Origins

MyNetworkTV arose as a result of the announcement of The CW Television Network, which will essentially merge The WB and UPN. Fox Television Stations Group owned several UPN affiliates, including WWOR in Secaucus, New Jersey; KCOP in Los Angeles, California; and WPWR-TV in Chicago, Illinois, the three biggest stations in the network. Fox had bought most of them after acquiring most of the television holdings of Chris-Craft Industries, co-founder of UPN along with Paramount Pictures (which was acquired by Viacom around the time of UPN's founding). Despite concerns about UPN's future at the time of Fox's purchase of the three stations, UPN renewed its affiliation deals with the stations in 2003 for three seasons. That agreement, and some others', pending expiration in 2006 gave UPN parent CBS Corporation and The WB parent Warner Bros. a rare opportunity to merge the two networks.

The CW includes no Fox-owned stations; the New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago affiliations all went to stations owned by The WB's co-owner, Tribune Broadcasting. In response to the announcement, Fox promptly scrubbed all UPN references from its UPN affiliates' logos and promotions and stopped promoting the network's programs.

Media reports speculated that the Fox-owned UPN affiliates would all become independent, or join with the other UPN and The WB affiliates The CW left out to form another network. Fox parent News Corp chose the latter course, and announced MyNetworkTV on February 22, less than a month after CBS and Warner Bros. announced The CW on January 24. News Corp may have chosen the name MyNetworkTV for synergistic means, as it also owns the popular networking website MySpace.com.

Given that MyNetworkTV will air two programs six days a week produced by 20th Television (Fox's syndication unit), its programming is more akin to a syndication model, such as the Prime Time Entertainment Network, Operation Primetime, or The Disney Afternoon, than the existing major broadcast networks.

As of August 28, 2006 167 stations are affiliated with the new network, reaching approximately 106 million households and covering 96% of the US. Ironically, these affiliates include six stations owned by companies involved in the founding of the CW: three owned by Tribune Broadcasting (located in Atlanta, Georgia; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Seattle, Washington), and three owned by CBS Corporation; however, Gannett purchased WATL, the Atlanta Tribune station, shortly after Fox confirmed it as a MyNetworkTV affiliate (the Gannett acquisition of WATL was finalized on August 7, 2006).

On March 6, 2006, Sinclair Broadcast Group announced that 17 of its stations, mostly affiliates of The WB but also a few from UPN and some independent stations, would become MyNetworkTV affiliates in September 2006. This occurred despite the widespread presumption that affiliation with The CW, which at this point was still available in most markets, would be more valuable; however, Sinclair implied that MyNetworkTV was more financially attractive for the company. Some of the markets the 17 Sinclair stations occupy include Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Tampa, Florida; Cincinnati, Ohio; San Antonio, Texas; Birmingham, Alabama; Raleigh, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

One of the stations named in a April 26, 2006 announcement of MyNetworkTV affiliates was KNVA Austin, Texas, which The CW had added to its list of confirmed affiliates a week previously. On May 1 KWKB Iowa City, Iowa, another previously-confirmed affiliate of The CW, signed on to carry MyNetworkTV. Currently, these two stations are the only in the US to be aligned with both new networks. KNVA will brand MyNetworkTV shows as "MyNetworkTV on The CW Austin".

WBFS, WTCN, and WUPL are owned by CBS Corporation (with WUPL set to be sold to Belo), KTVD is owned by Gannett, WHP and WAWS are owned by Clear Channel, and WSYX is owned by Sinclair Broadcasting. WSYX, WHP, and WAWS will carry MNTV on digital sub-channel stations. [4][5] The deal with CBS to affiliate their non-CW stations with MNTV came as a surprise to everyone in the broadcasting industry, especially after the icy reception between CBS and News Corp that began after the CW and MNTV came into the picture, as they refused to allow WBFS, WUPL and Boston's WSBK to affiliate with MNTV as a response to pulling UPN names from the Fox-owned stations that were affiliated with UPN.

In August 2006, MyNetworkTV filled in its remaining gaps within the top 100 television markets.

As a result, the largest market without a known MNTV affiliate is currently Springfield, Massachusetts (market #109). (In contrast, Honolulu, Hawaii (market #72) is still the highest-ranking area without a station affiliated with the CW.) Springfield will get a new Fox affiliate, WFXQ, at the beginning of 2007 (in time for the season premieres of American Idol and 24.) WFXQ could take MNTV as a secondary affiliate or launch it on a digital subchannel -- since it will be a digital-only station when it debuts, and MNTV will not be available on most Springfield-area cable systems.   Nickname: City of Homes Settled: 1636 â€“ Incorporated: 1636 Zip Code(s): 01103 01108 01119 01129 â€“ Area Code(s): 413 Official website: http://www. ...

Due to the availability of "instant duopoly" digital sub-channels that will likely be easily available on cable and satellite, and the overall lack of a need to settle for a secondary affiliation with shows aired in problematic time-slots, both the CW and MNTV will be launching with far greater national coverage than that enjoyed by UPN and the WB when they started in 1995. UPN for several years had gaps in the top 30 markets, and by 2005 managed to reach only 85% of the population. This resulted in secondary affiliations with other networks. In those markets, programs were either shown out of their intended time-slots or not at all. Examples included Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise; when they were preempted, there were many viewer complaints. The starship Voyager (NCC-74656), an Intrepid-class starship. ...

Branding

Many Fox owned-and-operated stations are likely to brand local programming with the My moniker. An example is My 9 and My 9 News for WWOR. A moniker (or monicker) is a pseudonym, or cognomen, which one gives to oneself. ... WWOR-TV, channel nine, is currently the New York City affiliate station of the UPN television network. ... WWOR-TV Channel 9 is the UPN Television affiliate serving the New York City DMA, with studios and license in Secaucus, New Jersey. ...


Several stations have already changed their on-air identities to accommodate for the upcoming network, including all of the Fox Television Stations Group-owned stations. Affiliates have begun to show promotions for the network featuring the theme of "Entertainment you can call your own."


At the time plans for MyNetworkTV were announced, there was at least one station that was using a similar moniker. WZMY Derry, New Hampshire filed a trademark for the "MyTV" name in the summer of 2005, and for a short time there was speculation the station might sue Fox for the use of 'MyTV.' [6] However, on July 21, 2006, an e-mail was sent to WZMY's MyTV e-mail subscribers that the station would become a MyNetworkTV affiliate. The official announcement came the following week and teasers to this effect have started to be to shown on the station. WZMY is an independent television station serving Southern New Hampshire and the northern fringes of the Boston market. ... Derry is a town located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire. ...
