History

The station was founded in 1926 by Warren P. Williamson, Jr. (1900-1996). It was Youngstown's first radio station, signing on the air on September 26, 1926 at 1400 kHz at 50 watts. The original facilities were in the basement of Williamson's home, but by the following year operations had moved to studios in the YMCA in downtown Youngstown. Ownership was organized in the name of the Radio Electric Service Co., and later WKBN Broadcasting Corporation. With the implementation of the FRC's General Order 40 on November 11, 1928 the station moved 570 kHz where it remains today. 1926 (MCMXXVI) was a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar). ...
