WRKO-TV, channel 6, is an RKO Network owned-and-operated television station located in New York City, New York, United States, and is the flagship station of the television network. The station is owned by RKO Television Stations, a unit of the RKO Television Group division of RKO Holdings.

In the few areas of the eastern United States where an RKO station is not receivable over-the-air, WRKO is available on satellite via DirecTV and Dish Network (the latter carries the station as part of All American Direct's distant network package), which also provides coverage of the station to Latin American and Caribbean countries. It is also carried on certain cable providers in markets where an RKO affiliate is not available, and on JetBlue's LiveTV inflight entertainment system and Delta Air Lines through Dish Network. DirecTV also allows subscribers in the Los Angeles market to receive WRKO for an additional monthly fee.
