Description: WNYW, channel 5, is the flagship television station of the Fox Broadcasting Company, located in New York City. WNYW is owned by the Fox Television Stations subsidiary of 21st Century Fox, and operates as part of a duopoly with Secaucus, New Jersey-based MyNetworkTV flagship station WWOR-TV (channel 9). WNYW maintains studio facilities located at the Fox Television Center in the Yorkville section of Manhattan, and its transmitter is located atop the Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan.
History: The station traces its history to 1938, when television set and equipment manufacturer Allen B. DuMont founded experimental station W2XVT (whose callsign was later changed to W2XWV in 1944). On May 2, 1944, the station received its commercial license – the third in New York City – on VHF channel 4 as WABD, its callsign named after DuMont’s initials. It was one of the few television stations that continued to broadcast during World War II, making it the fourth-oldest continuously broadcasting commercial station in the United States. The station originally broadcast from the DuMont Building on Madison Avenue. On December 17, 1945, WABD moved to channel 5.
