1350 WLOU

Radio Trivia: WLOU was Louisville's sixth radio station, coming on the air in 1948 just days before WKLO. It originally was a 1000-watt daytime operation, but power was increased many years later to 5000 watts. In 1951 WLOU became one of the country's first "Negro radio stations" using black deejays and playing music, features and news of interest to the African-American community.

This is a 1989 news story from WLKY-TV about one of the top five Louisville radio stations at that time, urban contemporary-formatted WLOU. Bill Francis is the reporter. Featured is WLOU Operations Manager Mildred Staton.
