Video: celebrating 100 years of KDKA Radio

On October 27, 1920, the Department of Commerce issued the first commercial radio station license under the call sign KDKA.

The station launched on November 2, 1920 when Frank Conrad, an engineer at Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company, started 8ZZ and broadcasted the results of the presidential election returns between Warren G. Harding and James Cox.

Today the station can be heard on 100.1 FM and AM 1020, streaming online or by downloading the RADIO.COM app or by telling a smart speaker to "play News Radio KDKA."

Thank you to the Tribune Review for creating the commemorative video.
