Former Affiliation

The WB (1995-2006)

 The station began broadcasting on September 4th, 1995 as W33BF, a low powered WB affiliate. Two years after WLFX switched to channel 11. For 9 months before W33BF signed on the air, WXXT aired The WB programming during the overnight hours along with UPN programming. WXXT would continue to air certain WB programs that W33BF couldn't air for various reasons. In 1999, W33BF changed their call letters to WTVU-LP. Then in 2002, WTVU-LP becomes WTVU-CA. In 2005, WTVU-CA upgraded their power and the "-CA" part of the call letters were removed. In 2006, WTVU changed its call letters to WMYP because of the new Network affiliation, replacing The WB. There has been talks about WMYP (even when they were W33BF) gathering a news department and producing a 10PM news to compete WFOX, and WXXT but that has never happened.
