Channel’s Overview

WAGA-TV first hit the air on 8 March 1949. The channel originally worked under the ownership of Toledo. The company (later changed to Storer Broadcasting) also happened to co-own WAGA radio at that time. Although the channel had its primary affiliation with CBS, it was secondary linked with DuMont Television Network.

Storer Broadcasting decided to giveaway WAGA-TV along with its few other assets to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. However, Kohlberg didn’t keep them long and sold them to Gillet Communications (which later became SCI Television) after two years.
Later, after some complications, WAGA-TV ended up in the hands of New World Communications. On 23 May 1994, the company made a long-term contract with the Fox-network, affiliating its nine TV channels to the fastest-growing broadcasting company. Later, Fox ended up buying all the company’s assets and thus became the parent owner of the station.
