While researching wrestling in Jim Crockett's territory,I ran across this."Live Wrestling" debuted at 5 :00 p.m. Saturday Feb.3,1962 on WNOK channel 19 in Columbia,SC. The call letters of channel 19 are now WLTX. The show lasted one year, ending on Feb.2,1963. I would like to hear from anyone who remembers this show or has any information pertaining to it. Thanks !
