    There are a handful that come to mind, most from the 50's but some into the 60's and 70's:

    WVEC-TV 13/ABC (1490) - Hampton, VA
    WBIR-TV 10/CBS (1240) - Knoxville, TN
    WSTV-TV 9/CBS (1340) - Steubenville, OH
    WRAL-TV 5/CBS (1240) - Raleigh, NC
    WJBK-TV 2/CBS (1490) - Detroit, MI
    KAKE-TV 10/ABC (1240) - Wichita, KS
    KROC-TV 8/NBC (1340) - Rochester, MN
    KLBK-TV 13/CBS (1340) - Lubbock, TX

    ..an even smaller set would be AM daytimers that had TV affiliates such as:

    WOI-TV 5/ABC (640) - Ames, IA
    WKNX-TV 21/CBS (1210) - Saginaw, MI

    These come to mind---WNOK/19/1230AM Columbia SC (now WLTX/19)
    WCOS/25/1400AM Columbia SC (now WOLO/25)

    and of course the famous KXGN/5/1400AM Glendive MT.

    and the even more famous WAIM/40/1230AM Anderson SC (now WMYA/40)
