WHYY-FM is a National Public Radio member on 90.9MHz, and serves the Delaware Valley area, which is the metro area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Offices are located in Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. Both the TV and FM transmitters are located in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia.

WHYY produces NPR: "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross, "Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane" [ [http://www.whyy.org/91FM/radiotimes.html Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane] , whyy.org] and "You Bet Your Garden", an organic gardening talk show.

WHYY Philadelphia also produces another NPR program, "A Chef's Table", with host and chef Jim Coleman.

Controversy erupted in the Summer of 2007 when station CEO Bill Marrazzo was cited by the watchdog group Charity Navigator as the highest paid CEO in all of public broadcasting.

Popular "Philadelphia Inquirer" columnist Karen Heller called for a boycott of WHYY in an August 2007 column and in September 2007 an anonymous group of WHYY employees sent an open letter to Marrazzo, the "Inquirer", the "Philadelphia Daily News" and "Philadelphia" magazine, accusing him of "a serious lack of understanding when it comes to creating ... a healthy workplace" and assailing his salary as "excessive and inappropriate." The five-page letter concluded with a call for Marrazzo to resign.
