The Karlowa Radio Corporation, in Davenport, was issued a new license for broadcasting and with it they were randomly assigned call letters of WOC. The small studio was the first to reach the Iowa area and was identified as one of 21 stations that were desirable because of coverage area and performance. In September 1927, WOC became a member of the new NBC radio network and still is today. In 1932, Ronald Reagan got his first broadcasting job at WOC as a sportscaster and he returned in 1988 after his presidency tour. WOC is the oldest surviving broadcasting station in the middle Mississippi Valley and was the first to keep logs on their electrical consumption and their on-air programming.

Name Meaning

Northern English and Scottish: habitational name from a place called Copeland, of which there is an example in Cumbria, or from Coupland in Northumberland, both named with Old Norse kaupa-land ‘bought land’, a feature worthy of note during the early Middle Ages, when land was rarely sold, but rather held by feudal tenure and handed down from one generation to the next.
