WBOY-TV is the NBC-affiliated television station for North-Central West Virginia that is licensed to Clarksburg. It broadcasts a high definitiondigital signal on VHF channel 12 from a transmitter east of downtown and U.S. 50. Owned by West Virginia Media Holdings, the station has studios on West Pike Street in Downtown Clarksburg. Syndicated programming on WBOY includes: Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune, Oprah, and Dr. Phil. It identifies on-air as "Clarksburg/Fairmont/Morgantown" even though the third city is considered part of the Pittsburghmarket. This is because it operates a bureau in Morgantown which makes it the only commercial station to have facilities there.

Digital programming

WBOY operates the area's ABC affiliate on a second digital subchannel. Known on-air as Your ABC, this can also be seen on Time Warnerchannel 14. It is offered on all cable systems in the Clarksburg/Weston DMA. It is also the only ABC affiliate offerd in the DMA on Dish Network and DirectTV. Syndicated programming on WBOY-DT2 includes: Two and a Half Men, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Nancy Grace.

History

The statiom was launched November 17, 1957. It was the second television station in its small market. WBOY was originally intended to be the ABC affiliate for all of North-Central West Virginia. However the area's intended NBC affiliate, Parkersburg's WTAP-TV, did not have a signal strong enough to reach Clarksburg and Weston. North-Central West Virginia is a very rugged dissected plateau and WTAP's analog signal on UHF channel 15 was not strong enough to carry across the terrain. After it became clear that Parkersburg and Clarksburg were going to be separate markets, WBOY joined NBC and remains with the network to this day. However, it retained a secondary ABC affiliation for many years. In 2001, Hearst Television (owner of Pittsburgh's WTAE-TV) acquired WBOY along with ABC affiliate WMUR-TV inManchester, New Hampshire from Imes Communications of Mississippi.

Hearst's acquisition of WBOY was finalized on April 30 of that year. Almost immediately, the company sold WBOY to West Virginia Media Holdings (which was creating a statewide "network" of stations to share resources) in September of that year with the sale closing on December 13. It is the only primary station owned by the company to not be affiliated with CBS as well as the only one that leads its market ratings. Along with sister station WTRF-TVin Wheeling, WBOY launched a new second digital subchannel with ABC programming on August 1, 2008 bringing shows from that network back to the station. Previously, both the Clarksburg/Weston/Fairmont and Wheeling/Steubenville, Ohio markets were served by WTAE as the de facto affiliate while WDTV aired selected ABC sports programming. WBOY shut down its analog signal on February 17, 2009 continuing digital broadcasts on channel 12. [1]

News operation

The company produces a half-hour newscast called West Virginia Tonight Live that originates from the Morgantown newsroom. It airs weeknights at 5:30 simultaneously on WBOY, WTRF, and WVNS-TV as well as being simulcasted on IndependentWJAL in Hagerstown, Maryland. When WBOY-DT2 launched, it resulted in the debut of the market's first weeknight 7 o'clock newscast. Known as 12 News Live on ABC, it broadcasts exclusively on the ABC station. Otherwise, WBOY-DT2 simulcasts the weekday editions of 12 News at 6 a.m., noon, 6, and 11 p.m. It does not simulcast weekend broadcasts from the main channel. In addition, there is a public affairs program called Decision Makers. Hosted by company president and CEO, Bray Cary, it airs on Sunday mornings at 8 on all West Virginia Media Holdings stations. In another arrangement between all of the company channels, weekend newscasts originate from WOWK's facilities on 5th Avenue in DowntownHuntington.

After being acquired by West Virginia Media Holdings, the station upgraded its news operation and built secondary studios in Morgantown on Scott Avenue. A major emphasis was placed on news from that town in the hopes of increasing ratings and thus getting the town reassigned to the Clarksburg/Fairmont market. The move made WBOY the highest rated station in Monongalia County according to Nielsen ratings beating even Pittsburgh stations. The channel produces a large amount of sports content relative to West Virginia University, located in that town, for use by the other member stations. Today, it is the only West Virginia Media Holdings station to have the lead in local news ratings in its respective market.

History of WBOY-TV, Clarksburg

About 1965. Photo courtesy of Eric McGuire.

The following article was supplied by the station.

WBOY-TV, Channel 12, was the first television station in the Clarksburg market and probably the only TV station in the nation in a market where a cable company (one of the largest in the country at that time) preceded the TV station.

Originating its first broadcast in November, 1957, the license was granted to the Friendly Group...the corporation name later changed to Rust Craft Broadcasting under the same ownership with the late George Clinton as manager. Harry S. Brown (also deceased), as chief engineer; Peter Lyman, news director; and Robert W. Toothman, program director, both deceased; Milt Furner, news photographer (retired).

In 1959, Roger Garrett, now retired, became the general manager and remained in that capacity through the succeeding two changes in ownership.

It was in 1963 that the Fortnightly Corporation bought both the TV and radio stations holding them through 1969.

In 1970 the owners of the local cable system took over ownership of WBOY-TV as the Northern West Virginia Television Broadcasting Corporation in a compromise deal with Rustcraft over a non-duplication landmark court battle. The major stockholders of the new corporation were Count Max and Mrs. (Marion) Ascoli, Nathan Levin and John Borghi.

In December 1976, WBOY-TV was acquired by Commercial Dispatch, Mr. Birney Imes, major stockholder. Joseph “Skip” Simms became manager and held that position until 1982 when Stanley T. Siegal took over as general manager/vice president, a position he holds today. "Skip" Simms was Vice President of the West Virginia Broadcasters Association at the time he moved from West Virginia. Stan Siegal has served a two-year term on the WVBA Board of Directors.

Joseph Wright, the current chief engineer has been with WBOY-TV since the beginning having also held the same position with the originating radio station, WBLK, on the air in 1939. The current program director is Frances Basile who has been with the station since 1960.

In addition to newscasts, a few of the live programs telecast when originally put on the air were: Boyland Bandstand, a teen dance program with records & live music and guests; Junior Auction; "Uncle Pete", children's show; Around & About Central West Virginia, interviews; Videoscope, news/talk show; Crippled Children's Live Telethon in the studios, guests included Virginia Graham, The Cisco Kid, Tommy Leonetti, Eddie Bracken; Live Fashion Shows; Live Miss West Virginia Pageant; Live College Quiz program ala G E College Bowl.

WBOY-TV in 1960 also did first live remote TV show from Carmichael Auditorium for the Home Show, with Arlene Francis as special guest.

Three former employees now on the national scene are: Brenda Curtis-Heiken, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture Public Affairs Specialist-Radio/TV; Jay Randolph, currently sportscaster with NBC; and Mayf Nutter, now in Hollywood and who has also been seen in a number of national television shows.

Currently, WBOY-TV has been winner of seven (7) Associated Press Broadcast Awards (1986) including Best Newscast, Best Investigative Reporting, Best Public Affairs, Best Coverage of Spot News, and Best Sports Special.

WBOY-TV-12 (celebrating its 30th anniversary in 1987) maintains a full time news bureau in Fairmont and Morgantown with a full-time bureau in Charleston during legislative sessions.

Additional Notes

According to various sources, WBOY-TV began broadcasting on Nov. 17, 1957.

John Cooper writes that for two years he did a daily kids show, Johnny Mountain, beginning when WBOY-TV went on the air. He did magic and had a studio audience of children. Cooper left to go to WDTV and Pete Lyman took over the time period as Uncle Pete. Cooper also says that John Peters was at WBOY-TV with him when the station opened. Peters later became station manager of WDTV. Photographer Milt Furner, who played Santa Claus at the station, took a photo of John F. Kennedy waiting to be interviewed in the WBOY-TV studios; the photo was displayed in the Channel 12 hallway for many years.

The 1961-62 Broadcasting Yearbook shows the licensee as WSTV Inc. (original owner), part of Friendly Group Stations. Personnel are: Jack Berkman, president; John Laux, executive vice president; Robert O. Runnerstrom, managing director; Roger Garrett, general manager; Robert Toothman, program director; James Valentine, program manager; Peter Lyman, news director; Harry Brown, chief engineer.

On March 11, 1964, the FCC approved the transfer of the station from Rust Craft Broadcasting to Northern West Virginia TV Broadcasting Co.

The 1977 Television Factbook shows the ownership as Northern West Virginia TV Broadcasting Co. Ownership: Nathan W. Levin, president and treasurer, 10%; Marion R. Ascoli, vice president, 80%; Max Ascoli, vice president, 10%. Personnel: Nathan W. Levin, president, John J. Borghi, vice president, Roger Garrett, managing director and film buyer; Bob Toothman, program director; Joe Wright, chief engineer.
