EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)- Monday marks a special day at WEAU 13 News. December 23, 1953 our station first went on the air.

A lot has changed in 60 years from the people bringing you the news to how it was delivered. While no one knew exactly where it would go when the station first started out, you welcomed us into your living rooms each and every night.

"When I first came here it was the only station in town so it was really dominant,” former WEAU 13 News anchor John Froyd said.

WEAU started as one TV station but has evolved over the past 60 years to become three television stations including 24/7 weather and antenna TV.

We have also added our website WEAU.com, Facebook, Pintrest and Twitter pages and several apps for all of your mobile devices.
