WTOP celebrated a 40th anniversary Tuesday with a party at the Newseum. It’s the top-rated radio station in the DC market.

In attendance: WTOP’s Mike McMearty, Mike Gartell, CBS Radio’s Harvey Nagler, Jim Bohannon, Dave McConnell, NPR’s Ann Taylor, and Bob Madigan, who served as the evening’s emcee.

DC Mayor Adrian Fenty, who declared Tuesday “WTOP Day” also made an appearance.
