On October 12, WJRT-TV (Flint) celebrated 60 years of service to the Flint/Saginaw/Bay City market. The station signed on in 1958, after a prolonged fight between four applicants for the channel. The Goodwill Stations, then owners of WJR-AM (Detroit) was the winning applicant.
The station has been an ABC affiliate since day one, and was owned by the network at one point in its history. The station is currently owned by Gray Television.
