History[edit]

The station first began its broadcasting operations in 1990 as W13BY under the original ownership of George W. Kimble, however W13BY was first licensed as a station or had a construction permit on November 30, 1988.[1] At first, it was an affiliate of The Box music video network, and later a translator station of Johnstown NBC affiliate WJAC-TV (Channel 6).

In 2005, the station was purchased by Pathway Community Radio, which retransmitted Pittsburgh's WPCB-TV/Cornerstone Television (via Altoona satellite WKBS) temporarily in a transition period until the station began their own programming schedule.

In 2005, the station became a Class A operation. On May 5, 2008, the station received their permanent calls of WSCP-CA. On June 25, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission change the WSCP-CA calls to DWSCP-CA possibly that the WSCP-CA broadcast lincense was going to be deleted.[2] About two months later on August 5, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission restored DWSCP-CA call letters back to the WSCP-CA calls.[3] On May 3, 2011, the station requested a change from class A to low-power status, and the station's call sign was changed to WSCP-LP.
