Sports Radio is born on 1050 AM WHN, which had been playing country music for 14 years and switched to an all-sports format at 3 pm. The first voice heard on the new 1050 WFAN was Suzyn Waldman, who gave a top-of-the-hour sports update ahead of the Jim Lampley show. A year later, WFAN would move over the 660 AM and, with the help of Don Imus, began proving to be a hugely successful format.
