March 24, 2015


Greater Media’s radio properties have been named among the Top Workplaces in Philadelphia for the fourth consecutive year in a survey sponsored by Philly.com. Hundreds of companies take part in the survey, but only a select few companies are awarded top workplace.

Greater Media Philadelphia owns and operates four radio stations in the area, including WMMR-FM, WMGK-FM, WBEN-FM and WPEN-FM. The radio stations entertain over two million listeners each week.

“Great companies start with great employees,” said John Fullam, vice president and market manager of Greater Media Philadelphia. “We are fortunate to have such an extraordinary team dedicated to serving Philadelphia, our listeners and advertising partners everyday.”

The evaluation for the “Top Workplaces” program was based entirely upon feedback from an employee survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics in the fall of 2014.

The special “Top Workplace edition” features employee nominated companies which honor those companies who are getting it right and distinguishes them from other companies.
