Originally based in Manhattan, Channel 9's call letters were known as simply WOR until 1983 when it relocated to the other side of the Hudson River in New Jersey. In addition to being the first television outlet for Howard Stern in the early 1990's, it is where one could catch the Joe Franklin show for over 40 years until its demise in 1993. Also, they used to show Mighty Joe Young and King Kong type movies on the Friday after Thanksgiving. As I no longer live in New York, I am unaware if they are still doing this.
