After his arrival at WATE around 1958, Jack Wiedemann was a popular on-air host who was also instrumental in moving the station into its current headquarters, Greystone. Wiedemann still lives in town (see Secret History). Perhaps coincidentally, the perspective of this mocked-up photo is from the block where WROL-TV began broadcasting in 1953.
