WAPI is the NBC affiliate that serves the Birmingham, AL area. It broadcasts on channel 5. Syndicated programming on WAPI includes: The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Dr. Oz Show, Steve Harvey, and The Meredith Vieira Show among others.

Sale to NBCUniversal

On December 31, 2016, WAPI was sold to NBCUniversal by Sinclair Broadcast Group for $15,000,000. As part of the new ownership, WAPI dropped the Alabama's 5 branding in favor for the generic NBC 5 branding.
