A part of Chillicothe history appeared on the History Channel Sunday night.
The program American Pickers featured an antique clock bearing signage from Chillicothe's first commercial radio station, 1490, WBEX AM. The clock was found at a home in Virginia, and it's not sure how the clock made it from Chillicothe to Virginia. When the clock was plugged in, it lit up and began to keep time. It's unknown how old the clock is, but is believed to be from the late 1940s or early 1950s. WBEX began broadcasting in Chillicothe in September, 1947.
The episode of American Pickers "Guitars, Guns, and Gears", will be re-broadcast Friday night, October 26th at 8pm on the History Channel.
