There has been a limited amount of posts dealing with TV History..I thought it would be kind of neat to look at the history of a "lost channel" as it were..WKST/WXTV 45. Originally licensed to New Castle, Pennsylvania at it's 1957 sign-on date as an ABC affiliate. . The city of license was moved to Youngstown Ohio by late 1959..by early 1960 the station moved down the dial to channel 33. Call letters changed to WYTV in 1964. WXTV replaced WKST on channel 45 from sometime in 1960 till at least December 16, 1962. The following are 3 sample 45 schedules, WKST Nov. 21-27 1959 WXTV Dec. 3-9, 1960 and WXTV Dec. 16, 1962 (Last day of TV Guide Listings)..The following highlights how hard it was for a small market UHF independent to make it in the early 1960's..

There were also cheaply done local shows..Channel 45 remained silent until 1973 when WNEO-PBS Licensed to Alliance, Ohio came on the air.I had no idea at the time there was ever a channel 45 in NE Ohio or that a channel was licensed for the area..
