WCJB-DT2 is the CW-affiliated television station for Gainesville, Florida. The station is part of The CW Plus, a special CW feed that broadcasts on cable and / or over-the-air on a digital signal. It is a second digital subchannel of ABC affiliate WCJB-TV that is owned by Diversified Communications. Over-the-air, WCJB-DT2 broadcasts a digital signal on UHF channel 16.2 from WCJB's transmitter in Wacahoota. The station is also offered on cable. In High Springs, it can be seen on Communicomm channel 6 while in Gainesville it can be seen on Cox channel 10.

WCJB-DT2 is known on-air as Gainesville CW 10 and its parent station has studios on Northwest 43rd Street in Gainesville. The station's origins began on January 24, 2006 when UPN and The WB announced that they would cease broadcasting and merge. The new combined network would be called The CW. The letters would represent the first initial of its corporate parents, CBS (the parent company of UPN) and the Warner Bros. unit of Time Warner. On September 18 of that year, WCJB launched a new second digital subchannel to be the area's affiliate as part of The CW Plus.
