First I've heard of anything different. Maybe it's just a name and not and actual call sign. Interestingly when I lived in New Orleans, they had stations with both W- and K- call signs depending upon which side of the river they were on. This applied to commercial radio and television though. Ham radio call signs use a different system and may also begin with N- or A-. The U.S. also separates the FM band in to commercial (>92 MHz) and non-commercial (< 92 MHz). Makes it easy to avoid all those noisy and obnoxious commercial stations.
