From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
WTNC-LP is a low-powered television station in the Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina television market. Licensed to Durham, WTNC-LP is affiliated with the Spanish-language Telefutura network. Owned by Univision and operated alongside WUVC, it broadcasts on UHF channel 26. Originally licensed to be low power W59CR, the station signed on in late 1997 as WIWW-LP from a tower near the corner of NC 98 and US 70 By-Pass in East Durham. Broadcasting then on channel 59, the station rebroadcast WACN-LP 34 from Apex, a Christian TV station. When WUNC-TV needed UHF channel 59 for digital, WIWW vacated the channel for UHF 26 on the WNCU-FM tower off Rose of Sharon Road in NW Durham. It was home shopping for a while, then dark, then Telefutura.
In addition to its low-powered signal WTNC-LP can be seen on Time Warner channel 17 in Raleigh/Fayetteville and channel 20 in Durham/Chapel Hill. WTNC-LP is also now carried on WUVC digital channel 2.
In 2007, WTNC began simulcasting as a digital subchannel of sister-station WUVC in Fayetteville and other southern regions of the viewing area.
