- This was a a very short
lived station put on the air by Dick Biddle (as Daylight
Broadcasting), probably in 1950 and lasting no longer than 1957.
Biddle was required to turn in the license to this station in order to
acquire and start up WOWL-TV, which debuted in 1957. The FCC
rules of the time did not allow for one person to own a radio and a TV
station in the same market. It's unknown for how long the
station operated, if at all, and what format it might have had.
The 1952 Broadcasting Yearbook has no information on the station and
lists it as a 1 kW daytimer with a construction permit.
