Stanley Isenberg, WRTI's first station manager in 1948, visits WRTI

We were absolutely thrilled to have Stanley Isenberg, WRTI’s first student station manager way back at our start in 1948, visit us in October as part of our 75th anniversary celebration!

Stanley, who is 99 years young, shared many memories of his time at WRTI, met all of the WRTI family on-site that day, took a tour of our station with General Manager Bill Johnson, and was also interviewed by Temple University’s editorial team as well as WHIP Radio, the student-run radio station on Temple's campus. A full day!

Stanley was also kind enough to share his talents on the mic by recording some radio spots that are now on the air. Listen to one of his heartfelt messages in the audio button above!

Thank you for visiting us, Stanley! It was just amazing to have you back at WRTI.

During WRTI's Winter Member Drive, join Stanley in celebrating our 75th anniversary — contribute now and join our family of supporters who ensure that this vitally important public media station continues to serve our community for decades to come. Thanks so much!
