List of The CW affiliates (by U.S. state)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The CW is an American television network, which launched on September 18, 2006 as a programming and management consolidation of its two predecessors The WB (majority owned by Time Warner) and UPN (owned at the time of that network's shutdown by CBS Corporation), both of which began broadcasting in January 1995.

As of March 2015, the network currently has over-the-air coverage on eight owned-and-operated stations and 394 affiliates available on analog, low-power or digital broadcast signals (primarily covering the 100 largest Nielsen-designated markets with moderate over-the-air coverage in smaller markets);[1][2] and 17 additional local affiliates distributed exclusively through cable television providers. Counting only its broadcast affiliates, The CW covers 98.83% of all households in the United States with at least one television set.

The following article is a listing of CW-affiliated television stations, arranged alphabetically by state and territory, and based on the station's city of license and followed in parentheses by the Designated Market Area if differing from the city of license. There are links to and articles on most of the stations, describing their histories, local programming and technical information, such as broadcast frequencies.

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

Stations listed in boldface are owned and operated by CBS Television Stations, a corporate sister to The CW via network co-parent CBS Corporation. Stations listed with the superscript identification CW+ are broadcast or cable affiliates of The CW Plus, an alternate feed distributed mainly to areas ranked among the 110 smallest U.S. television markets, which alongside CW network programming, carries syndicated and brokered programs acquired and scheduled by the network.

Notes

  1. ^ Previously operated as a full-time O&O of MyNetworkTV; WPWR-TV joined The CW (retaining MyNetworkTV on a secondary basis) September 1, 2016, when the network's charter affiliate, WGN-TV (channel 9), became an independent station.
  2. ^ WISH-TV became a CW affiliate on January 1, 2015, as a result of Tribune Broadcasting (which in August 2014, acquired the CBS affiliation for WTTV, which initially planned to move the CW affiliation from its main channel to its second digital subchannel, after a dispute between WISH and CBS during contract renewal negotiaions over sharing of retransmission consent payments) selling the CW affiliation rights for the Indianapolis market to new WISH owner Media General (WTTV-DT2 instead serves as an independent station as a result).
  3. ^ WCCB became a CW affiliate and Charlotte's original CW affiliate WJZY became a Fox owned-and-operated station on July 1, 2013, in a network swap caused by Fox Television Stations' earlier purchase of WJZY and sister MyNetworkTV affiliate WMYT-TV (which was completed on April 17). The CW announced that longtime Fox affiliate WCCB as its replacement Charlotte affiliate on April 18, with Fox Television Stations retaining the CW affiliation on WJZY in the interim until its existing contract with the network ended.
  4. ^ On October 1, 2014, WTVG assumed operations of Toledo 5 from Block Communications, owner of the Buckeye CableSystem (which carried the channel exclusively and now carries the successor subchannel, branded as "CW13").

  • 5 Local affiliate previously operated as a cable-only channel that was not associated with The WB 100+ Station Group or The CW Plus.
  • 6 These stations serve as a primary affiliate of The CW and as a secondary affiliate of MyNetworkTV.
