Willis was also the first program director and station manager.
Its original studios and offices were located on the second floor of the Taylor Building at the corner of Main Avenue and Poplar Street in downtown Sidney (demolished on April 7, 2011) while its transmitter and three towers were erected near the intersection of Russell and Kuther Road.
Before coming to Sidney, Dean Miller (1924–2004) had been a television personality and actor in Hollywood.
He was best known for the role of Matt Henshaw on the Desilu-produced CBS sitcom December Bride from 1954–1959, co-starring with Spring Byington, Frances Rafferty, Verna Felton, and Harry Morgan.
In the 1970s, Miller also worked on the air as news anchor for WPLG-TV in Miami, Florida and later for WDIV-TV in Detroit.
Eventually after finalizing plans, Miller moved the entire operation to the Russell Road site after a new office/studio complex was built in the summer of 1969 where it remains today.
Miler retired from television work during this decade allowing him to work closer with his initial passion, radio broadcasting and the station he owned.
