List of former WB affiliates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of stations which were affiliated with The WB Television Network in the United States at the time of the network's closure. The WB shut down September 17, 2006. Former affiliates of The WB became affiliates of The CW, MyNetworkTV, or reverted to independent status. Some WB affiliates dropped WB programming on September 5, 2006 in favor of MyNetworkTV.

As previously mentioned, from January 1995 to September 2006, Tribune Broadcasting was an investor in The WB Television Network, along with the Warner Bros. division of Time Warner. Tribune held an initial 12.5 percent stake in the network at its launch, and later increased it to 22 percent; most of Tribune's television properties were key WB affiliates but not owned-and-operated stations of the network as Time Warner had controlling interest in it. On January 24, 2006, Warner Bros. Television announced that they would merge The WB with the CBS-owned United Paramount Network to form a new programming service called the CW. All but three of Tribune's WB stations joined the CW on September 18, 2006, through ten-year agreements. Tribune does not have an ownership interest in the CW. In late March 2008 Tribune announced that San Diego affiliate KSWB-TV would switch its network affiliation to Fox in August of that year. The future status of the CW affiliation in San Diego remained unclear until early July when the network named the soon-to-be-displaced Fox affiliate, Tijuana-licensed XETV, as its new affiliate. Stations in bold are Tribune owned and operated stations.
