WJZ-TV Collection - MARMIA (Mid-Atlantic Regional Moving Image Archive)

WJZ-TV Channel 13 is owned by CBS Broadcasting, Inc. and is located in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1977, WJZ-TV News began its Electronic News Gathering (ENG) Library, recording newscasts and retaining raw footage on a daily basis. WJZ-TV often preempted ABC programming in favor of locally produced shows and syndicated content from Westinghouse's broadcasting division, Group W. The affiliation switch to CBS occurred in 1995, ending WJZ-TV's decades-long link with ABC. Westinghouse bought CBS in 1996, making WJZ-TV a CBS-owned and operated station.

This collection consists of videocassettes, films, negatives, photographs, and paper documentation. WJZ-TV gave, transferred, assigned, and delivered to MARMIA all of WJZ's right, title, and interest in and to the collection, including copyright in May 2017.
