Channel’s Overview

WTTE hit the waves for the first time on 1 June 1984. It was the first independent and entertaining TV channel in Central Ohio. The original owner of the network was Commercial Radio Institute which was further owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group. WTTE was channel’s 3rd TV service in the Ohio market. The first two were WBFF in Baltimore and WPTT-TV in Pittsburgh. Soon, Channel 28 News was the largest independent network in the region. Mostly because its programming schedule was more of a modern type as compared to the other ones in the area. WTTE has been linked with the FOX since the beginning. In 1996, River City Broadcasting, the owner of WSYX, merged its assets with the comapny, which automatically shifted WSYX under the management of Sinclair Broadcasting.

Changes in the Affiliations

FCC had a rule, according to which a single person can not operate more than one channel in the same market that time. Therefore, parent company decided to keep WSYX and gave away WTTE to Glencairn, Ltd. Glencairn was also a sort of parent company. So basically, WTTE was still working under its former owner.

Both companies tried to merge their operations in 2001 after FCC permitted duopolies. However, the Federal Communication Commission didn’t allow Sinclair to rebuy WTTE. Therefore, WTTE still worked under the name of Glencairn (now called Cunningham). In addition, Sinclair is still managing all the Cunningham’s operations. And by all means, Sinclair is using Cunningham as a proxy to dodge FCC ownership rules.

WTTE is also acting as an alternate network of ABC affiliate. It airs such ABC shows which WSYC can’t cover e.g. local special or breaking news emergency. In May 2012, Fox made an agreement with Sinclair Group to extend its affiliation with the channel until March 2012.

News Service

WTTE has been providing news for so many years. Currently, the channel has been producing 25.5 hours of newscast per week. It produced 4 hours of news on weekdays, 3 hours on Saturday and 2.5 hours on Sundays.
