A magnet from WOOD, a News/Talker in Grand Rapids, Michigan which went on the air in 1924 as WEBK. The station's original owners we backed by the Furniture Manufacturers Association of Grand Rapids who suggested a call letter change to WOOD in 1926. The station's mascot is Willie Wood, a cartoon woodpecker who's been in use since 1951. You can see Willie at the station's website.

Longtime 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace got his first job in broadcasting at WOOD in 1939. He passed away yesterday at age 93.
