Television & Radio Links
Would you like to know the radio and TV stations in the Washington area? Click here for AM, FM, TV, HDTV and related links.
Digital television's rollout is well under way. Take a look at the current stations on the air.
Broadcasting history is one my specialties. Take a look at the index to my broadcast history pages.
I have written several short histories, one of which is about the three former flagship stations of the Washington Post's broadcasting arm, Post-Newsweek. Formerly WTOP-AM/FM/TV, they are now WTOP-AM, WHUR-FM, and WUSA-TV. The year was 1978, and many interesting things happened at the place the stations made their home, Broadcast House. It was the first integrated radio and television facility built in the world, but so much more!
And if you would like to link to other broadcast history pages, try:
The Broadcast Archives @ OLDRADIO.COM Thanks to Barry Mishkind!
The Library of American Broadcatsting at the University of Maryland/College Park (aka UMCP)
The National Public Broadcasting Archives also at UMCP.
My research takes me to many of the exciting resources in the National Capital Area. Among them are the National Archives and Records Administration, the Library of Congress, the National Association of Broadcasters, the Broadcast Pioneers' Library of American Broadcasting, the Federal Communications Commission, the National Public Broadcasting Archives, the Public Broadcasting Service, and many other interesting places.
I also research the early records of broadcasting. Many people know about the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), but few know about its predecessors, the Federal Radio Commission, the Department of Commerce Radio Bureau and the Bureau of Navigation, Radio Service of the United States Navy. Take a look at some of my research.
I also do research with various Federal agencies for both historians and businesses. If you are an historian email me with your needs and I will see if I can help you. I only charge for actual costs incurred (photocopying and stuff like that).
If you are a business, email me with your needs. I charge by the hour for serving businesses, plus any actual costs incurred in the research.
