WPXZ-FM 1041

WPXZ logoWPXZ in Punxsutawney, PA, first got its start with the Light Up A Child's Life® campaign in December of 1992. It is the sister station to WISH in Pittsburgh and under the direction of the station manager at the time, Chris Lash, and a local Punxswutawney doctor Joe Kernich, the campaign began. Because of the wonderful supporters in the area, the Make-A-Wish® Punxsutawney regional office was then formed. In 1992, the campaign raised approximately $11,000 and now raises approximately $75,000 each year.
