I'm not sure who was carrying NBC in the 1960s, but I don't think WEZE 
was carrying much more than news and maybe the Jewish religious show 
"The Eternal Light" on Sunday.  I don't think WCOP began carrying NBC 
until sometime in the early 1970s, but I could be mistaken.  I wasn't 
paying close attention to that at the time.

I know that for awhile ABC was on WVDA/WEZE in the 1950s, and after WEZE 
became the NBC affiliate (after WNAC dropped NBC), ABC was carried on 
WTAO, and occasional evening ABC programs may have been carried on 
sister station WXHR.  Also, Mutual was on WORL for awhile in the late 
50s or early 60s, after WNAC dropped it.
