out of town & came back to this. Back to Dom G.
By: Patty on October 3, 2012
Get Glenn Beck back at 9 AM. If not will move to Reading until Limbaugh
By: Ray on October 8, 2012
I am sooo happy to listen to the new format and here familiar voices, God Bless and thank you
By: steve K on October 10, 2012
Thanks for the line up. It is so good to be able to listen to IQ with Glen, Rush and Hennity here in the Del Valley
Why are there so many talk overs, dead air and lost of signal Why is the traffic not in sync. ex. Helicopter crash on 2nd day referring to the crash as happining on the 2nd day.
By: Ron K on October 19, 2012
Please get Glenn back 9-12:00. Lionel drives me crazy! Much better to have Larry M. on until 9a.m. So as of now I will listen to 1210 from 6-10:00.
By: Lynn on October 29, 2012
Where is Larry?

WHERE IS LIONEL? WHY IS HE REPLACED WITH IMMUS?

Poor reception in Montgomery Co. just outside of Phila. Would love to be able to listen when working outdoors.2891
By: joan gemmill on August 14, 2013
Tuned in today, Aug. 20th only to find no programming on the station. What happened? Miss Michael Savage. He is the most informative talk show host on the radio today and, as far as I am concerned, the best and most entertaining host in any medium. Please bring back IOQ and increase Michael's show to a full 3 hours. Thank you.
By: Barbara on August 21, 2013
Heard Dave Ramsey is on this station. Can anyone tell me what time I can hear him? thanks
By: Joe Tomlinson on August 30, 2013
I just recently moved to this area from new York city and I think that WWIQ106.9FM is teriffic! I love it! It is my favorite radio station and I listen to it all the time. It is the only radio station I want to listen to. However I think the radio station could improve its programming content even more if it added AARON KLINE on Sunday nights.
When I lived in new York city I listened to www.77wabc on the AM dial. Mister Kline's perspevtive on the war against terrorism is invaluable! And so therefore I think WWIQ should add him to the sunday night lineup. Thank you for your attention in this matter. Have a nice day!
By: charles smith on October 3, 2013
This Philly loves Aaron Kline.
I agree with the previous
post - he would be a great
addition to the WWIQ line up,
as would Benjamin Korn - a local
guy who used to be on WNTP on
Thank you for a wonderful station.
We really miss Lionel in the morning
and would really prefer a local show

Did you cancel Rush?

Why did you remove limbaugh from his spot.
By: Donna on October 29, 2013
What happened to my conseritive talk station? The station is back to broadcasting Christian music.
By: Rick McClelland on November 5, 2013
No Rush? No Sean? No Glenn? AND NO MARK LEVIN!!!???
No Bill. I quit this station. Positive that.
For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.

By: Bill on November 5, 2013

By: bernice on November 7, 2013
What happened to the news talk radio show that was on 106.9 all night long? I thought I found the most wonderful talk radio show only to find out it has totally disappeared! What is going on?
By: Peggy Keown on November 7, 2013
What happened?? Listened everyday!! My husband & I miss them; Beck, Rush, Hannity, Levine & Savage.
