About WJFW 12

On June 1, 1979, the station was sold to the Chicago-based minority-owned company Seaway Communications. As a result, it was the first VHF commercial television station in the United States to be owned by minority interests. On April 15, 1985, Dr. Jasper F. Williams (founder and CEO of Seaway Communications) was killed in a plane crash. In his memory, the call letters were changed to WJFW-TV on October 5, 1986.
