WWL dates back to the
early 20's as one of the nation's oldiest stations. As a 1-A clear channel
station, it has a rich history. The station was owned by Loyola University
up until the 90's, though it operated as a strictly commercial venture.
Has been CBS-affiliated for almost all its history. WWL TV 4 and WWL FM
101.9 were brought into the world by WWL AM. The station was MoR and news/talk
from the 50's until the 80's, when the music was phased out in favor of
all news, talk and sports. Since the late 60's, however, late night programming
has been devoted to interstate truck drivers. The late night country music
shows can be heard in almost 2/3 of the country! In the 70's and 80's WWL
faced formidable competition from other news/talk stations in the market.
They have all faded out and now the station enjoys some of its best ratings
