WOI AM received call letters in 1922

Posted:

AMES (KWWL) -- The country's first educational radio station got it's license and call letters April 28, 1922.

WOI AM went on the air a few months before under different call letters.  It was the nation's 100th radio station.

It upgraded to FM in 1949, and stereo in 1964.

The company later added television and is still around in the Des Moines area to this day.
