History

WUAB had the humblest of beginnings. United Artists Broadcasting was its original owner, bringing the station to life on September 15, 1968. It was the second commercial UHF station in the area; WKBF-TV had beaten it to the air by eight months. Its main studio was in a combination bowling area kiddie's room and a trailer in a shopping center in Parma, with sales offices in downtown Cleveland. WUAB quickly overcame a shaky start to become one of the country's top independent stations. The station's talents, such as Linn Sheldon, had been polished TV personalities with experience on Cleveland's network affiliates. The current United Artists logo (a variant was used during the 1980s). ... is the 258th day of the year (259th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... WKBF-TV channel 61 was an Independent television station serving the Cleveland, Ohio market owned by a joint venture between Kaiser Broadcasting and Field Communications (the latter owned a minority stake in the station from 1972 to 1975). ...


Originally, WUAB's slogan was Channel 43 plays favorites. Most of these favorites were cartoons, syndicated off-network sitcoms, movies, and religious shows. WUAB broadcast these shows out of a new facility on Day Drive in suburban Parma, which opened on September 7, 1970. Parma is a city in Cuyahoga County, Ohio and is the largest suburb of Cleveland. ...


Both WUAB and WKBF struggled to be profitable, despite the deep pockets of their owners (WKBF was owned by Kaiser Broadcasting). Both signed on everyday at around 10 a.m. and went off the air by 1 a.m. Kaiser Broadcasting was short lived but very popular entity of broadcast television stations. ...


By September 2, 1974, WUAB had clearly established itself at the leading independent in Cleveland. Kaiser opted to shut down WKBF and purchase a percentage of WUAB on March 28, 1975, but United Artists kept majority control. WUAB therefore acquired the programming rights to most of WKBF's stronger shows. WUAB now signed on at 6 a.m. and signed off very late at night.


On September 6, 1977, Field Communications bought the rest of Kaiser's share in its television outlets. WUAB and KBSC in Los Angeles were not included in the sale. KBSC was sold to National Subscription TV while WUAB was sold (by both United Artists and Kaiser) to the Gaylord Broadcasting Company on September 6, 1977. Under Gaylord, WUAB continued as a broadcasting powerhouse, and cemented its status as one of the leading independent stations in the country. The station pulled off a major coup on September 2, 1980 by winning the broadcast rights to the Cleveland Indians of baseball's American League. The station also became broadcast home of the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers. During this time, it appeared on several cable systems in Ohio, as well as West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Western Ontario. The station disappeared from most cable systems outside Cleveland on September 3, 1990 , but is still available in Erie. Field Communications was a division of Field Enterprises, which owned the Marshall Fields department store chain. ... “KBSC” redirects here. ...

WUAB remained the leading independent into September 2, 1980. Channel 61 returned to the air as WCLQ in September 7, 1981, but made no headway against WUAB, and eventually became home-shopping station WQHS-TV. On September 2, 1985, WOIO signed on with an entertainment format as well. Both WOIO and WUAB went head to head, with WBNX-TV joining the competition on September 2, 1985. WUAB turned down an affiliation with Fox on October 9, 1986--one of the few long-established major-market independents to do so. WOIO snapped it up, and soon overtook WUAB in the ratings.

On September 4, 1989, Gaylord sold WUAB to Cannell Broadcasting, headed by actor/director Stephen J. Cannell. Though the station performed adequately in the ratings under Cannell ownership, the company was unable to restore the station to its former glory. On September 5, 1994, Malrite Communications, owner of WOIO, signed a local marketing agreement with Cannell, and as a result, WOIO and WUAB became sister stations. WUAB was still technically owned by Cannell, but the station was now managed in tandem with WOIO. Both stations moved to a location at downtown Cleveland's Reserve Square.

WOIO became the market's CBS station after an affiliation swap with the area's longtime CBS affiliate, WJW, On September 5, 1994, and moved most of its sitcoms and syndicated cartoons to WUAB.

WUAB ended its long run as an independent on January 14, 1995 , when it became the market's affiliate for both the UPN and WB networks, with UPN as the primary affiliation. The dual-affiliation did not cause the station any problems at first, as both networks only programmed for a few nights of the week.
