KOMU-TV (stands for Missouri University) was the brainchild of longtime University of Missouri journalism professor Edward C. Lambert, who wanted to give journalism students a hands-on experience by working at a full-fledged commercial station. It began airing an analog signal on VHF channel 8 on December 21, 1953 and carried programming from all four major networks at the time, but was a primary NBC affiliate. Making it the only non-puclic station that owned by Universities.
