Do you remember?
This year, WHK celebrates 85 years of broadcasting in Cleveland. The picture features Warren C. Cox, at the WHK transmitter control console atop the Stuyvesant Building in March 1922. Cox was the founder of 8ACS, which would later become WHK-AM.
In 1922, barely two weeks after President Warren G. Harding brought the first radio into the White House, Warren C. Cox was granted a commercial broadcasting license by the Commerce Department. In 1926, WHK received the first radio license from the federal government, signed by Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover. In 1929, WHK produced a daily program providing instruction in arithmetic, one of the first forays into public education on radio.
Today, WHK is licensed to Salem Communications.
