WCLE - A History

In 1951, when Florida West Coast Broadcasters, Inc. bought WCLE, it became WPIN and studios were moved to St. Petersburg’s Royal Palm Hotel. The station remained licensed to Clearwater until 1953 when its city of license was changed to St. Petersburg.

Other names in WCLE history include Bill Steis (PD), Bill Gramer (announcer), Drew Shankle (assistant general manager and sales manager), Howard Snyder (1947), Arthur Betts (chief engineer-1947), Richard Gourley (sales), Lorene Dean (women's director), Saul Rosenzweig (public relations), and Harold Legg (chief engineer).
