History

The station began operation in 1987 as WNEQ-TV, the second public television station serving the Buffalo market. The station was an educational license, and a sister station to WNED Channel 17 (which was a commercial licence used as an educational station). WNEQ's programming day began daily at 4 PM and usually had between 6-7 hours of programming per day. 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... WNED is the callsign for three public broadcasting stations in Buffalo, New York. ...


In 1992, many cable systems in the Hamilton and Niagara regions began carrying WNEQ, displacing long standing WQLN from Erie, PA in the process. In the fall of 1998, most cable systems in the Hamilton and Niagara regions started to remove WNEQ because they were struggling with limited channel capacity and the fact that they only offered between 6-7 hours of programming per day. In the fall of 1999, Rogers began carrying WNEQ on their digital tier for customers in the Greater Toronto Area. WNEQ was replaced with WTVS from Detroit, MI in January 2001 when WNEQ relaunched as the current WNLO. 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ...

The Buffalo market was unable to support two public stations as both stations struggled financially. As a result, the educational foundation put WNEQ up for sale.


LIN TV wanted to buy WNEQ and run the station as a commercial operation. That, however, was problematic due to WNEQ's status as an educational license. One solution was for LIN to purchase WNED/17 instead (which was already a commercial license) and make WNEQ the area's primary PBS station. This was rejected since Channel 17 had long been established as a PBS station, and a move to Channel 23 might cause confusion among viewers, potentially reducing the amount of donation the viewer-supported station would receive. Eventually, the FCC agreed to re-classify channel 23 as a commercial license, and channel 17 as an educational license. As such, the Buffalo market retains an educational license, and LIN was given the go-ahead to purchase the converted-to-commercial WNEQ.


In March 2001, LIN closed on their purchase of WNEQ and converted it to a general entertainment independent station as WNLO whose initial programming included Buffalo's first 10 PM newscast. With the launch came the securing of the UPN affiliation for the Buffalo market as of 2003 when that network's agreement with the weaker WNGS expired. 2001: A Space Odyssey. ...

In 2005, Rogers Cable submitted a request to the CRTC to allow carriage of WNLO in Canada.
