About WDAY TVWDAY-TV debuted in 1953 as North Dakota's second television station (after KCJB-TV, now KXMC-TV in Minot) and the first in Fargo and the eastern portion of the state. It was controlled by a group of Fargo investors, the most powerful of whom was Norman Black, the owner and publisher of The Forum. In 1958, Black purchased the remaining shares.
When it first began broadcasting in 1953, it was an NBC affiliate. In 1983, WDAY switched affiliations and became an ABC affiliate.
WDAY-TV serves the southern section of the Fargo-Grand Forks market, while WDAZ serves the northern portion.
