The history of WCCO Radio begins with the "Call of the North" station WLAG, which began broadcasting in the region on September 4, 1922. However, the station soon landed in financial trouble and closed down in 1924. Washburn Crosby took over the station and renamed it to WCCO, and broadcasts resumed less than two months later on October 2, 1924. Early broadcasts took place on the frequency of 710 kHz.

In the early days of radio, WCCO was a powerful force in the development of better and more powerful transmitters. In 1928, WCCO changed its frequency to 810 kHz and in 1929 was granted a clear channel license. Construction of a new 50,000-watt tower operating at this frequency was complete by September 1932. In the 1930s, two additional 300-foot towers were added to increase the range of the station's signal, allowing it to be picked up as far away as Hawaii and the Caribbean Sea when atmospheric conditions were right. The Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) added WCCO to its network in 1937. In 1939, construction of a new transmitter, still at 810 kHz, was completed in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. This is the same tower used today, although the broadcast frequency was changed to 830 kHz just before World War II. 1928 was a leap year starting on Sunday (link will take you to calendar). ... 1929 was a common year starting on Tuesday (link will take you to calendar). ...

During the day, WCCO's signal covers 88 counties in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota. At night, the station's signal typically reaches across 28 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces. Certain conditions can make the signal stretch much farther—former station announcer Howard Viken says that he once picked up the station while he was stationed at Guadalcanal in 1943.

During those days, WCCO broadcasters were minor celebrities across the Midwest. One of them, Steve Cannon, had a distinguished broadcasting career spanning nearly six decades. WCCO Radio is known in its home market by its call letters, the phrase "Radio 8-3-0" or the nicknames "'CCO" or "The Good Neighbor," and plays a talk-oriented format, presenting news, opinion and a number of shows throughout the day, with occasional short stories like the station's "Point of Law" program which serves to both entertain and educate the station's listeners about finer points of the American legal system.

WCCO engineers were experimenting with frequency modulation by 1939, operating W9XHW at 42.3 MHz, but at just 50 watts. The station continued to only consider the medium tepidly. Around 1970, WCCO-FM was broadcasting at 2700 watts and only for the minimum number of hours required to keep a license to the frequency. It eventually became today's WLTE 102.9 FM.

WCCO was the top-rated station in the Twin Cities for decades until shifting demographics and interests finally brought KQRS-FM to the top spot. One sign of the changing times: the well-known farm report was dropped in early 2004, reflecting the fact that many farmers now rely more on the Internet for such information and that the number of farmers in Minnesota has drastically shrunk since the station first began broadcasting (though agriculture remains vital to the region).

In 1952, WCCO Radio merged with WTCN-TV. The TV channel originated in another radio station, WRHM, which took to the air in 1925. In 1934, two newspapers—the Minneapolis Tribune and the Saint Paul Pioneer Press-Dispatch—formed a joint venture named Twin Cities Newspapers which purchased the station and correspondingly changed the station's call letters to WTCN. WTCN-TV went on the air on July 1, 1949 as Minnesota's second television station, and became an ABC affiliate. Image File history File links Wcco_cbs4_minneapolis. ...

The station had broadcast from studios in the Radio City Theater building in downtown Minneapolis since the first WTCN-TV went on the air in 1949.

In 1987, WCCO bought KCMT, channel 7 in Alexandria and its satelite KNMT, channel 12 in Walker. KCMT had signed on in 1957 and had been the only full-power VHF station in central Minnesota. KNMT signed on in 1962 as a satelite of KCMT in northern Minnesota. They were renamed KCCO and KCCW respectively, and their local operations were progressively cut back until 2002, when local news segments on both stations were discontinued. WCCO has opened bureaus in Brainerd and St. Cloud, and stories produced in Alexandria, Brainerd and St. Cloud can be seen in the Twin Cities as well.

Until cable television became common in the early 1990s, WCCO was the exclusive carrier of most Twin Cities sporting events (Twins baseball, Minnesota Vikings football, Minnesota North Stars hockey and U of M athletics) on television and radio. Since 1992, however, rival Fox won NFL football from CBS and carried with it the Vikes, and the North Stars skipped town entirely; when hockey returned to Minnesota in the form of the Minnesota Wild, it would affiliate with former hometown independent KMSP.

WCCO experimented with cable in the 1980s. Known initially as WCCO II or 'CCO cable, it was a way to transmit programs that wouldn't ordinarily make it onto the over-the-air frequency. During this time, WCCO II aired local forecasts when not airing sports or other programming. This later morphed into the Midwest Sports Channel (MSC), which operated for several years. Following Viacom's purchase of CBS, MSC was sold to News Corp and became Fox Sports Net North. // Events and trends The 1980s marked an abrupt shift towards more conservative lifestyles after the momentous cultural revolutions which took place in the 1960s and 1970s and the definition of the AIDS virus in 1981. ...


A later experiment in 1995, this time in the field of evening newscasts, also proved to be interesting. WCCO partnered with KLGT channel 23 and fed a second news show to that station. This was known as "News of Your Choice," where the news anchors would periodically describe the upcoming items on each channel. This allowed viewers to decide which stories they wanted to see. Multiple factors contributed to the shutdown of the experiment after about one year. 1995 was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Notable personalities

An early local program broadcast by the station was a children's program named Axel and His Dog, featuring Clellan Card as Axel. In 1954, the first local program to be broadcast in color by the station was an episode of Axel.

Some notable personalities at the station have had long careers. Dave Moore, a Minneapolis native who had worked almost his entire career in the city, did evening newscasts from 1957 until the early 1990s when he moved to a more leisurely schedule broadcasting Moore on Sunday. In 1962 he had helped create The Bedtime Nooz, a satirical view of newscasts that aired on Saturday nights. Another program called The Scene Tonight was created in 1968. Both programs featured meteorologist Bud Kraehlig and other members of the regular station staff. Moore passed away in 1998.

Paul Douglas loses his job at WCCO (1170 words)
Paul Douglas, longtime WCCO weatherman and one of the Twin Cities' best-known media personalities, was released from the station Friday as part of nationwide cuts by CBS in response to dwindling ad revenue and TV viewership.
Douglas joins at least five WCCO employees, including weekend anchor John Reger, who were told their services were no longer needed as CBS reacts to a sluggish economy and stiff competition from the Internet.
WCCO is still considered a shining star in the CBS firmament as it continues to provide aggressive competition for KARE, the local NBC affiliate.
WCCO at AllExperts (1631 words)
In 1928, WCCO changed its frequency to 810 kHz and in 1929 was granted a clear channel license.

WCCO was purchased by CBS in 1992, many believe that the station was mis-managed in the following years.
