Profile America — Monday, August 20th. The nation’s first radio station licensed by the federal government began broadcasting in Detroit on this date in 1920 — station 8MK, now operating as WWJ. The station was owned by the Detroit News, and operated with an amateur license, which in 1922 was changed to commercial. The first station to receive a commercial license was KDKA in Pittsburgh, which began broadcasting in October of 1920. The new medium grew rapidly. In 1922, there were 30 radio stations, but by the following year, there were 556. Now, there are over 15,500 AM and FM radio stations, along with some 1,900 low-power FM facilities.
