History

WLUK debuted as WMBV-TV on Sep 11, 1954 and was licensed to Marinette, Wisconsin. It was originally owned by William Walker who constructed it from the failed assets of Oshkosh-based ABC affiliate that operated on Ch 48. Walker in 1958 traded his asset to Morgan Murphy. In 1959, the city of license was changed to Green Bay and calls were changed to WLUK-TV on Aug 22, 1959. It then started broadcasting form a new transmitter tower in Green Bay. Before the relocation of transmitting facilities, it swapped the affiliation with WFRV and became an ABC service. It in 1959 became the first station to air color programming of the network in 1959 and started broadcasting colored version of local programming in 1965. The channel was then purchased by Post Corporation in 1965. The studios were shifted to Highland Avenue (later Lombardi Avenue in 1968) in 1966. It in 1983 reclaimed NBC affiliation when WFRV turned to ABC. Gillett Broadcasting in 1984 acquired Post Corporation 1984. Gillett then sold the service to Burnham Broadcasting.
