Before being an independent network, WNYF Watertown was a translator for WWTI CH 50, an ABC-affiliate channel. It used to operate with the calls W25AB & W28BC. At that time, both WWNY and WWTI used to be secondary fox affiliate services. The reason why WWNY was keeping a secondary affiliate was none other than the NFL games which CBS didn’t have rights to telecast at that time.

In 2001, Smith Broadcasting formed an agreement with WWNY News and United Communications to make W25AB & W28BC proper Fox-affiliated networks. Later, the channel eventually flipped the call letters to WNYF-LP and eventually decided to jump from CH 25 to CH 28. Later, it was transformed into WNYF-CA.

On 25 August 2008, WNYF CD got permission from Federal Communication Commission to launch its own HD digital service as WNYF CD on CH 35, when WWNY-DT decided to go back t its original analog position on CH 7 On 17 Feb 2009. Currently, WNYF TV operates as Virtual CH 28 under the calls WNYF CD by using the name Gray Television. It is affiliated to Fox Network and MeTV.
