This is a list of affiliates of MyNetworkTV, which launched on September 5, 2006, together with their former affiliation. The new network was created by Fox Television Stations Group to fill the void left on their UPN affiliates after the WB and UPN merged to form The CW Television Network on January 24, 2006. MNTV was then announced on February 22 of that year.

The new network is based around nine UPN affiliates and one independent station owned by FTSG (a division of News Corporation). From March 1, 2006 to present, 157 more affiliates have signed up with the network, bringing MyNetworkTV's total distribution to 167 stations, covering 96 percent of the country. The largest of these additional affiliate groups is the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which has committed broadcast stations in 17 markets in which it operates. On May 15, 2006, Tribune Company announced that it will commit its last remaining three WB stations to MyNetworkTV. [2] All of Tribune's other WB stations are already joining The CW—since Tribune held a minority stake in The WB Television Network. Also, Univision, the largest Spanish language broadcaster in the United States, has committed its only English language station, KUVI-TV in Bakersfield, California.

KWKB in Iowa City, Iowa, owned by KM Communications, is currently the only station which carries both The CW (as a primary) and MyNetworkTV (as a secondary); until October 20, 2009, KNVA in Austin, Texas, owned by LIN Television, was the other. 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, has added a secondary MyNetworkTV affiliation to its Fox-affiliated digital subchannel and added another digital subchannel for The CW, in addition to ABC on its main channel.

On July 12, 2006, the network announced the affiliation of CBS Corporation-owned UPN affiliates WBFS in Miami, Florida and WUPL in New Orleans, Louisiana (the latter has since been sold to Belo) and WB affiliate WTCN-CA in West Palm Beach, Florida,[3] This agreement is surprising considering that MyNetworkTV came to be as a retaliatory move to the merger of UPN and The WB into The CW. Also announced on the same day were affiliation agreements in four additional markets, including Denver's KTVD-UPN 20, a Gannett owned station. In late July, MNTV added WZMY in Derry, New Hampshire (Boston-Manchester area), ending the long search for an affiliate in the Boston market.

On August 11, 2006, MNTV announced on its affiliates' website the addition of four new stations—WNAC, WNGT-LP, WEPX/WPXU, and KMMF.

On August 22, 2006, UPN station KAUT of Oklahoma City (previously owned by CBS Corporation, and owned by The New York Times Company at the time of MyNetworkTV's launch, now owned by Local TV), which was errorneously announced in the original CW press release as an affiliate for that network, was listed on MyNetworkTV's site as an affiliate. Shortly thereafter, an email from the station confirmed the same, and two days later MyNetworkTV confirmed it in the industry press. This officially gives the network full distribution in the top 50 markets. MyNetworkTV now has broadcast or cable affiliation in all of the top 100 markets; ironically, The CW is still missing three markets in the top 100 (see List of CW affiliates).

Though KFDF-CA (UPN) had previously been announced as the MyNetworkTV affiliate for the Fort Smith, Arkansas market (and is still listed as such on the MyNetworkTV website), its sister station KPBI-CA, which is losing its Fox affiliation, will assume the MyNetworkTV affiliation instead; KFDF-CA will instead join Retro Television Network. [4] (Due to the ownership change at KPBI, KFSM has picked up My Network for 5.2 as of Oct 1,2009)

In the summer of 2009 as the network converted to a syndicated programming service, the network lost several affiliates due to two factors. The first was the aftermath of the digital transition of June 12 and the Equity Media Holdings bankruptcy, where several stations which had not completed their digital facilities ended broadcasting and had also been purchased at auction by the religious broadcaster Daystar Television Network. Those stations which were low-power and unaffected by the transition were quickly converted to Daystar, with the remainder to follow once the digital facilities are built.

The network also nullified all affiliation agreements to convert to a programming service, leading Ion Media Networks to end their carriage of the service on September 28, 2009 on three stations and resume carrying Ion Television fulltime (those stations had been owned by another party which agreed to carry the network at the time of MyNetworkTV's launch, although they were managed by Ion directly). This led to MyNetworkTV's first agreement with CW affiliate WLMT in Memphis, Tennessee where that station would only air WWE SmackDown and disregard the other four nights of their schedule in order to keep that program airing in one of WWE's strongest markets. Additionally, Pappas Telecasting-owned KDMI in Des Moines, Iowa also dropped MyNetworkTV and became a full-time This TV affiliate; sister station KCWI-TV, the market's CW affiliate, then began airing SmackDown in a similar arrangement to WLMT.

WTOK-TV in Meridian, Mississippi, also owned by Gray, has added a secondary MyNetworkTV affiliation to its Fox-affiliated digital subchannel and added another digital subchannel for The CW, in addition to ABC on its main channel.

On July 12, 2006, the network announced the affiliation of CBS Corporation-owned UPN affiliates WBFS in Miami, Florida and WUPL in New Orleans, Louisiana (the latter has since been sold to Belo) and WB affiliate WTCN-CA in West Palm Beach, Florida,[3] This agreement is surprising considering that MyNetworkTV came to be as a retaliatory move to the merger of UPN and The WB into The CW. Also announced on the same day were affiliation agreements in four additional markets, including Denver's KTVD-UPN 20, a Gannett owned station. In late July, MNTV added WZMY in Derry, New Hampshire (Boston-Manchester area), ending the long search for an affiliate in the Boston market.

On August 11, 2006, MNTV announced on its affiliates' website the addition of four new stations—WNAC, WNGT-LP, WEPX/WPXU, and KMMF.

Additionally, Pappas Telecasting-owned KDMI in Des Moines, Iowa also dropped MyNetworkTV and became a full-time This TV affiliate; sister station KCWI-TV, the market's CW affiliate, then began airing SmackDown in a similar arrangement to WLMT. (The arrangements ended in October 2010 when the show moved to cable channel SyFy.) And Sinclair-owned KMYS in San Antonio, Texas swapped affiliations with former CW affiliate KCWX, becoming the first known instance of an affiliation swap between a CW affiliate and a MyNetworkTV affiliate in the same market since the formation of both "networks" in 2006. Both of those stations are expected to change their call signs some time after the affiliation swap takes place.
