Long Description:
WICU began broadcasting in Erie on March 15, 1949 as an affiliate of all four networks of the time (NBC, CBS, ABC, and DuMont). It was one of the last stations to be granted a construction permit before the Federal Communications Commission froze new applications. WICU-TV was founded by Edward Lamb, an attorney from Toledo, Ohio who also owned WICU radio (1330 AM, now WFNN) and the now-defunct Erie Dispatch Herald along with several other broadcasting properties including WTVN radio and television in Columbus, Ohio.
