The overhauled WTOP app seems to run much smoother as far as reading news is concerned, however listening to the audio stream doesn't work half the time, and then there are the notifications! As soon as the overhauled version released, now the app sends multiple political notifications throughout the day, every day, and there is no way to adjust or disable this outside of blocking the app from notifications in iOS! Thr only setting available in Settings is your weather location... this app seems half baked. The web News side has been fixed, but everything else is really poor.

The Post sold WTOP to The Outlet Company in June 1978, in reaction to the FCC looking askance at common ownership of newspapers and broadcasting outlets in the same city, believing one company should not have too much control of local media. One month later, WTOP-TV was swapped with the Detroit News's WWJ-TV, and became WDVM-TV. The station is today WUSA-TV, owned by Tegna. The original FM frequency for WTOP-FM was 96.3 MHz, but that frequency was donated to Howard University. That station became WHUR in 1971, a commercially run radio station.

After its signature personality Arthur Godfrey left WTOP in 1948 to concentrate on his television and midday network radio shows, the station gradually faded in popularity as it faced competition from the Washington Star's WMAL with the morning team of Harden and Weaver, and NBC-owned WRC which featured future Today Show personality Willard Scott. In the 1960s, after a series of failed music formats, WTOP phased out its music programming for a combination of newscasts and phone-in talk shows. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
