Great to outstanding

You can even watch it from New York City through the App. Never been to Albany but enjoy seeing the local events and news throughout the capital region. Sister station WNBC rarely reports about the state capital and I do not like to see Albany far apart from the New York Metropolitan Region.

Take it from good to great

I love the features of this app, but it needs some improvements in the streaming video portion. If you want to minimize the screen to multitask, the video stops playing in most cases and the screen goes black. Clicking on it to make it larger again and play does not work so you have to go through the whole process of turning it on again, including listening to the ads (which are too repetitive) again. Also, it is not mirroring properly with appleTV.


I love watching the news every morning until I go to bed best news ever everything’s I need turn to channel 13 news they give you everything that’s going on give them 10 they are great people Jodi from Schenectady New York ❤️❤️❤️😂😂❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ they are the best

WNYT TV originally signed onto the Capital District airways in as WTRI TV, a UHF TV station with studios and transmitter site on Bald Mountain outside of Troy. One of the original owners of the TV station moved the studios to the site of a warehouse, once used to house Selective Service records.

Eventually the TV station was assigned the VHF frequency of channel 13 and changed its call letters to WAST TV. It was sold to Sonderling Broadcasting.

In WAST Television was purchased by Viacom International. In it changed its call letters to WNYT and became an affiliate of the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).

When Viacom acquired the station, WNYT&#;s operations were significantly expanded through the modernization and enlargement of the studios, newsroom, administrative and computer facilities, and a satellite receiving earth station. In Paramount, another Viacom company, became parent to WNYT.

In fall of , Paramount traded WNYT and WHEC Rochester for UPN affiliate WTOG in Tampa, owned by Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc. Hubbard is currently the owner of WNYT.

After its first year as an NBC affiliate, WNYT emerged with more attractive audience deliveries in virtually every area on the station, both local and network, and the trend continues. Currently, NewsChannel 13 is the top rated TV station in the Capital Region.

WNYT-DT began broadcasting in October The antenna for our digital transmission is located on a community tower, with other broadcasters throughout the Capital Region, in the Helderbergs. When attempting to tune to WNYT-DT for the first time you should locate channel on that receiver.

WNYA, virtual channel 51, is a MyNetworkTV television station and affiliate of WNYT.

Public license information


WNYT, virtual channel 13 (VHFdigital channel 12), is an NBC-affiliatedtelevision stationlicensed to Albany, New York, United States, serving New York's Capital District (Albany–Schenectady–Troy) as well as Berkshire County, Massachusetts and Bennington County, Vermont. Owned by Saint Paul, Minnesota-based Hubbard Broadcasting, it is part of a duopoly with Pittsfield, Massachusetts–licensed MyNetworkTV affiliate WNYA (channel 51). Both stations share studios on North Pearl Street in Menands (with an Albany postal address), while WNYT's transmitter is located on the Helderberg Escarpment west of New Salem.


The station began broadcasting on February 17, , as CBS affiliate WTRI, licensed to Troy and broadcasting on UHF channel The station was co-owned by Van Curler Broadcasting, a unit of the Stanley Warner Theaters chain, and Troy Broadcasting Company, owner of WTRY radio (AM , now WOFX). Van Curler operated the station. Its studio was located alongside its transmitter on Bald Mountain in the town of Brunswick, east of Troy. The station lost its CBS affiliation to Albany's WROW-TV (channel 41, now WTEN on channel 10) in January Logically, it should have taken over WROW-TV's ABC affiliation. However, ABC balked, forcing WTRI off the air. Van Curler purchased Troy Broadcasting's stake in WTRI and returned the station to the air in as an ABC affiliate.

In , Van Curler sought Federal Communications Commission (FCC) permission to move the license to Albany, on channel By this time, the market had expanded to cover not only east-central New York, but also large swaths of southwestern Vermont and western Massachusetts. Not only is this market one of the largest east of the Mississippi River, but much of it is very mountainous. UHF stations have never covered large areas or rugged terrain very well. Van Curler thus jumped at a chance to move to the stronger VHF band. The FCC granted the request, and in December, the station took new call letters, WAST (for Albany/Schenectady/Troy). As part of a dial realignment, WKTV in Utica moved from channel 13 to channel 2. Originally, the station had wanted to take the call sign WTAS (for Troy/Albany/Schenectady) but the similarity of the letters TAS to the news agency of the Soviet Union (known as TASS) led to the use of WAST.

Shortly after the upgrade, WAST moved to a converted warehouse on the Albany–Menands line on North Pearl Street, which previously housed Selective Service records. Channel 13 still operates from this location today.

Despite the increased transmitter power, WAST's signal was still significantly weaker in some portions of the Capital District market than its competitors, particularly in the southern portion. This was because as a condition of being allowed to move to the VHF band, it remained on its original transmitter on Bald Mountain (a legacy of the days when it was licensed to Troy) and used a somewhat directional signal to protect WNTA-TV (now WNET) in Newark, near New York City. The other stations in the market had their transmitters on the Helderberg Escarpment. This forced WAST to build several translators to expand its coverage. Combined with the fact it was affiliated with ABC, the smallest and weakest of the three major networks at the time (but, during the late s, ABC's fortunes would improve considerably), channel 13 was not really on par with rivals–WTEN and then-General Electric-owned NBC affiliate WRGB (channel 6)–until cable television arrived in the Capital District in the early s. In Van Curler sold WAST to Sonderling Broadcasting, a radio company based in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois.[2]

On October 23, , the station switched affiliations with WTEN and became the Capital District's CBS affiliate, returning the station to its original affiliation after 22 years. In , the original iteration of Viacom announced its purchase of Sonderling Broadcasting's holdings and made WAST the company's second television station (after WVIT in New Britain, Connecticut) when the sale was finalized two years later, in March [3] On September 28, , WAST swapped affiliations again, this time with WRGB and became the area's NBC affiliate. Seeking a fresh start and a new identity, Viacom decided to mark the affiliation change with the current call sign of WNYT. It is one of the few stations in the United States to have been a primary affiliate of all of the big three networks.

In , after Viacom bought Paramount Pictures, Viacom transferred all of its television stations (WNYT; WVIT; WHEC-TV in Rochester; KMOV in St. Louis; and KSLA-TV in Shreveport, Louisiana) to Paramount's broadcasting arm, the Paramount Stations Group.[4][5] Not long after that, Paramount announced the formation of the United Paramount Network (UPN), which started operating in January It also announced it would sell off all of its non-UPN stations.[6] In June , Viacom/Paramount agreed to trade WNYT and WHEC-TV to Hubbard Broadcasting in return for UPN affiliate WTOG in St. Petersburg, Florida.[7][8]

WNYT signed-on its digital signal in October on VHF channel Unlike the station's analog signal, WNYT's digital transmitter was located in the Helderberg tower farm with the market's other stations.

On February 25, , Hubbard announced that it would purchase WNYA from Venture Technologies to form a duopoly with WNYT, for $ million, pending FCC approval. Hubbard sought a failed station waiver to acquire the station;[9][10] Venture had put WNYA up for sale in , but no other potential buyers came forward.[11] The sale did not include Class Arepeater WNYA-CA which will remain with Venture Technologies.[12] Under a clause of the sale of WNYA that required WNYA-CA to use a new call sign that does not feature the letters "N" or "Y,"[10] that station became WEPT-CA on March 8, On May 29, , the FCC approved the sale of WNYA to Hubbard, with Venture retaining ownership of WEPT-CA.[13]

Digital television[edit]

Digital channels[edit]

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WNYT shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 13, on June 12, , the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition VHF channel [15] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former VHF analog channel With the digital television repack, WNYT remained on its current VHF channel

Cable and satellite carriage[edit]

WNYT is carried on the following cable and satellite systems within the Albany/Schenectady/Troy market:

^Bennington, VT


WNYT operates five additional repeaters. Until the early s, it maintained a translator in Kingston (in the New York City market). This was first located on channel 63 but moved to channel 36 after the launch of WTZA in The translators were all built because WNYT's analog signal was not as strong as the other major television stations in the Capital District (see above). All stations have since been converted from analog to digital even though the law currently exempts low-power repeaters to conduct such a switch. Channels 18 and 45 are licensed under the WNYT call sign but designated as low-powered.


Syndicated programming on the station includes The Drew Barrymore Show, Rachael Ray, The Kelly Clarkson Show, Inside Edition, and Entertainment Tonight among others.

News operation[edit]

For many years, channel 13 ran a distant third in the area's Nielsen ratings behind WRGB and WTEN. This was not only because it was the youngest station in the market, but also because of its signal reception issues. Under Viacom ownership, the station expanded and modernized its studios (newsroom, offices, etc., including the market's first modern computers), becoming a factor in the Capital District ratings race for the first time. The company also made a significant investment in electronic equipment, including a satellite receiving news truck. Investment in talent increased with the building of its own talent and by acquiring key personalities from other stations in the area. The station also benefited from the switch to NBC, giving its resurgent news operation a powerful lead-in as NBC rose to become the ratings for most of the second half of the s.

WNYT overtook WTEN for the runner-up spot by the lates, and in , scored its first late news victory over longtime leader WRGB. Gradually, the station overtook WRGB, which had lost considerable momentum due to the retirement of longtime anchor Ernie Tetrault, in other time slots. In Viacom's last sweeps period owning WNYT, the station won every time slot. It remained the overall market leader under Hubbard ownership until mid when it lost the late weeknight lead to WRGB in the May ratings period. In November , WNYT's weekday evening newscasts slipped to third place largely due to the station's decision to terminate many of its popular personalities. Two years after Hubbard bought WNYT, it won the distinction of being the first and only station outside of New York City to win a regional Emmy Award for best newscast in New York State. With the re-branding of the station's newscasts from News 13 to NewsChannel 13 in , WNYT became the first station to use the "Live. Local. Late Breaking." tag line slogan which is now commonplace throughout the country.

In the mids, the station began an alliance with PBSmember stationWMHT (channel 17). This led to WNYT producing several programs for the public broadcaster including semi-regular town hall meetings, the weekly call-in show Health LINK (which continues today), and for two years the market's first 10 p.m. newscast on WMHT's then-secondary station WMHQ (now WCWN). This production was canceled due to a lack of support. From until , WNYT also maintained a joint sales agreement (JSA) with Pax affiliate WYPX-TV (channel 55) that included rebroadcasts of newscasts and other local non-news programming.

In , WNYT opened the Berkshire County Bureau on South Church Street in Downtown Pittsfield to cover the Massachusetts side of the market. At that time, the bureau was the first of a Capital District station. The Berkshire County Bureau began to be staffed only on an occasional basis in ,[18] and subsequently closed altogether as a result of the recession, though the station still covers Berkshire County. WCDC (a dark full-time satellite of rival WTEN), had never established any sort of physical presence in the Berkshires despite being licensed in the region before it shut down in (specifically, Adams). With the acquisition of WNYA, Hubbard has indicated that it would produce newscasts on WNYA with an increased emphasis on news from Berkshire County. It remains to be seen whether this will include any new physical presence (i.e. a news bureau or a full studio) of WNYA and WNYT in the local area.[11][19]

A newscast airing on WNYA finally premiered September 16, and is known on-air as NewsChannel 13 Live at 10 on My 4 Albany. The show airs weeknights for a half hour in a fast-paced format and includes a "Berkshire Moment" segment featuring western Massachusetts headlines powered by The Berkshire Eagle. It competes with the firmly established sixty-minute broadcast seen every night on Fox affiliate WXXA-TV (produced by WTEN) and another thirty-minute news show on WCWN (a weeknight-only production by WRGB).[20]

After forging an alliance with the Glens Falls Post-Star, the Saratoga/North Country Bureau was opened on Broadway/NY 50/US 9 in Downtown Saratoga Springs in early In December , WNYT began broadcasting NBC Weather Plus on its second digital subchannel with a full launch coming two months later on Time Warner Cable digital channel In the late s, WNYT briefly replaced its weekday noon news with an hour-long broadcast at 11 a.m. entitled Midday. On April 24, , WNYT became the third station in Albany to launch newscasts in high definition. Although three other Hubbard-owned stations have already been broadcasting their local news shows in enhanced definitionwidescreen, WNYT is only the second Hubbard-owned station (after company flagshipKSTP-TV in St. Paul, Minnesota) to have made the upgrade to full high definition level. The station operates its own Doppler weather radar, known on-air as "NewsChannel 13 First Warning Live Doppler" at its former analog transmitter site on Bald Mountain.

Part. ABOUT THE APARTMENT OWNER My second constant object for meetings in Emsk was Vika's apartment - a burning brunette with an impressive bust. And luxurious forms, who looked the same age or even younger to me (although she was actually five years older: her daughter studied at the institute, and her son served in the army)a very active and curious person.

The location of the apartment was more convenient than that of Baba Sasha, there were no problems with the park and entrance-exit, and therefore the distance of the hostess from the. Apartment itself did not play a big role.
