WXOW Celebrates 50 years
WXOW celebrates 50 years-A look back at the early years
WXOW first signed on the air on March 7, 1970. From a small building and tower in between farm fields atop the bluffs overlooking La Crescent, we’ve grown considerably over the past 50 years. From one signal broadcasting ABC, we now provide programming over five different channels to viewers over-the-air, on cable, and online.
We will be adding content to this page throughout the course of the year as we celebrate a half-century of providing news and shows that inform and entertain you. We’ll reminisce about some of the significant moments in the station’s history with the many people who have worked here.
We’ll be looking to you as well, to share memories of your favorite moments and memories of WXOW and the people you’ve watched during the years.
