The channel was auctioned to Smith Telecasting in 1963. They were the owners of WAAY radio which is now WLOR. The call sign was altered to WAAY-TV. At that time Smith Telecasting held a license from the FCC to place a new station on the air telecasting. When the Smith family received the proposal to buy WAAY, they decided to take that instead of building a new facility. Channel 25 was later certified to Alabama Public Television WHIQ.
