Station History

WCOS signed on in 1939, making it Columbia's second radio station. In 1959, the station switched over to Top 40, a format that it kept for the next 20 years. In 1980, it changed over to Country music, simulcasting parts of the broadcasting day of their sister FM, WCOS-FM. In the early 1990's, the station adjusted it's format to satellite-fed Classic Country, but went back to simulcasting WCOS-FM within a year's time. In 1996, it adopted its present Sports talk format. Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ...

WCO extends hand to shippers (2376 words)
While the WCO has increased its influence in the development of regulatory principles that increase efficiency in moving cargo across borders, it began with a humbler origin.
The WCO began in 1947 when the 13 European governments of the Committee for European Economic Cooperation agreed to set up a Study Group to examine the possibility of creating one or more inter-European Customs Unions based on the principles of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade.
The WCO is credited with developing the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding system, which is used by customs agencies worldwide as the basis for classifying goods and for the collection of customs revenue.
