WJW Becomes WJKW-April 22, 1977

From TVNut at Dailymotion..Reports on the WJW-TV 8 changeover to WJKW.April 22, 1977..Incidentally..31 years ago yesterday..This replaces an earlier YouTube post..


  1. I like how they transitioned from the tv 8 evening news to the network news. Just pan the camera over their heads and into the CBS news.

  2. Art Modell bought WJW radio earlier. Since the radio station had the priority to the WJW monogram, Channel 8 had to change its calls. Apparently, they changed to WJKW to preserve its WJW identity.
