WPRP (910 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a News radio format. Licensed to Ponce, Puerto Rico, the station serves the Puerto Rico area. The station is currently owned by Arso Radio Corporation.[2]

History[edit]

The station was the first one to operate in southern Puerto Rico.[3] It was owned and operated by Julio S. Conesa, an electrical engineer who designed and built the radio station's equipment himself. Its building, still standing on PR-2, was the first radio station building in Puerto Rico to be built specifically for that purpose.[4]
