History

WUTV began operation on December 21, 1970 as a general entertainment independent station, airing cartoons, sitcoms, old movies, and drama shows. The station was owned by Ultravision Broadcasting Company from which the UTV in the WUTV callsign originate. Ultravision head and WUTV founder Stan Jasinski had first filed an application for the station's licence in 1963. WUTV was the only independent station in Buffalo for many years. The station was owned by Citadel Broadcasting by the early 1980s. December 21 is the 355th day of the year (356th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 1970 (MCMLXX) was a common year starting on Thursday (the link is to a full 1970 calendar). ...

The 1980s refers to the years of 1980 to 1989. ...


In 1989, Act III Broadcasting (which owned WNYB/49, now WNYO) offered to buy WUTV, and Citadel accepted. Act III then integrated WNYB's programming into WUTV's lineup, and sold WNYB to Tri-State Christian Television (Act III was known for such acquisition practices). 1989 (MCMLXXXIX) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Act III Broadcasting was a company that owned several television stations that started as independents, and later became Fox affiliates. ... WNYO-TV is a broadcast television station in Buffalo, New York, United States, affiliated with The WB network. ...


The sale was finalized in June 1990, and WUTV replaced WNYB as the market's Fox affiliate. Abry became the owner of WUTV in 1994 following its purchase of the Act III group, and WUTV began to carry a secondary UPN affiliation in 1995. (The UPN affiliation subsequently moved to WNGS in 1997, then WNLO in 2003.) This article is about the year. ... 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. ... 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by United Nations. ...

Sinclair became the owner of WUTV in 1997 following its purchase of Abry, and bought WNYO in 2001, making WUTV and WNYO sister stations under more relaxed station ownership rules. 1997 (MCMXCVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... This article is about the year 2001. ...


Up until 2003 WUTV was carried on Rogers Cable in the Ottawa and London Regions. WJBK-TV Detroit replaced WUTV-TV in these regions. The decision to discontinue WUTV-TV in the Ottawa Region was due to the fact that they had to change to Detroit feeds for CBS, NBC and ABC and it was more efficient to source all the feeds from the same city. Rogers London discontinued WUTV because they made a decision to make Detroit their primary provider of US networks due to the fact that the reception from Erie, PA stations was not reliable. Like with the Ottawa Region, Rogers felt it was more efficient to source all the feeds from the same city.
