WEAU TV: WEAU-TV Channel 13 Eau Claire came on the air in 1953. John's very first exposure to TV was in 1953 watching WEAU-TV while visiting his aunt and uncle as a young child. Their cafe, "The Roost," was located in front of the TV station which was located at 1907 South Hastings Way. Their tower was replaced in 1956 with a 1,000 foot tower. While WEAU-TV Channel 13 operates from a 2,000 foot tower in Fairchild, the 1,000 foot tower is used for WQOW-TV Channel 18. The 1000 foot tower can be seen for many miles around. A very impressive landmark. The two photos of the WEAU TV studios are from 1990. The last photo is the very first tower photo taken by John. WEAU's towers behind The Roost as seen in 1957.
