History

The station originally signed on as WRRN, the call letters being a contraction of "Warren." In 1948,[1] it was purchased by Helen Hart Hurlburt, publisher of the Tribune-Chronicle, and the call sign was changed to WHHH, to reflect her initials. Under her ownership, a construction permit was obtained for a television station, WHHH-TV on channel 67 in the early 1950s[2], but the station never made it onto the air, probably because of the vagaries of operating a UHF station at the time. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...


Hurlburt sold the station to Warren Broadcasting Co. in 1981, and the call letters were changed to WRRO (for "WaRRen, Ohio") on May 4, 1981. The station was subsequently purchased in February 1996 by Star Communications, Inc., headed by Art Greenberg and Phil Levine of Cleveland.
