History

WYCW began operation on June 15, 1987 as WASV-TV, a locally owned station. It was licensed as a full power station, but operated at low power, initially simulcasting Christian programs from WGGS. The station began to run infomercials and shop-at-home programming in the early 1990s.

The station was sold in 1995 to Pappas Telecasting (which previously owned WHNS Channel 21), and began to transmit at full power in 1996. At that time, Pappas agreed to become a subordinate owner for WASV, with Spartan Broadcasting (owner of WSPA-TV) taking control of the station's programming and airtime. Spartan subsequently moved the WB affiliation (previously carried on WSPA as a secondary affiliation) to WASV in October 1997. The station also began to carry programming from UPN; however, it treated the WB as its primary affiliation.
