WCSN-LP, channel 32, is a low-power television station in Columbus, Ohio owned by United Media Acquisitions. The station is currently off the air.

WCSN is carried on cable television systems in the market; Insight has it on Channels 78 and 524, and WOW has it on channel 97. This carriage was based on the station's original incarnation as an all-sports station.


WCSN was launched on March 24, 2007 as the Columbus Sports Network (CSN), Central Ohio's first and only continuous all-sports television station, broadcasting events, features, highlights and news on professional, collegiate, scholastic and amateur sports teams in the area. In the first-ever telecast on CSN, the Columbus Destroyers lost 55-47 to the Chicago Rush on March 24.

CSN planned to broadcast approximately 400 live events each year, including Columbus Motor Speedway, Columbus Crew, Columbus Destroyers (home games), Columbus Clippers (select games), minor Ohio State University sports (including baseball, volleyball, lacrosse, and tennis), College Lacrosse and Baseball from universities from the OAC and NCAC, high schools from the OHSAA, Canadian Football, and various other events.

CSN launched a nightly 30-minute show called Sports Columbus on December 21, 2007. It spotlighted local sports highlights, news, and features of the day from Central Ohio. The show was co-anchored by Ray Crawford and Dionne Miller. Sports Columbus ran live at 10:00 PM (Eastern) Monday through Friday, with scheduled rebroadcasts the following day.

On June 6, 2008, the Columbus Dispatch reported that the production of programming had ended and that the business model was being reviewed.[1] WCSN left the air completely in August 2008; by September 8, 2008, it had returned intermittently with its current programming. Sports programming is no longer present on the station. Since then until some time in the summer of 2009, it broadcast only infomercials. By August 10, 2009, it broadcast only a notice that it had "video trouble" and that "this channel is temporarily off-line due to technical difficulties". By September 3, 2009, it was off the air. By September 4, 2009, it was broadcasting a color test pattern with its call sign.
