WIMS is the ABN affiliate in the Indianapolis Metro, IN viewing areas on UHF channel 8. Its call letters define the name of the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway motorsports facility near downtown Indianapolis. The slogan is "The Voice of the Brickyard". WIMS first signed on with affilliate Champion Television Network in 1944 as an experimental television station in the Indianapolis metro area. Then it changed contracts in signing with EBC in 1948, Indianapolis Television Network in 1956 and ABN in 1964. On May 12, 2016, Liberty City based Berfield/Willis Broadcast Corporation acquired WIMS from ABN Domestic Television Corporation and Champion Digital Broadcasting.
