Lebanon was settled by European colonists in 1720, many with the family names of "Steitz" and "Light", along a creek that was then named "Steitz Creek". The Light patriarchs built a fort to protect against Indians and named it "Light's Fort". The town was laid out in 1753, incorporated as a borough on February 20, 1821, and became a city on November 25, 1885. It adopted the commission form of government, consisting of four councilmen and a mayor. In 1900, 17,628 people lived in Lebanon; in 1910, 19,240; in 1920; and in 1940, 27,206. Lebanon bologna was first made here. Lebanon was formerly home to a major steel mill operated by Bethlehem Steel.

Since its debut on April 1, 1971, it has aired classical music and NPR news throughout central Pennsylvania, including the Susquehanna Valley, which includes Harrisburg (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) Lancaster (Lancaster, Pennsylvania), Lebanon (Lebanon, Pennsylvania) and York (York, Pennsylvania). It is a sister station to the area's PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) member station, WITF-TV. Both stations are based at the WITF Public Media Center in Swatara Township (Swatara Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania). He first went into church work as a Lutheran pastor at Lebanon, Pennsylvania (1883–1903). He became editor in chief of the ''Lutheran Church Review'', which he had helped found and organize. (1889–1920). Between 1903 and 1920, Dr. Schmauk served in numerous capacities with the United Lutheran Church in America. Dr. Schmauk was President of the General Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in North American (General Council (Lutheran)) (1903–20).

Issued By The Seminary And The Alumni Association. 1923)http: files.usgwarchives.org pa 1pa bios psbr3.txt WSBA was originally an ABC (American Broadcasting Company) affiliate. However, in 1961, the station switched to CBS and joined the Keystone Network which comprised WHP-TV in Harrisburg (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) and WLYH-TV in Lebanon (Lebanon, Pennsylvania). The three stations provided a strong combined signal with about 55% overlap. Initially, WHP-TV, WLYH and WSBA aired the same programming. By the late 1960s, while all three stations ran most of the CBS programming schedule, WHP-TV ran different local programming during non-network hours, while WLYH and WSBA continued to simulcast nearly all the broadcast day. WHP ran CBS shows that WSBA and WLYH preempted. These two stations ran programming that WHP preempted. All three ran most of the CBS lineup duplicating over 3 4 of the network's programs. In May 1983, Susquehanna sold WSBA-TV to Idaho-based Mohawk Broadcasting, who changed its calls to the current '''WPMT'''. The station signed off in August and returned to the air in September as an independent station--the first in the state outside Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. It was a typical UHF independent airing cartoons, sitcoms, movies, dramas, sports, and westerns. thumb left 175px WTAJ "TV-10" logo used from 1972 until 1995 (Image:WTAJ_TV-10_1986.png) In 1956, WFBG-AM-FM-TV was sold to the Annenberg family's Triangle Publications. In 1969, then-Governor of Pennsylvania Milton J. Shapp accused Triangle of using its three Pennsylvania television stations--WFBG-TV, WFIL-TV in Philadelphia (now WPVI-TV) and WLYH-TV in Lebanon (Lebanon, Pennsylvania)--to conduct a smear campaign against him. The FCC found that the charges were true, and forced Triangle to unload all of its broadcasting properties. WFBG-TV was among the last to be sold, going to Gateway Communications in October 1972 along with sister station WLYH. The radio stations weren't included in the sale because the FCC had barred common ownership of radio and television stations in all but a few cases a few months before the Shapp case. Accordingly, Gateway changed channel 10's call letters to the present-day '''WTAJ-TV''' (which stands for '''W'''e're '''T'''elevision for '''A'''ltoona and '''J'''ohnstown). The new calls were chosen to acknowledge channel 10's large viewership in Johnstown. Until 1982, Johnstown and Altoona State College were separate markets. Although Johnstown had a CBS affiliate of its own, WJNL-TV (channel 19), channel 10 had long claimed Johnstown as part of its primary coverage area; it provided a strong city-grade signal to almost the entire Johnstown market. Until the mid-1980s, it was also available on many cable systems in the Pittsburgh area because Pittsburgh's CBS affiliate, KDKA-TV, preempted a decent amount of CBS shows and most of the preempted shows aired on WTAJ. - 39.
