Not to be confused with WNYW, the Fox Broadcasting Company’s flagship station in New York City.
Channel 7 gradually phased out non-CBS programming in the 1980s. ABC completely disappeared from the schedule when WFYF signed-on. NBC programs remained on WWNY into the 1980s with some prime time programming lasting until 1995. After that, viewers received NBC programming from either WSTM or WPTZ, depending on location, until December 1, 2016 when WVNC-LD signed on as Watertown’s first full-time NBC affiliate. Fox programs largely disappeared in the early-1990s with the exception of Major League Baseball games from Fox Sports which lasted until 1998.
This created a large “doughnut” where there could only be one VHF license. WWNY was fortunate to gain that license, and as a result was the only television station based in the Watertown market until the early 1970s. This website is using a security service gainlo to protect itself from online attacks.

As told earlier, we tend to mix-up two approaches with respected weights – ping responses with localized servers and direct input from users. This approach helps us to give more genuine status of the given website. 1 Owned by Gray; E. W. Scripps Company operates these stations through an SSA.
Most of the rest of the country (“1/2”) would be able to receive a third VHF channel. Other areas would be designated as “UHF islands” since they were too close to larger cities for VHF service. The “2” networks became CBS and NBC, “+1” represented non-commercial educational stations, and “1/2” became ABC . Our award winning news is often ranked as one of the most watched in the nation. Our stations also serve the area with popular programming and sports from CBS, FOX, and classic television from MeTV.
I find the installed weather app to be more accurate than what i dig out of this one. The original 1952 construction permit lists “WWNY-TV 48 Watertown, New York”, a UHF allotment returned unbuilt when the station requested 7 Carthage in 1954. TV 7 could not be assigned to Watertown as a future 7 Buffalo, some 165 miles distant, held the allotment. (That station signed on in 1958.) To prevent interference, the FCC required 175-mile minimum spacing between co-channel VHF TV stations. That pushed WCNY-TV’s transmitter east to Champion Hill, originally with a different broadcast call sign from Watertown-licensed WWNY radio.
Glassdoor gives you an inside look at what it’s like to work at WWNY-TV, including salaries, reviews, office photos, and more. All content is posted anonymously by employees working at WWNY-TV. Both broadcasts of WWNY and WWTI were set to become digital-only starting on February 17. However, the latter’s plans were delayed to June 12 by the FCC. WWNY-DT’s previous digital facilities on channel 35 were eventually re-employed by sister station WNYF to offer Fox in high definition for the first time.
WNYF currently simulcasts the 6 o’clock hour of WWNY’s weekday morning news. It then offers a second hour at 7 seen exclusively on the Fox affiliate while this station airs CBS Mornings. The simulcast and separate show is known on WNYF as 7 News This Morning on Fox. There is no weekday morning or noon meteorologist; news anchor Beth Hall presents a forecast from AccuWeather during these segments. During the nightly evening weather forecasts, the station features a live National Weather Service weather radar based in Montague’s Parkers section.
