Initially as WCCT the station ran religious programs most of the broadcast day such as 700 Club, Richard Roberts, Jimmy Swaggart, PTL Club, and others. They also ran an in house Christian program called Niteline which was produced by sister station WGGS initially. Eventually WCCT began producing its own version of Niteline. For about 6 hours a day WCCT ran general entertainment family shows including cartoons, old sitcoms, westerns, and hunting/sports shows. The 700 Club is a Christian News and talk show hosted by religious leader Pat Robertson, airing on cables ABC Family and in syndication throughout the United States and Canada. ...

The station was sold to secular interests in 1988, who renamed it WACH and made it Columbia's Fox affiliate, under the on-air nickname "WACH-TV57" (pronounced "watch TV57"). For Fox' first seasons, Columbia viewers watched the fledgling network on WTTG, channel 5, from Washington DC, which had been available on cable systems for many years in Columbia. WTTG continued to be available on Columbia's two major cable systems, Wometco and TCI, for several years after 57 affiliated with Fox. Initially WACH kept Christian programming on weekdays from 9 AM to Noon and from 12 Midnight to 2 AM. The new owners also agreed to continue producing and airing Columbia Niteline programming for an hour a day for 5 years. Niteline was gone by 1993, along with most of the religious shows. The station eventually renamed itself "WACH FOX57" in the 1990s. Year 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday (link displays 1988 Gregorian calendar). ...


On March 27, 2006 it was announced that WACH was one of the twelve television stations that would be sold to Barrington Broadcasting. This came as a result of Raycom's merger with The Liberty Corporation. Raycom could not keep WACH and Liberty's former flagship station, NBC affiliate WIS, due to FCC regulations preventing one company owning two of the four largest stations in a market.[citation needed] Raycom opted to keep the longer-established WIS and put WACH for sale. The transaction was completed on August 11, 2006. March 27 is the 86th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (87th in leap years). ... For the Manfred Mann album, see 2006 (album). ...

After a 10-year cooperation with WIS in Columbia, WACH ended its news agreement with WIS and launched its own newscast at 10 PM on March 4, 2007. This was the first time the station produced its own newscast. It had depended on WIS in Columbia to co-produce the newscast in the past. The station built its own news set (but retained the desk and the design of the original set) as well as a brand-new weather center. The station launched a morning news program (6-9 AM) in April 2007.


In March of 2007, Mike Woolfolk, co-anchor and managing editor of WACH FOX News at Ten, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in Region III of the National Association of Black Journalists. WACH-TV is on channel 6 on Time Warner Cable.


News Program

WACH launched a 10 PM newscast in 1996 in conjunction with WIS. It was one of the first primetime newscasts in South Carolina, and the only 10 pm newscast in Columbia. It has been one of the highest-rated primetime newscasts in the country for many years. The station produced its own newscast starting on March 4 and ended the long-established relationship with WIS. Year 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full 1996 Gregorian calendar). ...


On April 23, 2007, WACH launched the new local morning show, "WACH FOX News Good Day." It airs head-on against WIS and WLTX for local news during the first hour. The station touts the fact that it is the only local news program during the time WIS and WLTX airs the national morning news shows. The impact of the newscast on the market remains to be seen.

Essays in the History of Religions (3925 words)
Wach always asserted that the method of the history of religions must be commensurate with its subject matter, that is, the nature and expressions of the religious experience of humankind as that experience has been unfolded in history.
Wach was convinced that the raison d’être of the history of religions is the hidden "religious experience" of humankind, described as the experience of the "holy" by Rudolf Otto and as the experience of "power" by G. van der Leeuw.
Wach believed that the history of religions was a discipline to be taught in a university, ideally simultaneously in a department of theology and in the humanities.
