History

The station is one of the five original Pittsburgh stations that signed on the air in the 1920s. It first signed on under the WCAE call letters on May 3, 1922. When then sister TV station WTAE-TV began broadcasting in 1958, the AM callsign was changed to WTAE (AM). The station was also known for a time as WRYT. For most of its life, WCAE/WTAE offered a MOR/talk format, but in the 1980s, the MOR elements were dropped in favor of more talk. In 1997, Hearst-Argyle sold WTAE radio to SFX, who then traded the station to Chancellor, who in turn traded it again to Jacor Communications in exchange for WKNR in Cleveland, Ohio in August 1998. Jacor finally sold it to ABC later that year. During Jacor's brief ownership, the station changed the call letters to WEAE in order to separate it from the now-former sister TV station.
