WTNC-LD, virtual channel 26 (UHF digital channel 19), is a low-powered television station licensed to Raleigh, North Carolina, United States. It is a translator of Fayetteville-licensed Univision owned-and-operated station WUVC-DT (channel 40) which is owned by the Univision Local Media subsidiary of Univision Communications. WTNC-LD's transmitter is located on Rose of Sharon Road in Durham; its parent station maintains studios on Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh.

History[edit]

Former logo (2002-2013)

The station was originally licensed to be low power W59CR.

The station signed on in late 1997 as WIWW-LP from a tower near the corner of NC 98 and US 70 By-Pass in East Durham. Broadcasting then on channel 59, the station rebroadcast WACN-LP 34 from Apex, a Christian TV station.

When WUNC-TV needed UHF channel 59 for digital, WIWW vacated the channel for UHF 26 on the WNCU tower off Rose of Sharon Road in NW Durham. It was home shopping for a while, then dark, then Telefutura (now UniMás).

In 2007, WTNC began simulcasting as a digital subchannel of sister-station WUVC-TV in Fayetteville and other southern regions of the viewing area. In 2010 WTNC switched to digital broadcasting.
