WATN-TV first signed on the air on September 3, 1959, as WMCT-TV; it was the fourth television station to sign on in the Memphis market. The station was originally owned by a group of local investors that included future U.S. Senator Howard Baker and his brother Everett Baker (who served as WMCT’s first president and general manager).
