WQLN NPR first signed on the air in 1973. On July 19th of that year, archaeologists from Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum and the Pennsylvania Historical Commission began a dig in Lake City, where Penelec planned to build a power plant. The site was rumored to have been an encampment of Erielhonan (Erie el holan) Indians.
