Philadelphia radio station WYSP 94.1 FM announced that the station's rock format will be signing off and be replaced by the staff and content currently on sister sports talk station WIP 610 AM.

Howard Stern, the popular Sirius/XM satellite personality and former WYSP morning show host told his listeners that 'YSP couldn't survive after his radio show moved away from free radio to satellite radio.

WYSP became the highest-rated FM station in Philadelphia when Stern added Philadelphia as his first syndicated affiliate. Stern was on WYSP until 2006 when he moved to Sirius Satellite Radio. Since his departure, WYSP has dropped in ratings. Current WYSP morning host Danny Bonaduce finished 18th in the Arbitron ratings.

With the departure of WYSP, rock radio listeners in Philadelphia have one less choice on the FM dial. More listening choices for music stations are now available on internet radio.

iRadioPhilly.com has 18 commercial free music stations, and is welcomings any and all rock listeners to enjoy the list of station choices. For Rock listeners, there are several choices on iRadioPhilly.com:

Eleven: Pure Rock
Ziggy: Classic Rock
Skin: Alternative Rock

Bellbottoms: 70s Pop/Rock
Eightball: 80s Pop/Rock
Libra: Progressive Rock
