Tribune has been a broadcasting pioneer from the beginning. WGN Radio, Chicago, signed on the air in 1924. KTLA-TV, Los Angeles, became the first television station west of the Mississippi in 1947. WPIX-TV, New York, and WGN-TV, Chicago, signed on the following year.
The company has a history of innovation, including radio’s first remote broadcast, television’s first live sporting event, and the invention of instant replay and live aerial news coverage. Tribune TV stations recently installed the latest digital technology to ensure viewers the highest-quality images and sound.
