1590 AM WAKR is a News/Talk and Sports station in (W)AKRon, Ohio.  The 5,000-watt outlet went on the air in October, 1940.  In 1945, DJ Alan Freed joined WAKR and played a mix of hot jazz and pop.  A short move to Cleveland a few years later found him jocking the graveyard shift on WJW radio where he coined the term "Rock and Roll".
