History

An earlier independent station with call letters WUBC had operated on channel 48 in Greensboro during the late 1960s, but went dark. The outrageously crowded Woodstock festival epitomized the popular antiwar movement of the 60s. ...


The current incarnation of the station signed on in 1981 as WGGT-TV, running a general entertainment format featuring cartoons, old movies, classic sitcoms, religious shows, and CBS shows preempted by WFMY-TV. It was owned locally by Guilford Broadcasting. The station was initially profitable, but it had fallen on hard times by 1987. It filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy, but stayed on the air with the same format, albeit with far more barter programming. 1981 (MCMLXXXI) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... CBS (formerly an acronym for Columbia Broadcasting System, the former legal name of the network) is one of the largest television networks, and formerly one of the largest radio networks, in the United States. ... WFMY-TV, WFMY, News2, is the CBS station for the Greensboro–High Point–Winston-Salem, North Carolina designated market area. ... 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Chapter 11 is a chapter of the United States Bankruptcy Code which governs the process of reorganization under the bankruptcy laws of the United States. ...


The financial woes at the station continued, and it was close to filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy in 1991. However, Act III Broadcasting, owner of Fox affiliate WNRW (now WXLV), stepped in and bought WGGT's programming. It consolidated the programming into WNRW's lineup, resulting in a strong combined signal with 60% overlap in the market known as the "Piedmont Superstation." Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code governs the process of liquidation under the bankruptcy laws of the United States. ... 1991 (MCMXCI) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The Fox Broadcasting Company, usually referred to as just Fox (the company itself prefers the capitalized version FOX), is a television network in the United States. ...


The simulcast continued after Act III was bought by Abry in 1993. WNRW/WGGT took secondary UPN affiliation in January 1995, and became the market's ABC affiliate in September of that year, after WGHP dropped the ABC affiliation and became a Fox station. 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar and marked the Beginning of the International Decade to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination (1993-2003). ... UPN (which originally stood for the United Paramount Network) is a television network in the United States, owned by CBS Corporation, which also owns the more widespread CBS network. ... 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... WGHP (FOX8) is the FOX television station which serves the Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem, North Carolina DMA. It is licensed to High Point and owned and operated by the Fox Broadcasting Company. ...


In 1996, Abry merged with Sinclair, and Glencairn bought WGGT from Guiliford Broadcasters. The simulcast was discontinued, and the two stations entered into a local marketing agreement instead. However, since 90 percent of Glencairn's stock was owned by Sinclair's founders, the Smith family, Sinclair effectively owned both stations. WGGT then became a UPN affiliate, and changed its call letters to WUPN-TV that year. The station was purchased outright by Sinclair in 2001. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...

In January 2006, UPN and The WB announced that they will merge into a new network, The CW. Sinclair decided that all of its UPN and WB affiliates would join the new network My Network TV, except for one each in those markets where they own both UPN and WB affiliates. This cleared the way for WTWB to take The CW affiliation. On June 19th of 2006, WUPN changed its call letters to WMYV in anticipation of this affiliation switch. 2006 (MMVI) is a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
