Frequently Asked Questions
Where did the name Point Hope come from?
Many years ago, while broadcasting live in Philadelphia on a hot summer night; Delilah took her audience on an imaginary adventure to the coolest part of the country, Point Hope, Alaska, where the temperatures were 50 degrees cooler. The idea of this place offered relief from a hot and sweltering night. The name of the town stuck with Delilah.
