WTSP is a CBS-affiliated television station in St. Petersburg, Floridamarker (part of the Tampa/St. Petersburg television market). It broadcasts its digital signal on VHF channel 10.

Its transmitter is located in Holiday, Floridamarker. The station is owned by the Gannett Company with studios in St. Petersburg (its city of license). WTSP is one of two full-powered stations with studios located in St. Petersburg, instead of Tampa, along with nearby WTOGmarker. It is also one of three full-powered stations based in Pinellas Countymarker, counting WCLFmarker.

Because its transmitter location is farther north than the other major stations in the market (in order to protect Miamimarker's WPLGmarker), WTSP's signal cannot be seen well in Sarasotamarker, Hardeemarker and Highlandsmarker Counties, and viewers without cable must rely on WINK-TVmarker in Fort Myersmarker for CBS programming. In consequence, unlike the other Tampa network affiliates, WTSP's signal reaches as far north as Levy Countymarker and Marion Countymarker.

History

The station began broadcasting on July 17, 1965, as WLCY-TV after a lengthy court battle that lasted nearly ten years between five prospective owners seeking the license, including the St. Petersburg Times. It was owned by Rahall Communications along with WLCY-AM (1380, now WWMImarker) and FM (94.9, now WWRM). Until 1981 it was licensed to Largomarker, north of St. Petersburg, but its studios have always been in St. Petersburg. The station's first studios were on Central Avenue. Its current studios, originally known as the "Rahall Color Communications Center," opened on October 15, 1968.

The station was affiliated with ABC, but spent the first month-and-a-half as an independent station, as previous ABC affiliate WSUN-TV (channel 38; the frequency is now occupied by WTTAmarker) went to court to keep the affiliation. The city of St. Petersburg, owners of WSUN-TV, had been one of the applicants for the channel 10 license, having jumped in out of fear of losing its ABC affiliation. WLCY ultimately won, and formally switched to ABC in a special ceremony on September 1, 1965. As a condition for being placed on VHF channel 10 instead of a UHF placement, the station was required to produce 20 hours of public service programming a week by the FCC. The station did not have a noon or a weekend newscast until the early '80s.

Early air personalities included Dick Crippen, who originally presented weather and then sports; Marshall Cleaver, Al Stockmeyer, Art Johnson, who provided news; and Karol Kelly (weather). Cleaver was the original news anchor for much of the 1960s and early 1970s, when the program was called Newsnight. Crippen also hosted a children's show, Space Station 10.

The station aired other local children's programs as Submarine 10, Romper Room with June Hurley, 10 Ultimate and This Side Up, and local talk shows such as Russ Byrd's Morning Show, The John Eastman Show, The Liz Richards Show and Murphy in the Morning. From 1966-67, the station produced 10 á Go Go, a teenage dance show hosted by Roy Nilson, a disc jockey on WLCY-AM. Another early local program was a morning exercise show, The Fran Carlton Show. The most popular Channel 10 program in that era was the syndicated Lawrence Welk.

The 1970s

In 1971, WXLT (now WWSBmarker) signed on from Sarasotamarker to provide ABC-TV programming since WLCY's signal could not come in well in most of Sarasota Countymarker. WLCY's transmitter was (and still is) in Holiday, Floridamarker. Tampa Bay residents had to have a special VHF antenna that faced away from Riverview in order to view WLCY. This setup was called the "Tampa Bay Special".

In 1975, former WFLA-TVmarker anchor Arch Deal became the news director and co-anchor with Marshall Cleaver for Eyewitness News. Cleaver was removed in 1977, and Deal anchored one more year until Action NewsCenter, a format similar to WTHRmarker's newscasts at the time, debuted with Rod Challenger, Rick Moore, and Gary Rebstock. WLCY broadcast the first 5:30 newscast in the Bay Area during the late 1970s up until September 15, 1980, when the newscast was moved to 6pm.

Ratings for the station during the early to mid 1970s were dismal, however, compared to longtime Bay Area stations WTVTmarker and WFLA-TV and, as a result, the station nearly lost its ABC affiliation. Part of the problem was its transmitter location in the southwestern corner of Pasco County (all other stations broadcasted from Riverview, in Hillsborough County). It also operated at a lower power than the Tampa stations.

On September 12, 1978, WLCY-TV was purchased by Gulf United Broadcasting of Dallas, Texas. New owner Alan Henry (of WINSmarker New York fame), General Manager Larry Clamage, and news director George "Bud" Faulder began to turn the station around, changing the call letters to WTSP-TV that year and hiring several new personalities who would change the face of the station.

Beginning in 1979, Don Harrison (previously from KMSP-TVmarker in Minneapolis – Saint Paulmarker), Wally Kinnan and Dick Crippen were the new anchors of the Channel 10 evening newscasts. Ratings surged, making the Tampa Bay market more competitive. In 1979, Channel 10 acquired the original sunset logo (which was later duplicated by its sister station KTSPmarker in Phoenix, Arizonamarker) along with the "Action News" format. In April 1979, the station built a taller transmission tower, improving the station's broadcasting capabilities.

WTSP is also a station of firsts. In October 1979, the station acquired "Sky 10," Tampa Bay's first television news helicopter. This stunned the local news community and showed that Channel 10 was serious about local news coverage. It was the only local news helicopter to broadcast the infamous Skyway Bridge disaster on live television in May 1980. Another technological advance was Tampa Bay's first satellite news truck called "Star 10" that beamed signals from far away locations to WTSP's Gandy Blvd. studioa. WTSP also acquired Tampa Bay's first Doppler weather radar in the Southeastern United States in 1980 and was one of the first television stations in the country to use a computer in weather forecasting called "WeatherEye".

The 1980s

In 1979, the station launched an aggressive marketing campaign. By 1982, WTSP had passed WFLA in the evening news ratings and did so until the later part of the decade. WTSP has won many prestigious awards, including the George Foster Peabody award in 1983.

In late 1982, news anchor Don Harrison left WTSP to become an anchor at upstart cable channel CNN2, now HLN. John Wilson and Liz Ayers replaced Harrison as anchor. On January 9, 1983, Sheryl Browne, from WKYC-TVmarker in Cleveland, Ohiomarker joined Wilson at the anchor desk on "Action News," rounding out the station's main anchor team. Longtime WTSP chief meteorologist Dick Fletcher joined the station in March 1980 and became famous for his forecasting during Hurricane Elena in 1985. Award-winning reporter Mike Deeson, legendary sports anchor Ken Broo and feature reporter Bill Campbell, famous for his "Campbell's Corner" spots, bolstered the station in the 1980s.

WTSP was the second television station in the Bay Area to launch an hour long 6 PM newscast in 1986. Rival WTVTmarker had been the first to do so many years earlier and WTSP attempted it in an effort to pass WTVT to the top of the local news ratings. The effort only lasted until 1987, however.

Taft Broadcasting purchased the station along with four other Gulf properties in 1985. Then, in 1988, Taft sold its independent stations and Fox affiliates to TVX, and sold most of its network affiliates, including WTSP, to Great American Broadcasting (which became known as Citicasters by 1995).

In March 1989, one of the first computer espionage scandals in the nation broke, when news director Terry Cole hired Michael Shapiro away from rival WTVTmarker where he was a news manager and computer security officer. Shapiro repeatedly broke into the newsroom computer system of his former employer using a modem at his home - apparently with Cole's knowledge. Both were fired and were sentenced by Florida court to probation for the incident.

In June 1989, "Action News" became "NewsCenter 10" and a 5 p.m. newscast was launched.

The 1990s

In 1994, Scripps Howard arranged for several of its stations (including WFTS-TVmarker, which was about to lose its Fox affiliation to WTVT due to the corporate deal between New World Communications, WTVT's owner at the time, and Fox) to affiliate with ABC. As a result, WTSP lost its ABC affiliation, and gained the CBS affiliation. CBS's programming moved to WTSP in December 1994, in a 3-way affiliation switch that caused much viewer confusion.

The change to CBS occurred on December 12, 1994, and resulted in the station moving from third to second place in the local news ratings although a later resurgent WTVT and competition from newly started WFTS would make second place a toss up for the rest of the 1990s. WFLA would serve as the market leader, until dipping to second after the premiere of the 10pm Jay Leno Show.

Citicasters (which held on to WTSP and WKRC-TVmarker in Cincinnati, Ohiomarker after it sold its other television stations to New World and Fox Television Stations) merged with Jacor in September 1996. Three months later, in December 1996, Gannett acquired WTSP in a swap deal, selling six of its radio stations — WDAE and WUSA-FM (now WMTX) in Tampa, KIIS AM (now KTLK) and KIIS-FMmarker in Los Angelesmarker, and KSDO AMmarker and KSDO-FM (now KLQV) in San Diegomarker — to Jacor in return.

In January 1998, Reginald Roundtree replaced Pat Minarcin as the lead male anchor of "10 News". Minarcin later sued the station for age discrimination.

In the spring of 1999, WTSP debuted "Double Doppler" and it remains the only station in Florida to own two radar sites.

The 2000s

On October 14, 2002, the station launched a new news format and image. A new, state of the art digital newsroom was also constructed for WTSP's news staff.

Logo used from October 2002-October 2008
In 2005, the station debuted "Vortex", a powerful new forecasting tool.

On January 14, 2008, WTSP was the third station in Tampa Bay to launch high definition newscast, behind rivals WFTS-TVmarker and WFLA-TV. Along with the new HD format came a brand-new news set, graphics, and music package. The new HD set was designed by broadcast powerhouse Jack Morton Design/PDG and fabricated by HD specialists blackwalnut, llc. The set was lit by Mick Smith of Ferri Lighting Design Associates.

In September 2008, Chris Suchan replaced morning meteorologist Anna Allen, who had been at the station since 2004. Soon after, Tammie Souza was named chief meteorologist, taking long-time chief meteorologist Dick Fletcher's place after he died from a stroke in February.

On October 9, 2008, WTSP rebranded itself yet again, from Tampa Bay's 10 to 10 Connects, with 10 Connects Network used alternatively. Along with the new name came a new music and graphics package, which is also used by other Gannett stations. The station's logo is similar to the previous one minus the wave.

WTSP made big gains at 11pm in the May 2009 sweeps, edging out WFLA for first place.

Controversy

On April 1, 2009, WTSP fired longtime anchor Marty Matthews due to budget cuts at Gannett. Matthews' termination was controversial due to the fact that the station informed Matthews of her termination by leaving a manila envelope on her doorstep. The termination of Matthews' employment comes after the controversial 2008 terminations of weekend anchor Jennifer Howe, weekend meteorologist Randy Rauch, and morning meteorologist Anna Allen.

Matthews was the anchor of WTSP's 4 p.m. newscasts and hosted the station's "Wednesday's Child" child adoption segment. The 4 p.m. newscast was later canceled, and Matthews' former co-anchor Dave Wirth will become the station's lead sports anchor. Wirth had been a sports anchor for the station for 20 years, until moving to the news desk in 2004.

WTVT, WTSP, and WFTS (Scripps/FOX/Gannett) News Service

In June 2009, WTSP joined in on a news service, a joint venture between FOX, Gannett, and E.W. Scripps broadcasting companies. This will allow stations from all three entities to combine news-gathering resources at general media events then distribute the video to participating stations within the market to use in their own reports. This means that some news-gathering resources of WTSP, WTVTmarker (Fox 13), and WFTSmarker (ABC Action News) will be combined. All other news operations at the three stations will remain unchanged. [69684][69685] As part of this new arrangement, WTSP officially grounded Sky 10 on August 1, 2009 [69686]. This will require WTVT, WFTS, and WTSP to utilize only one helicopter (Action Air One) to cover news events. [69687].

Digital television

Bright House Networks is the main sponsor of WTSP's digital programming.

WTSP broadcasts on digital channel 10.

Analog-to-digital conversion

WTSP shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 10, on June 12, 2009 , as part of the DTV transition in the United States. The station had been broadcasting its pre-transition digital signal over UHF channel 24, but returned to channel 10 for its post-transition operations. Its previous digital frequency, channel 24, is now occupied by WWSBmarker.
