From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of affiliates of the CW Television Network, which launched September 18, 2006, following the merger of The WB and UPN networks, both of which began broadcasting in January 1995.

The CW is based around 16 former WB affiliates owned by the Tribune Company (which was a joint owner of The WB along with Time Warner) and 11 UPN affiliates owned by that network's owner, CBS. The largest of the additional affiliate groups are: Pappas Telecasting Companies, with ten affiliates (six broadcast stations, one digital and three local cable channels); Sinclair Broadcast Group, which affiliated eight of its stations to The CW after a reported two month dispute over reverse compensation to the network; and ACME Communications, which committed broadcast stations in all seven markets in which it operates.

The CW covers just more than 95 percent of television homes in the United States. The network has over-the-air coverage (analog, low-power, or digital signals) in all but one of the top 100 Nielsen-ranked markets (Toledo, Ohio is the exception, they are served by cable-only WT05, and viewers close to the Michigan border with outdoor antennas can receive CW from WKBD-TV in Detroit). The remaining markets are covered either over-the-air or through cable-only channels (including those served by The CW Plus) or affiliates in neighboring markets.

KNVA in Austin, Texas owned by LIN Television and KWKB in Iowa City, Iowa owned by KM Communications are the only two stations carrying both The CW (as a primary) and MyNetworkTV (as a secondary). In addition, WTVY in Dothan, Alabama, a CBS affiliate owned by Gray Television, now carries MyNetworkTV on a digital subchannel which was previously affiliated with UPN, and also added a third digital subchannel for the CW. WTOK-TV in Meridian, Mississippi, also owned by Gray, added two more digital subchannels for the CW and MyNetworkTV, in addition to ABC on its main channel and Fox on another subchannel.
