Channel 13 Anniversary

Channel 13 is celebrating it’s 50th year anniversary. They signed on Sept. 15, 1962 as WOKR. They were then and still are an ABC-TV affiliate. On Jan. 10, 2005 was the biggest change in the history of the station when they changed their call letters to WHAM.  They started broadcasting a digital signal in 2005 and added channel 13.2, a CW affiliate, in 2006.

WHAM has been running 30 second “spots” as part of their anniversary. They revive a theme from the past “Hello Rochester” that was very successful for the station. Below is one of the original ones from 1981. Plus these are links to other “spots” that have been featured of late:
