WYPA is a non–commercial Contemporary Christian radio station that covers a wide radius around the Cherry Hill, NJ area, including Philadelphia. WYPA offers a wide variety of music and specialty programming, mostly sponsored by local Churches and various businesses.

Formerly owned by Thomas Moffit Sr.'s Broadcast Learning Center, WYPA was sold to California–based EMF Broadcasting's "K-Love" radio network for $2.5M US; $600,000 cash at closing (including $122,500 escrow deposit) plus $1.85 million promissory note. The sale was brokered by John Pierce and Co. LLC and represented the Educational Media Foundation's entry into the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan radio market. The sale, which began in August 2006, was finalized on 10 January 2007 and the station switched to K–Love's Network feed at 17:00 (EST) the same day. No local programming or sponsorship spots have aired since that time. The station's new call letters were WKVP, ostensibly "(K)lo(V)e (P)hiladelphia". On November 5, 2013, the station changed its call sign to the current WYPA — the WKVP call sign moved to EMF's Camden, New Jersey station, the former WWIQ.
