History

The station signed on air on September 18, 1954. It has been an ABC affiliate from the beginning, although its market area was smaller then. The South Carolina portion of its current market was served by WAIM-TV, channel 40, in Anderson. WLOS boosted its signal to cover upstate South Carolina in 1979 and pressured ABC to drop its affiliation with WAIM. September 18 is the 261st day of the year (262nd in leap years). ... 1954 (MCMLIV) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ... This page refers to the year 1979. ...


The station was owned by Wometco until 1984, when the company was sold to the investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR). WLOS was later sold to Anchor Media, which in turn was later sold to River City Broadcasting, which merged with Sinclair in 1996. Channel 40 in Anderson, now MyNetworkTV affiliate WMYA-TV, is also now operated and effectively owned by Sinclair. 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co (commonly referred to as KKR) is a New York City-based private equity firm that focuses primarily on late stage leveraged buyouts. ... The introduction to this article provides insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject matter. ... 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ... MyNetworkTV (sometimes written My Network TV, and unofficially abbreviated MyNet, MyTV, MNT, or MNTV) is a television network in the United States, owned by News Corporation, which launched on September 4, 2006 with preview specials; its two initial series began in earnest on September 5. ... WMYA-TV is the MyNetworkTV television affiliate station for the Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville television market. ...


Late Night

WLOS began 24/7 broadcasting in late 2005/early 2006, having previously signed off on early Saturday mornings from 5-6 AM after the late movie. It may still put up color bars now for a few minutes if the movie ends early but otherwise has paid programming. WLOS also signed off every night until 1992 with the introduction of ABC's overnight World News Now, and later just late Friday night/early Saturday morning and late Saturday night/early Sunday morning until the early 2000s. according to a priticular sign-off clip from 1988, the sign offs back then included the national anthem played by the Mason County High School Band, while the color bars afterwards said "Good Morning, 13 WLOS-TV, Asheville, NC." Later on, the sign-offs included Sandi Patty's rendition of the national anthem with a video of different people saluting the flag, followed by shots of newspaper presses and people voting with ballots. These years used a color version of the Indian-head test pattern and in the center said "13 WLOS Asheville-Greenville-Spartanburg."


Slogans

WLOS used the slogan "Count on 13" from 1988 to 1993, and from 1984 to 1988 used a "Turn To" slogan because of Frank Gari's "Turn To News" theme for the newscasts.
