History

As WJZ

What is now WABC made its first broadcast on October 1, 1921 as WJZ, owned by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation and was based in Newark, New Jersey. The call letters themselves stood for their original home state, New Jer(Z) sey. It was originally housed in a shack on the roof of the Westinghouse meter factory on Orange and Plane streets in Newark, which was accessible only by ladder. The station later expanded into the one available space downstairs. is the 274th day of the year (275th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

WJZ started off on 360 meters (833 AM) and as one of the first stations to broadcast in the New York City area, was reluctant to share the frequency with other stations. WJZ later recommended that other frequencies be made available for broadcasting, and by 1923, WJZ had moved over to 660 AM. In that same year, WJZ shifted ownership from Westinghouse to RCA and changed its city of license from Newark to New York. New studios were in the 6th floor of the Aeolian Building. RCA, formerly an acronym for the Radio Corporation of America, is now a trademark owned by Thomson SA through RCA Trademark Management S.A., a company owned by Thomson. ... Aeolian Hall was a concert hall near Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, New York City located on the third floor of 29-33 West 42nd Street (also 34 West 43rd Street, from the other side) across the street from Bryant Park. ...


WJZ's first major program occurred on October 5, 1921 when it broadcast the 1921 World Series, but there was no play-by-play direct from the field. Announcer Tommy Cowan in Newark simply relayed the description phoned from the ballpark by a newspaper reporter. On March 15, 1922, WJZ broadcast a studio performance of Mozart's Impresario, probably radio's first full-length opera. In October 1922, WJZ aired its second World Series, this time feeding it to WGY in Schenectady, New York. For other uses, see 5th October (Serbia). ...

At the end of 1925, WJZ opened its new 50,000 watt transmitter from Bound Brook, New Jersey. However, it overwhelmed everything else on the air and engineers visited homes in central New Jersey to deal with the complaints. As a result, WJZ didn't operate regularly at 50,000 watts until 1935.

On March 24, 1932, WJZ became the first radio station to broadcast a program from aboard a moving train; the station aired a variety show produced aboard a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad passenger train travelling through Maryland.[1] In November 1933, WJZ, WEAF and all of the NBC and RCA corporate headquarters moved to 30 Rockefeller Plaza. is the 1st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Birth of ABC

In 1942, the FCC ruled that no broadcaster could own more than one station in a market. So, on October 12, 1943, WJZ and the NBC Blue Network were sold to Edward J. Noble, then the owner of WMCA.

The WABC calls were once used previously on CBS Radio's New York City outlet, before adopting their current WCBS identity in 1946. Westinghouse, however, didn't let the WJZ call go forgotten. After acquiring WAAM-TV in Baltimore, Maryland in 1957, Westinghouse applied to change the calls to WJZ-TV in honor of its pioneer radio station. The FCC granted the unusual request (perhaps because Westinghouse was highly regarded as a licensee by both the industry and the FCC at that time), and the Baltimore TV station retains the call letters to this day.

WABC's first era (1953-1960)

Although WABC continued to air ABC programming during this time, WABC began using deejays playing recorded music. Some programs featured "middle of the road" mainstream pop and showtunes, while other portions of the schedule included long-form newscasts and dramatic programs, similar to the other network-owned stations in New York like WCBS and WNBC. This would continue until 1960, as the Musicradio 77 era began. A hint of what was to come came in 1958-59, when for a time legendary rock and blues disk jockey Alan Freed hosted a daily evening show on WABC which was formatically (sic) and musically like the early rock shows he had gained fame with on WINS. Freed's time at WABC ended when he was caught up in the investigation of the "payola" scandals of the era. This article includes a list of works cited or a list of external links, but its sources remain unclear because it lacks in-text citations. ... Payola, in the American music industry, is the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on music radio, in which the song is presented as being part of the normal days broadcast. ...


The Musicradio 77 era (1960-1982)

Early years

WABC committed to a virtually full-time schedule of top-40 songs played by upbeat personalities during the first week of December, 1960. WABC's early days as a Top 40 station were humble ones. Top 40 WINS was the #1 music station and WMCA was also a formidable competitor, while WABC barely ranked in the Top Ten. Fortunately for WABC, the other Top 40 outlets could not be heard well in certain New York and New Jersey suburbs, since WINS, WMGM, and WMCA were all directional stations. WABC, with its 50,000-watt non-directional signal, had the advantage of being heard in places west, south, and northwest – a huge chunk of the suburban population – and this is where the station began to draw ratings. Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ... WINS (1010 kHz. ... WMCA, 570 AM, is a radio station in New York City, most known for its Good Guys Top 40 era in the 1960s. ... WEPN (1050 kHz), branded as 1050 ESPN Radio, is a 24-hour sports radio station in New York City featuring national and local sports talk programs and live broadcasts of sports matches. ...


Sam Holman was the first WABC program director of this era. Under Holman, WABC achieved #1 ratings in late 1962, when WINS and WMCA experimented with "softer" music. During 1963, both WINS and WMCA went back to pop Top 40 and WABC slipped a bit. By the summer of 1963, WMCA led the pack, with WABC at #2 and WINS slipping to third place. It has been said, but is difficult to verify, that WMCA dominated in the city proper, while WABC owned the suburbs. This would be consistent with WMCA's 5,000-watt directional signal, although WMCA had the benefit of a lower frequency than WABC.


Dominant years

A decision was made to make Rick Sklar the program director. He would go on to become a member of the Radio Hall of Fame and be credited as one of the pioneering architects of the Top 40 format. Under Sklar, the station went to the shortest playlist of any contemporary music station in history; the number one song was heard almost every hour. In his book Rockin' America, Sklar said he was sensitive to payola concerns and advanced airplay.

Early 1960s disc jockeys included Herb Oscar Anderson, Charlie Greer, Scott Muni, Chuck Dunaway, and Bob Lewis, but the best known WABC DJs are the ones that followed them in the mid-1960s and beyond: Harry Harrison, Ron Lundy, Jim Nettleton, Jim Perry, Dan Ingram, Radio Hall of Fame member "Cousin Brucie" Bruce Morrow, Chuck Leonard, Bob Cruz, Frank Kingston Smith, Roby Yonge, George Michael, and Johnny Donovan.

Especially in the afternoons and evenings, WABC was the station that teenagers could be heard listening to on transistor radios all over the New York metropolitan area.[citation needed] Due to its strong signal, the station could be heard over 100 miles away -- as far as the Catskill Mountains, Pocono Mountains and outlying areas of Philadelphia. It could also be heard well after sunset in Ontario, Canada (from Toronto, north to Georgian Bay on Lake Huron) well into the night and early morning hours on home and car radios.

A famous tape, or aircheck, of WABC from 1964 features some of the DJs speaking from a window of the Beatles' hotel room during the Fab Four's visit to New York City, while Dan Ingram, back in the studio, played WABC jingles to thousands of teenagers in the streets below, who enthusiastically sang along with them. Ingram later noted that this was actually illegal under FCC rules, but said that they didn't know it at the time. In the wake of the success of "W-A-Beatle-C" (as it was briefly called around the time of the Beatles' U.S. visit), competitor WINS finally dropped out of the Top 40 battle in 1965, adopting an all-news format. As a tribute to WABC, the television network also called itself "A-Beatles-C" whenever it promoted airings of Beatles-related films. In the radio industry, an aircheck is generally a demonstration recording, often intended to show off the talent of an announcer or radio programmer to a prospective future employer. ...


Just before the famous New York City power outage in 1965, Dan Ingram noted that the power was fluctuating and began having fun with the slowed-down music. After playing "Everyone's Gone To The Moon" by Johnathan King, he quipped it was played "in the key of R." After the 6 PM newscast, WABC left the air as the outage settled in for real. [1]


In the 1970s, WABC was either #1 or #2 consistently, often trading places with WOR. Once in a while, a station attracting an older audience (like WOR or WPAT) would move into the top spot, but these stations were not truly WABC's competitors. Chief competitor WMCA stopped playing top 40 music in 1970, WWDJ lasted from 1971 to 1974, and WOR-FM, later99X, came and went from 1968 to 1978. Other FM competitors like oldies WCBS-FM, black-urban WBLS, and album-oriented rock stations like WPLJ and WNEW-FM all did well in the ratings, but none rivalled WABC's success. AM competitor WNBC also never came close to WABC's audience during this period. Even though WNBC tried sounding younger, older, and somewhere in-between, WABC remained dominant.

WABC's ratings strength came from its cumulative audience, what the radio industry calls "cume". Most listeners didn't stay with WABC for long periods of time, as the station had some of the shortest "time spent listening" (or TSL) spans in the history of music radio -- an average listener spent about 10 minutes listening to WABC. It was the price paid for a short playlist and a lot of commercials between songs (the large amount of commercials being due to WABC's large audience), but what WABC lacked in TSL it more than made up for with its sheer number of listeners.


Fed up with the short playlist, Cousin Brucie left in 1974 for rival WNBC. Rick Sklar left in 1976 to become VP of programming for ABC Radio, and assistant PD Glenn Morgan became WABC's program director. For other uses, see ABC Radio (disambiguation). ...

Disco and the end of "Musicradio" WABC

The end of the 1970s found FM radio beginning to overtake AM music stations in most markets. In July of 1978, WKTU abruptly dropped its adult contemporary format in favor of a disco-based top 40 format known as "Disco 92". By December of that year, WABC was unseated, as WKTU became the #1 station in New York City. The first "disco" ratings saw WKTU with 11 percent of the listening audience -- a huge number anywhere, let alone in a market the size of New York City -- and WABC dropping from 4.1 million listeners to 3 million, losing 25 percent of its audience practically overnight. 103. ...


After this initial ratings tumble, WABC panicked and began airing extended disco mixes back-to-back. Some of the disco songs ran in excess of six, seven or eight minutes. What regular listeners heard was a major change in sound. The familiar format had disappeared - hit music, jingles, commercials - and as a result, WABC began to lose its identity. In the late spring of 1979, Billboard magazine reported that Rick Sklar had demoted program director Glenn Morgan to "moving [music] carts" instead of making programming decisions. WABC's numbers dropped for four consecutive ratings periods. It has been suggested that Billboard be merged into this article or section. ...


On August 2, 1979, the Donna Summer disco hit "MacArthur Park" was playing during Dan Ingram's afternoon drive program.

In September of 1979, Al Brady Law took over the station, and according to an account by DJ George Michael, Rick Sklar was removed from his oversight of WABC and was moved "upstairs." Law cut back the current songs slightly (though still playing the top song over a dozen times a day) and added more 1970s rock, some album cuts, and a few big 1960s hits. He also changed the presentation of the station. The goal was to increase the station's poor time-spent-listening, and for this, he desired a new direction.

Longtime DJs Harry Harrison, Chuck Leonard, and George Michael were gone that November. Dan Ingram moved to mornings, Bob Cruz moved to afternoons, and Sturgis Griffin joined for overnights while Howard Hoffman did evenings. Hoffman was one of the first of the 1980s style of contemporary hit radio (CHR) DJs -- heavy on brief phone bits from listeners and a sarcastic sense of humor, sounding "hip", as the future Z100 DJs would a few years later -- but his ratings were merely okay, and he didn't stay long.

The time-spent-listening did improve, but WABC was still losing audience and they were under extreme pressure to regain lost ground. The station started to become more information-oriented, adding morning traffic reports by Shadow Traffic's Jack Packard (aka Bernie Wagenblast) on December 3, 1979. Al Brady Law left the station in the summer of 1980 as WABC added the New York Yankees baseball games that all-news WINS was unable to air due to their coverage of the 1980 Democratic and Republican conventions.

In the summer of 1980, Jay Clark took over WABC. By the fall, the station played current music that was more Adult Contemporary (AC) in sound, trying to appeal to a slightly older audience, as most younger listeners had moved to the FM dial. WABC still played rock and soul crossovers in moderation, but began to move away from album cuts and more toward 1960s and 1970s oldies. They also dropped the "Musicradio WABC" slogan and became "77 WABC, New York's Radio Station", the apparent implication being that the station was more than "just" music.


By early 1981, WABC's cumulative audience was down to 2.5 million -- rival WNBC, a perennial also-ran, was by this time beating them with 2.9 million. Fewer people were tuning in to WABC, listeners who had switched to FM were not coming back, and, while still moderately successful, the ship was sinking. Like Al Brady Law, Jay Clark tried to improve the time-spent-listening. Howard Hoffman and Bob Cruz departed, Dan Ingram went back to his familiar afternoon slot, and the team of Ross Brittain and Brian Wilson from Atlanta moved into morning drive. Atlanta redirects here. ...


That spring, WABC became the full-time flagship radio outlet for New York Yankees baseball games, a distinction the station carried through the end of the 2001 season. This would be the longest continuous relationship the team would have with any flagship station (to date). Jay Clark reasoned that Yankee baseball would bring back some listeners to the station and that they would recycle back into the music format, but not even the "Bronx Bombers" could save music on WABC.


At the time the Yankees became a regular WABC feature, the station also began airing a weeknight sports-talk show with Art Rust, Jr. WABC's ratings by this point were mediocre at best -- and they were still going down.


In the fall of 1981, WABC dropped the remaining heavy-rock cuts and non-crossover urban hits. They began playing more oldies, as well as songs from the adult contemporary chart, and added an "advice" talk show with Doctor Judy Kuriansky. By this point, WABC was almost unrecognizable as a Top 40 station, the ratings were languishing, and rumors were rampant that the station would be changing format.


In February of 1982, WABC officially confirmed it would be going to an all-talk format that May. The airstaff began saying goodbye with a comment here and there from February into May. Finally, on April 30, it was announced that the switch to all-talk would occur on May 10 at noon.

May 10, 1982, the day WABC stopped playing music, is sometimes called "The Day The Music Died". WABC ended its 22-year run as a music station with a 9 a.m.-noon farewell show hosted by longtime WABC disc jockeys Dan Ingram and Ron Lundy. The last song played on WABC before the format change was "Imagine" by John Lennon, followed by the familiar WABC "Chime Time" jingle, then a moment of silence before the debut of the new talk format. is the 130th day of the year (131st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The NewsTalkRadio 77 era (1982-current)

Early years

Initially after the format change, the station ran a lot of satellite talk from corporate ABC's "Talk Radio" network. Ross and Wilson stayed on and continued to play 4 songs per hour (mostly '60s and '70s hits) throughout 1982. In 1983, they stopped playing music as well. Ross and Wilson split up in 1983 when Ross went over to Z-100. While the station's final ratings as a music station were mediocre, their talk ratings initially were even lower. WHTZ, also known as Z100, is a radio station that serves New York City and the neighboring Northern New Jersey region, broadcasting on the FM band at a frequency of 100. ...


Still, the station stuck with the new format. They added more issues-oriented talk shows, with an increasing number of conservative talk show hosts (a couple of liberals also hosted shows). The ratings grew and by the late 1980s, they were a very successful talk station. The program director behind this was John Mainelli, and then Phil Boyce. Phil Boyce is an American program director for NewsTalkRadio WABC (AM) in New York City, as well Vice President of news/talk programming for ABC radio. ...


From 1984 to 1996 WABC broadcast the popular and influential Bob Grant, a controversial talk radio pioneer. After years of what many considered racist and inflammatory remarks, he was fired in 1996 for a controversial comment regarding the death of United States Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown. Grant has since returned as a guest host as of July 2007.

Flagship-wise, Limbaugh's show was produced at WABC from 1988 until the early 2000s, when he started doing the program from Premiere Radio Networks and a studio in his home in South Florida.

Virtually all of WABC's weekday lineup -- Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Grant, and Ingraham -- consists of hosts with very similar viewpoints. Program director Phil Boyce has stated that these programming decisions are ratings-driven, while critics of WABC state that the station's programming reflects a conscious conservative political advocacy. The station's slogan is "News, opinion, passion". American conservatism is a constellation of political ideologies within the United States under the blanket heading of conservative. ...


In 2004, the station earned the distinction of being a news/talk radio station even longer than it had been a Top 40 station, by marking 22 years in its present format.

Currently, WABC carries New York Jets football, simulcasting the games along with former sister station WEPN. This arrangement was made when both stations were still co-owned, largely because WABC has a stronger signal than WEPN.
