Description: WPEK (880 AM), known as "880 the Revolution", is a daytime-only AM radio station in Fairview, North Carolina serving the greater Asheville, North Carolina area.WTZY signed on in the mid-'90s with a talk radio format, the second Asheville area station to air Rush Limbaugh (after WSKY).When the station's talk programming was moved to WWNC, WTZY became WPEK "The Peak", a classic country station. Later, the format was adult standards.In 2004, the format was switched to progressive talk. For several years, much of the programming came from Air America Media. Today the station broadcasts talk shows by hosts Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz, and Norman Goldman.In 2010, WPEK dropped Thom Hartmann, who moved to WPVM, to add their first local weekday hosts Lesley Groetsch and Blake Butler, whose "Local Edge Radio" includes "politics, arts and entertainment, live music and local listener call-ins".Weekend programing includes Mountain Music Time, a program of traditional bluegrass and mountain music broadcast on Saturday mornings, followed by an hour of the Errington Thompson Show. The remainder of the weekend is syndicated and sponsored national programming.
