WKRP in Cincinnati

Set in a struggling fictional radio station in Cincinnati, Ohio, WKRP in Cincinnati centers around the staff of the station as they make a format change from easy listening to hard rock. It aired on CBS from 1978 to 1982 and received 10 Emmy Award nominations, including three for Outstanding Comedy Series, during its run. (Trivia: the premise of the show – as well as several of the characters and story lines – was based on creator Hugh Wilson’s experiences working in advertising sales at Top 40 radio station WQXI-AM in Atlanta.) We have 20 episodes below.

  • Pilot, Part 1

    New program director Andy Travis shakes things up at WKRP when he changes the floundering radio station’s format from “beautiful music” to hard-driving rock’n’roll.
