Listen every Saturday morning 7-8. We are TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS as we spotlight the fine "area" businesses and get to meet the fine area businessmen and businesswomen who provide such great products and services to us here in Central Pennsylvania....and alot of times....maybe some services and products you may not be aware of or know are available here in our area.
It is our mission to support our local businesses because nowhere will you get better value and customer service than with a locally owned and operated business.
"We're Takin Care of Business".....Saturday mornings on WHP Talk Radio 580
I have lived in Central PA since the early 80's. I grew up outside of Uniontown, PA in the southwestern part of the state in a VERY small coal mining town. Worked on the farm, in the mines, drove truck and worked hard. Went to college at West Virginia University from 1975-79. Was offered my first radio job at WAJR/WVAQ in Morgantown, WV right out of school. In fact, I picked up my diploma Sunday afternoon at 2PM and started that day on the air at 4PM.
I moved to Harrisburg and Central PA in 1984 to get out of radio, but ended up being offered a job at WKBO and then Sunny 99. I was very fortunate in meeting Kathi Wise (Homecoming Queen-CD East 1978) when we worked together at 99.3 FM in the late 80's and we were married in October of 1992. Our first son Jordan was born in October of 1993. Our second son Matthew was born in September of 1997. We have lived in the Linglestown area at the base of the mountain since 97 and are blessed to have WONDERFUL neighbors and friends who we enjoy our spare time with.
We have quite a menagerie. A gorgeous black lab named Casey, a FAT cat named Ramsey and also Sabrina...a white cat we rescued from a shelter who we later found out cannot hear.
I love the area and am proud to call it home. But still a proud supporter of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers and Penguins....and of course the WVU Mountaineers.
Along with my on air work Saturday mornings on WHP, I am the full time Creative Director for the 5 Clear Channel-Harrisburg radio stations. I write and produce many of the commercials you hear. I am also the voice on commercials you hear on other area radio stations and on local TV.
I also "produce" other radio programs including Let's Talk Travel With Sandy Fenton and The Old Barn Hockey Show and Legends Of Success with John Resnick which is broadcast nationwide.
I live by the motto of FAITH & STRENGTH. I am blessed to have a job and career that I love. I enjoy coming to work every single day. I love life and love to laugh. And I will always greet you with a smile.
7-7:30 COLON CANCER & COLON SCREENING WITH PINNACLE HEALTH

We'll talk about the test, why it really is not as bad as we think. But even more important is that by having these tests and screenings, it provides the doctors with the ability to see if there is a problem.....fix it....and if cancer is detected, the success rate is SO much higher than if you waited and did nothing.

7-7:30 HomeRite Windows & Doors
Let us introduce you to a great local business that is out to change the public perception of remodeling contractors. HomeRite offers alot of the products that are offered by others in the area, but what sets them apart is how they treat their customers.
Andy Matter started out as a window salesman, and learned alot. He also learned how NOT to do it. But he loved the industry, loved selling the product, loved helping customers, and he wanted to give back to his local community. So he started his own home remodeling business that would not only be different but better. He wanted to help those in his community and also give back to it.
Hear how HomeRite treats their customers. How they don't pressure them into buying something they don't need or want. Hear about their beautiful showroom and relaxed atmosphere that makes shopping easy and fun. Hear about how he offers a quality product at a great price and then takes care of you after the sale with a LIFETIME warranty on the product....the labor...and service.
And if he doesn't convince you, we invited a client in to tell you what Andy and HomeRite did for his home. Glenn Hamilton from The River had HomeRite put new siding on his home and he'll describe in detail the before and after. You gotta see thse photos. Glenn's Extreme HomeRite Makeover
