History Edit

The station signed-on the air on March 7, 1955. The station has been an NBC affiliate from its beginning (and the only major television station in Texaville not to have changed its network affiliation); it borrowed the NBC affiliation from WTXC-TV's (now WTGS-TV) secondary affiliation.

  • Sometime in 2016, a 17-year old Texavillian female named Kimberly Gibson (born March 17, 1999), came to the station, and pitched her lifelong dream of being on television. As a result, WHQ-TV pitched an original local program, known as Stunts with Kimberly, and began airing it themselves. Since then, it has been picked up by Nickelodeon (a subsidiary of Viacom Networks) for a full-time reality show.
  • Following WSVN's affiliation switch to Fox in 1989, WHQ-TV, along with WHDH in Boston, are the only two  Sunbeam-owned NBC affiliates.
    • In addition, as WTX-TV and WTGS-TV swapped affiliations in 1995, and WTXK-TV (now WTPB) became a member of PBS, while WTME-TV ended its PBS membership to become a Disney Network O&O station known as WTVD-TV in 1999, WHQ-TV is the only station in the Texavillian market to have retained the same network affiliation.
