History

WCAN signed on the air on February 27, 1955 as a CBS affiliate. It was originally owned by Chicago based Weigel Broadcasting. In January 1999, CBS was looking to purchase a station in Milwaukee because of it's close proximity to Chicago and WCAN's signal covers some of Chicago's North Suburbs. On February 2, 2000, CBS made a deal with Weigel Broadcasting to buy WCAN and turn it into a CBS-Owned and operated station. The sale closed on May 8, 2000, which officially made WCAN a CBS-Owned and Operated station. On January 11, 2011, CBS decided to sell their smaller market stations including WCAN to Krueger Broadcasting. The sale was completed on June 5, 2011. Krueger Announced it would sell 11 stations to BeloOne. It was approved December 24, 2015. On August 2, 2016, BeloOne announced that it would trade WCAN to CBS in exchange for WPOK in Salt Lake City and WHUS-TV in West Palm Beach.
