HistoryEdit

On January 24 2006, The WB & UPN announced that they would end broadcasting & merge. The new combined network would be called The CW. The letters would represent the 1st initial of it's corporate parents, CBS (the parent company of UPN) & the Warner Bros. unit of Time Warner. On February 22, News Corporation announced that they would start up another new network called MyNetworkTV. This new service, which would be a sister network to FOX, would be operated by FOX TV Stations & it's syndication division, 20th Television. MyNetworkTV was created in order to give UPN & WB stations, not mentioned as becoming CW affiliates, another option besides becoming independent. It was also created to compete against The CW. CBS affiliate WANE-TV aired UPN on a 2nd DT subchannel.

The Fort Wayne affiliate of The WB was cable-only "WBFW" which was part of The WB 100+ operation. That station was co-owned with WPTA by Malara Broadcasting. It was announced in March that "WBFW" would affiliate with The CW via The CW+ (a similar operation to The WB 100+). WPTA decided to create a new 2nd DT sub-channel to simulcast "WBFW" & offer access to CW programming for over-the-air viewers. On September 5, WISE-TV moved NBC Wx+ from it's 2nd DT subchannel in order for it to become the area's affiliate of MyNetworkTV. Wx+ then began airing on WISE-TV's new 3rd DT subchannel. On September 18, The CW debuted on "WBFW" (which became officially known as having the WPTA-DT2 calls). The station then became known on-air as "Fort Wayne's CW".

NewscastsEdit

On July 24 2006, WISE-TV began airing a weeknight 10 PM newscast on WISE-DT2 that was an affiliate of NBC Wx+. With the change to "My TV Fort Wayne" on this DT subchannel & the addition of "Fort Wayne's CW" on WPTA's 2nd DT subchannel, the newscast became part of their schedules. On weekdays, WISE-DT2 offers several rebroadcasts of WPTA news programs. This includes weekday mornings from 7-9 AM, 12-12:30 PM & 6:30-7 PM.
