IN 1949... WKTV Goes On the Air
On December 1, 1949, WKTV went on the air. It was the 93rd television station in the country to sign on. In 1949 alone, 47 TV stations signed on for the first time, including WROC-TV (then WHAM-TV) in Rochester, WBNG-TV in Binghamton and WWOR in New York City.
Originally WKTV was affiliated with all four networks in operation; NBC, ABC, CBS and DuMont. In a few years, DuMont was out of business and the CBS affiliacy was taken by a Syracuse station. WKTV stayed an affiliate of NBC and ABC until 1970. Today, WKTV remains one of the oldest members on the NBC family.
