List of ABC television affiliates (by U.S. state)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) is an American broadcast television television network owned by the Disney Media Networks subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, which originated in 1927 as the NBC Blue radio network, and five years after its 1942 divorce from NBC and purchase by Edward J. Noble (adopting its current name the following year), expanded into television in April 1948. As of March 2015, the network currently has eight owned-and-operated stations, and current affiliation agreements with 238 other television stations.[1]

This article is a listing of current ABC affiliates in the continental United States and U.S. possessions (including subchannel affiliates, satellite stations and select low-power translators), arranged alphabetically by state, and based on the station's city of license, and followed in parentheses by the Designated Market Area if it differs from the city of license. There are links to and articles on each of the stations, describing their histories, local programming and technical information, such as broadcast frequencies.

The station's advertised channel number follows the call letters. In most cases, this is their virtual channel (PSIP) number.

Stations listed in boldface are owned and operated by ABC through its subsidiary ABC Owned Television Stations.

  2. ^ WWSB serves southern portions of the Tampa market that did not receive adequate over-the-air signal coverage from WTSP (necessitated as WTSP's signal was positioned farther to the north to limit interference with Miami ABC affiliate WPLG in portions of South Florida) prior to that station's disaffiliation from ABC in December 1994. WWSB remains an ABC affiliate despite its signal coverage overlapping significantly with that of current Tampa affiliate WFTS.
  3. ^ WAWV-TV (formerly WFXW) rejoined ABC on September 1, 2011. The station was previously affiliated with ABC (under the former WIIL-TV and WBAK callsigns) until it switched to Fox in 1995.
