Dan Thomas WSMV-TV

WSMV-TV, also known as channel 4 is a television station in Nashville, Tennessee, in the United States. It is affiliated with NBC and is owned by Gray Television alongside low-power Telemundo affiliate WTNX-LD or channel 15. Both stations share studios on Knob Road in west Nashville, where WSMV-TV’s transmitter is also located. Channel 4 signed on the air as WSM-TV on September 30, 1950, at 1:10 p.m. CT. Notably, it was the first television station in Nashville and the second in Tennessee, behind fellow NBC affiliate WMCT in Memphis. Consequently, WMCT was forced to switch to channel 5 to avoid co-channel interference.

Channel 4 has been an NBC affiliate from its sign-on, although it carried some programming from CBS, DuMont, and ABC. Also, its secondary affiliation with CBS ended in 1953, when WSIX-TV or channel 8, now WKRN-TV on channel 2 signed on as a primary CBS affiliate. WSM-TV shared ABC programming with WSIX-TV for a year until WLAC-TV or channel 5, WTVF signed on in 1954 as the market’s new primary CBS affiliate. As a result, WSIX-TV was left to take the ABC affiliation.

WSMV-TV broadcasts 53 hours of locally produced newscasts each week; with nine hours each weekday and four hours each on Saturdays and Sundays. In regards to the number of hours devoted to news programming, it is the highest local newscast output among all broadcast television stations in the Nashville market. Its news department was the first in the United States to receive satellite photographs when it first used them in 1964. During the mid-1970s, the station developed a strong news division that, in the 1980s through the 1990s, won numerous regional and national awards for in-depth and investigative reporting.
