History

WDIV hit the waves on Oct 23, 1946 as WWDT to test its signals. Regular programming of the channel started on March 4, 1947. WWDT was the maiden service in Michigan and the 10th station in US to sign on air. It was launched under the original ownership of Evening News Association which also held Detroit News, a magazine and WWJ 950 AM radio (later WXYT-FM). The callsign was changed to WWJ-TV to align the television with its radio sibling on May 15, 1947.
