It was - the calls were said to stand for "Well-Known Bible Witness," 
though I suspect that was made up after the fact.

Later, both stations were owned by the BBC. The *Buffalo* Broadcasting 
Corporation, that is. It was in that era that the diplexed six-tower 
site in Hamburg was built. The duopoly ended in the early forties, when 
the FCC implemented its one-to-an-owner rule.

Of course, the stations came to be co-owned again much, much later in 
their lives...
