Sharpless says on Facebook that he was forced out
Sheldon Sharpless, longtime WPHB radio personality and former owner of the Philipsburg based AM station, has left his post as the host of the radio station's morning broadcast.
So Sharpless was there one morning, his on-air personality as large and lively as the tall, white-haired Sandy Ridge resident is in person, and gone the next.
Six years later, Sharpless arrived on the airwaves and had a hand in changing the format to classic country. The station became a staple in the Philipsburg community, and was purchased by Sharpless and his brother, Dean, in 1982.
Sharpless, now in his early 70s, had an almost open-door policy on his microphone.
