History

The station signed on the air on September 2, 1995 and was Nashville's affiliate for The WB, although the station's license was granted in 1987. By mere coincidence, the call letters were chosen as WNAB; something that would be exploited when the station became affiliated with The WB. September 2 is the 245th day of the year (246th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full 1995 Gregorian calendar). ... 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Original owner Speer Communications launched the station from studios on Dickerson Road in Nashville, in a former Sam's Club building. Offering five hours of live, locally-produced programming each weekday, WNAB was quickly a hit among Nashville viewers, although the station lacked cable coverage in many of the suburbs. Controversial former Nashville mayor and U.S. congressman Bill Boner hosted an hour-long interview/call-in show, Prime Talk each weeknight. Its follow-up, Sports Talk, featured Nashville Banner sportswriter Greg Pogue and popular radio personality George Plaster showing highlights and taking calls about the day's sports action. On Friday nights in the fall, Sports Talk was extended by an hour and featured Nashville's first television show entirely devoted to high school football scores. Since the 1996 season at least one of Nashville's television stations has continued this tradition. Within two years, all of the live programming except Sports Talk had been canceled (partly due to budget constraints, partly due to The WB expanding its lineup past Sundays and Wednesdays). Plaster left Sports Talk and it was rebranded as Sports Plus and featured news and weather in addition to its sports content. It too was canceled in 1998.

Speer Communications had planned to use WNAB as a base of operations for a small network of television stations in each of Tennessee's six television markets. A statewide newscast was planned as part of the network. However, the company went bankrupt before any of the plans could come to fruition. The station was later sold to Lambert Broadcasting (now Tennessee Broadcasting) who operated the station for a short while and later outsourced its sales and operations to Sinclair Broadcast Group via an outsourcing agreement. The Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG) NASDAQ: SBGI is the operator of the largest number of local television stations in the United States with a total of 59 stations across the country in 38 primarily small and medium markets, many of which are located in the South and the Midwest. ...
