History

Channel 22 signed on August 22, 1964 as WONE-TV. Conventional wisdom suggested that it would take the ABC affiliation, since it was Dayton's third commercial station. However, it started as an independent station since the Dayton market was decently covered by WKRC-TV in Cincinnati and WTVN-TV (now WSYX) in Columbus. However, ABC wanted its own affiliate in Dayton. As such, beginning in 1965, WONE began running ABC prime time shows and sports, plus any daytime ABC shows that WKRC pre-empted. WONE had no local newscasts at the time. August 22 is the 234th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (235th in leap years), with 131 days remaining. ... 1964 (MCMLXIV) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (the link is to a full 1964 calendar). ... WKRC-TV is a television station based in Cincinnati, Ohio, owned by Clear Channel Communications. ... Cincinnati, Ohio viewed from the SW, across the Ohio River from Kentucky. ... WSYX, channel six, is the ABC television affiliate in Columbus, Ohio. ... Nickname: The Arch City The Discovery City Location in the state of Ohio, USA Coordinates: Country United States State Ohio Counties Franklin, Delaware, and Fairfield  - Mayor Michael B. Coleman (D) Area    - City  212. ... 1965 (MCMLXV) was a common year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1965 calendar). ...


Soon after the station joined ABC, it was sold to Springfield Television Corporation (owner of WWLP in Springfield, Massachusetts), and renamed WKEF. By the end of the 1970s ABC had finally gained an equal footing with CBS and NBC (with shows such as Happy Days), and was unhappy with the Cincinnati/Dayton arrangement. ABC affiliates in Cincinnati and Columbus were preempting decent amounts of daytime programming, late night shows and some of the weekend kids shows. ABC wanted a station in Dayton that could run its whole schedule and be able to reach Cincinnati and Columbus. It also wanted a station that had local news. WKEF began a newscast in 1978, but this was not enough to save its affiliation with ABC. WWLP-TV TV 22 is the NBC affiliate serving the Springfield / Holyoke, Massachusetts television market. ... Nickname: City of Homes Location in Massachusetts Coordinates: Country United States State Massachusetts County Hampden County Settled 1636 Incorporated 1636 Government type Mayor-council city  - Mayor Charles Ryan (D) Area    - City  33. ... CBS is one of the largest radio and television networks in the United States. ... NBC (an abbreviation for National Broadcasting Company, its former corporate name) is an American television network headquartered in the GE Building in New York Citys Rockefeller Center. ... Happy Days was a popular American television sitcom that originally aired between 1974 and 1984 on the ABC television network. ... 1978 (MCMLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Sunday. ...


So on January 1, 1980 when WDTN's affiliation contract with NBC expired, ABC quickly moved its affiliation there. WKEF was then left to take the NBC affiliation. Unlike its ABC deal, WKEF now ran NBC's entire schedule. January 1 is the first day of the calendar year in both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. ... 1980 (MCMLXXX) was a leap year starting on Tuesday. ... WDTN (channel 2) is a television station in Dayton, Ohio, affiliated with the NBC network since August 30, 2004. ...


In 1984, the Springfield Television group (WKEF, WWLP and KSTU in Salt Lake City, Utah) was sold to Adams Communications. Adams broke up the group in the late 80s, selling WKEF to KT Communications in 1989. KT, in turn, sold WKEF to Max Television (later Max Media) in 1995. KSTU (FOX13) is the Fox owned-and-operated television station serving the Salt Lake City, Utah television market. ... Salt Lake City redirects here. ... 1989 (MCMLXXXIX) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


In 1998, WKEF was sold to Sinclair in a group deal. Sinclair was already managing WRGT owned by Sullivan, and Sinclair moved WRGT's operations to WKEF's studio. In 2001, Sinclair bought most of Sullivan's stations, but could not buy WRGT because the FCC does not allow common ownership of two of the four highest-rated stations in a market. Also, the Dayton market has only six full-power commercial stations — too few to permit duopolies. Accordingly, WRGT was sold to Cunningham Broadcasting, whose stock is almost entirely owned by the Smith family, founders of Sinclair. This effectively gave Sinclair a duopoly in Dayton. The abbreviation FCC can refer to: Face-centered cubic (usually fcc), a crystallographic structure Federal Communications Commission, a US government organization Farm Credit Corporation/Farm Credit Canada, a Canadian government organization Families with Children from China, an adoption support organization Florida Christian College, a college in central Florida Fresno City... A true duopoly is a form of oligopoly where only two producers exist in a market. ...


On August 30, 2004 WDTN again took the opportunity to sign up with the more popular network, dropping ABC to switch back to NBC. Thus, as of August 2004, WKEF became an ABC affiliate again. WKEF now runs the entire ABC schedule, though only a few months after becoming an ABC affiliate again, the station, and all other Sinclair-owned ABC affiliates including sister WSYX in Columbus as well as two other ABC affiliates in Ohio, preempted the movie Saving Private Ryan. Its newscast contains some elements of Sinclair's "News Central." In the 1980s, WKEF's news programs were known as 22 Alive! News. August 30 is the 242nd day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (243rd in leap years), with 123 days remaining. ... 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... WSYX, channel six, is the ABC television affiliate in Columbus, Ohio. ... Nickname: The Arch City The Discovery City Location in the state of Ohio, USA Coordinates: Country United States State Ohio Counties Franklin, Delaware, and Fairfield  - Mayor Michael B. Coleman (D) Area    - City  212. ... Saving Private Ryan is a 1998 Academy Awards winning film, directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Robert Rodat, set in World War II. This film is particularly notable for the intensity of the scenes in its first 25 minutes, which depict the Omaha beachhead assault of June 6, 1944. ... News Central is an english newscast aired daily on Studio 23. ...


Ratings wise, its newscasts have always been a distant third place behind WHIO-TV and WDTN. On some nights (usually Sundays because of ABC programming) there are times that WKEF is runner-up to WHIO. On June 5, 2006, WKEF debuted a morning newscast, which will help them compete with WHIO and WDTN's news departments. WHIO-TV is a television station in Dayton, OH. Affiliated with the CBS Television Network, it was started on channel 13 on July 11, 1949 and moved to channel 7 in 1952. ... June 5 is the 156th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (157th in leap years), with 209 days remaining. ... For the Manfred Mann album, see 2006 (album). ...


For many years, WKEF produced the daily children's program Clubhouse 22 hosted by Malcolm McLeoud in the early 1970s with Joe Smith taking over in the mid 1970s. Their cohorts included Duffy the Dog,Stan The Man and later Dr. Creep (played by Barry Hobart). Dr. Creep was also the host of WKEF's weekly horror movie presentation, Shock Theater. Joseph Smith (born July 26, 1975 in Norfolk, Virginia) where he attended Maury High School, is an American basketball player for the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA. His height is listed as 6-10. ...
