RIP 97.9 In The
A Few Words About Us
Welcome to "Rip
97.9" - since August 1999, Community Radio "From the Catskills To
The Capital Region."
Now also heard
at 104.5 in Stamford, and 97.5 in the Hudson Valley.
Founded in August 1999 by Chairman Dennis Jackson, and by Guy
Patrick Garraghan, a native son of Windham, New York, WRIP grew and
flourished under Garraghan's guidance for eleven years. His untimely
passing in November 2010 left a void in the Mountaintop community.
Guy will always be fondly remembered by those who knew him - and
missed by the thousands who awoke to his voice every morning.
Under the continued leadership of Jay Fink, Vice President and
General Manager and a ten year station veteran, WRIP has tapped the
talents of another broadcaster - long recognized for his community
leadership and integrity - from our sister station, WQQQ in
northwest Connecticut. Joe Loverro joined WRIP as Morning Show host
and Operations Manager in May 2011. Together with a passionate and
dedicated staff, the future looks bright as a new chapter unfolds
for WRIP, thanks to the continued support of our many fans and
