Was KYW a Group-W (a Westinghouse station)?

If so, then that "22-minutes" catchphrase was pretty much the thing for 
all their all-news "talking newspaper" stations.  I think KFWB in Los 
Angeles also does the same thing.  

Wasn't that the Gordon McLendon thing - started in Los Angeles because the 
average drive from point A to point B is about 22 minutes?
