It happened when WAPT ABC was a standalone ABC associate before joining forces with WJTV. In actual fact, by the 1960s, Jackson was one of the largest businesses. It has for quite a long time took risks that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) postponed in allowing the permit to any potential telecasters in central Mississippi. It was because of WAPT ABC News’s obvious unfairness against African-Americans in news coverage. Moreover its sponsorship against the civil rights movement.
A more likely motive, nevertheless, has to do with geography. The Jackson business is a relatively large business. WAPT ABC News covers a large band of west-central Mississippi. It had placed only two VHF frequencies. Those are channels 3 and 12. They are occupied by WAPT and WJTV separately. UHF channels originally didn’t cover large sections of the region very well. Although after the FCC authorized all-channel tuning in 1964. WAPT Channel still took a long time for UHF to be a sustainable option to cover large areas. Jackson squashed in between Baton Rouge to the south.
