Certain broadcasts also air with video ... See more at www.WHAV.TV. The earliest use of the WHAV call was July 22, 1922 in Wilmington, Del. It was one of the first 100 broadcast radio stations licensed in the US and changed to WDEL in 1926. Later, the Haverhill, Mass. Police Department began using the call letters for its shortwave radio station. The call’s entrance locally was conceived during World War II in the offices of The Haverhill Gazette, a daily newspaper serving what was, in the middle of the century, a shoe-manufacturing center 30 miles (48 km) north of Boston. The Gazette, as early as 1944, planned an FM radio station, but had to wait for the end of wartime controls on new construction. In response to comments by Haverhill Mayor Albert W. Glynn, Gazette Publisher John T. Russ announced on April 14, 1945, “The Gazette long ago recognized the need of a Haverhill radio station and has long been in agreement with your premise that a newspaper is the logical proprietor of a broadcasting service, especially because the dissemination of news is the primary task of both press and radio.”
