WMUR-TV Celebrates 50 Years of service to New Hampshire
WMUR-TV, owned by Francis P Murphy, brought television to New Hampshire and northeastern
Massachusetts; Lowell, Boston and Worcester, as a primary ABC affiliate. 
Boston had only two VHF stations: WBZ-TV an NBC affiliate, 
WNAC-TV being CBS.  WMUR-TV provided the Boston market with 
ABC and secondary DuMont  service.  

Some of WMUR-TV's local programs had a large "Boston" following, 
notably the Clyde Joy and Willie Mae  Circle Nine Ranch.
The original post-war assignments were CH 1 for Manchester , CH 9 for Boston.
After the FCC lifted the "Freeze" on new  applications for television licenses, The Radio Voice of 
New Hampshire (WMUR) applied for CH 9, 59 KW visual, and 29.6 aural in mid June 1952.
The Voice and Vision of New Hampshire went on the air at 4 pm on Sunday March 28,1954, from studios at 
1819 Elm St, Manchester.  Space formerly occupied by the WMUR (AM) studios, that by now had been relocated 
to the  transmitter site on the west side of Manchester.  The TV transmitter is located on Mount Uncanoonuc 
in Goffstown, the building and tower that once housed WMUR-FM.   With the antenna being 
1,030 ft. above average terrain, channel 9,  had the highest transmitting point in greater Boston.
