History

WTOL began broadcasting on October 13, 1958 as a CBS affiliate with a secondary ABC affiliation. It shared ABC with WSPD-TV (now WTVG) until 1970, when ABC went to formerly independent WDHO-TV (now WNWO-TV). WTOL has been exclusively affiliated with CBS ever since. WTOL is also the only station in Toledo to never change its primary affiliation. October 13 is the 286th day of the year (287th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1958 (MCMLVIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... CBS is one of the largest radio and television networks in the United States. ...

The station was originally owned by the Clients of Toledo, Ohio Investors, and was then sold to Filmways (now part of Sony Pictures Television) in 1962. The Broadcasting Company of the South, a subsidiary of South Carolina insurer Liberty Life Insurance Company, bought WTOL in 1965 and later changed its name to Cosmos Broadcasting Corporation. Liberty reorganized itself as a holding company, The Liberty Corporation, in 1974, and WTOL came directly under the Liberty banner after Liberty sold off its insurance business in 2003. Liberty merged with Raycom Media in 2005. Raycom already owned WNWO, but couldn't keep both because the FCC does not allow one person to own two of the four biggest stations in a single market. It opted to keep the higher-rated WTOL and sold WNWO to Barrington Broadcasting. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...
