History from WILM's website
In 1948, WILM was purchased by the Delaware Broadcasting Company, owned and operated by Ewing B. Hawkins. In 1972, his wife Sally was named General Manager and the station relocated from its King Street location to French Street, where it remains to this day.
In 1976, Sally V. Hawkins transformed WILM to one of the first locally owned and managed, All-News radio stations in a middle size market. Against all odds, the station then started its ascension towards fame thanks to Sally Hawkin's constant battle for an outstanding News product.
In 1992, E.B. Hawkins, son of Ewing and Sally Hawkins, entered the family business as General Manager. Sally remains President of the company.
E.B.'s first task was to redesign the Marketing department to match the excellence of WILM NEWSRADIO's award winning News department. Today, both the News and Marketing departments have reached a level of integrity, accuracy and reliability matched by no one else in the nation!
"Out of approximately 10,000 commercial radio stations throughout the nation, only about 15 are all-news outlets that employ substantial news staffs to report on what is happening in their communities. All but two of those are owned by CBS" One of the two is WILM, "the nation's only independently owned all-news radio station"
