WABM is owned by Sinclair Broadcasting Group, which also owns the market's CW (The CW Television Network) affiliate, WTTO. airdate September 1, 1996 location WBMA: Birmingham, Alabama WCFT:Tuscaloosa, Alabama WJSU: Anniston, Alabama callsign_meaning See table below (WBMA-LD#Stations) The station's brand name, '''"ABC 33 40"''', comes from its two full-power remote transmitters: '''WCFT-TV''' (digital and virtual channel 33) in Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama) and '''WJSU-TV''' (digital channel 9, virtual channel 40) in Anniston (Anniston, Alabama). Although this makes it appear that WCFT is the main station, low-powered WBMA is officially Birmingham's ABC affiliate. WBMA's signal does not extend outside of the immediate Birmingham area. Most Birmingham viewers and cable providers obtain the signal from either WCFT or WJSU. Combined, the three stations provide at least secondary coverage from the Alabama-Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)) state line westward to Columbus, Mississippi. WBMA WCFT WJSU operates a number of SkyCams throughout the state which send a live shot and weather information from that site. Local insurance company Alfa Insurance sponsors the network. There are SkyCams in Downtown Birmingham, Inverness (Hoover, Alabama), Gadsden (Gadsden, Alabama), Demopolis (Demopolis, Alabama), Hamilton (Hamilton, Alabama), Jasper (Jasper, Alabama), Mount Cheaha (Mount Cheaha, Alabama), Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama), Cullman (Cullman, Alabama), Clanton (Clanton, Alabama) and Gulf Shores (Gulf Shores, Alabama), as well as many other cities in Alabama and also a few in Mississippi. WBMA WCFT WJSU also operates TowerLink cameras on former and current transmission towers of all three channels that make up the station. The Tuscaloosa TowerLink camera, located on the old Channel 33 broadcast tower, caught footage of an F4 tornado (Tuscaloosa Tornado of December 2000) that hit Tuscaloosa in December 2000. as well as a tornado spawned from Hurricane Rita in September 2005. The Birmingham TowerLink camera, located on WBMA-LD's current tower, was used during the April 1998 Birmingham tornado , and caught a major power outage in western Birmingham, which indicated that powerful winds and very possibly a tornado was occurring. It turned out to be truly a tornado, an F5 tornado. This was WBMA WCFT WJSU's first major weather coverage, and gained the station some prominence after it had started up less than a year and a half ago. The SkyCam in Tuscaloosa (atop the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse) also captured live an extremely destructive tornado that struck Tuscaloosa (April 25–28, 2011 tornado outbreak) during the Super Outbreak on April 27, 2011. Tuscaloosa Tornado Live Coverage, AlabamaWX.com, April 28, 2011. A little while later, when that same tornado struck northern Birmingham, the Birmingham SkyCam caught more footage of it. The Cullman SkyCam also caught footage of a multiple-vortex tornado during the latter outbreak of the same day, just hours before the Tuscaloosa-Birmingham tornado struck. TowerLink cameras are also located on WJSU's tower in Anniston. '''WIAT''', channel (virtual channel) 42, is the CBS-affiliated television station in the Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama) Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama) Anniston (Anniston, Alabama) Gadsden, Alabama television market. Licensed to Birmingham, it broadcasts its digital signal on UHF channel 30, although through the use of PSIP, the station's virtual channel number is displayed as 42.1. Its transmitter is located on Red Mountain (Red Mountain, Birmingham, Alabama), near the city's southern edge. With a poor signal, the lack of sets with UHF capability and two of the South's oldest and most respected stations as competition, WBMG found the going very difficult. Due in part to WBMG's weak signal, CBS opted to affiliate with two other central Alabama stations, WCFT-TV in Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama) and WHMA-TV (later WJSU-TV) in Anniston (Anniston, Alabama). Both stations signed on roughly around the same time as WBMG, and reached some Birmingham homes with UHF rooftop antennas. But many of WBMG's problems were of its own making. Its newscasts often—inadvertently or not—became comedy shows. Examples of this include mid-1970s sportscaster (and local radio personality) Tommy Charles wadding up scripts and tossing them over his shoulder after reading them, as well as even letting balloons fly around the set for no apparent reason. '''WPXH-TV''', channel (virtual channel) 44, is the Ion Television network affiliate for the Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama) Gadsden (Gadsden, Alabama) Anniston (Anniston, Alabama) Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama) market. WPXH-TV broadcasts on digital channel (digital terrestrial television) 45. The station's city of license is Gadsden (Gadsden, Alabama). The station is owned by ION Media Networks (formerly Paxson Communications). The station originally began in 1986 as WNAL-TV, a full-time satellite of WDBB in Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama). The two stations combined were intended to serve the Birmingham market, with WDBB serving the southern portion and WNAL serving the northern portion. After a few months as independents (independent station), the two stations joined Fox (Fox Broadcasting Company) as charter affiliates. Despite the stations' relatively strong program lineup, independent station WTTO had stronger ratings. Additionally, neither WNAL nor WDBB were able to get a good signal into Birmingham, and several Birmingham cable companies declined to carry the stations. As a result, WDBB WNAL was not profitable. '''WTTO''', channel (virtual channel) 21, is the CW (The CW Television Network) affiliate for the Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama) Anniston (Anniston, Alabama) Tuscaloosa, Alabama market. It broadcasts its digital signal on UHF (Ultra high frequency) channel 28, however through the use of PSIP (Program and System Information Protocol) technology, digital television receivers display WTTO's virtual channel as 21. It is licensed (city of license) to Homewood (Homewood, Alabama), a Birmingham suburb. Its transmitter is located on Red Mountain (Red Mountain, Birmingham, Alabama). '''WVTM-TV''', channel (virtual channel) 13, is the NBC-affiliated television station in the Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama)-Anniston (Anniston, Alabama)-Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama)-Gadsden (Gadsden, Alabama), Alabama television market. The station is owned by Media General. Its transmitter tower is located atop Red Mountain (Red Mountain (Birmingham, Alabama)) in Birmingham. When WBMG-TV (channel 42, now WIAT) started operations in 1965, it nominally had a CBS affiliation, but CBS allowed WAPI-TV to continue airing its higher-rated programming. This was largely because WBMG had only started one year after the Federal Communications Commission required that new television sets include all-channel tuning. To fill out the schedule, WBMG aired some NBC programming that WAPI-TV turned down (such as ''The Tonight Show''). Both stations listed "CBS NBC" as their affiliation. However, in May 1970, for a number of reasons, WAPI-TV became the exclusive NBC affiliate, sending all of CBS's programming to WBMG. At the same time that channel 13 became an exclusive affiliate of NBC and WBMG aligned with CBS, WCFT in Tuscaloosa (Tuscaloosa, Alabama) and WHMA (WJSU-TV) in Anniston (Anniston, Alabama) also affiliated with CBS. Prior to that time, the primetime schedule of WCFT and WHMA virtually mirrored that of WBMG.

Tuscaloosa, Alabama

'''Tuscaloosa''' ( Located on the Black Warrior River, it is the fifth-largest city in Alabama, with an estimated population of 95,334 in 2013. Founded in 1819, the city was named after Tuskaloosa (Chief Tuskaloosa), the chieftain of a Muskogean (Muskogean languages)-speaking people who battled and was defeated by Hernando de Soto (Hernando de Soto (explorer)) in 1540 in the Battle of Mabila (Mabila), "Tuscaloosa", ''Encyclopedia of Alabama'' and served as Alabama's capital city from 1826 to 1846.

Tuscaloosa is the regional center of industry, commerce, healthcare, and education for the area of west-central Alabama known as ''West Alabama''.

While the city attracted international attention when Mercedes-Benz announced it would build its first automotive assembly plant in North America in Tuscaloosa County, the University of Alabama remains the dominant economic and cultural engine in the city.

Tuscaloosa has been traditionally known as the "Druid City" because of the numerous water oaks planted in its downtown streets since the 1840s. Hubbs, Guy (Spring 2009). "Tuscaloosa on My Mind", ''Alabama Historical Association newsletter''. Vol. 24, No. 1, pp. 4–5. The city has also become well known nationally for the University of Alabama's success in sports, and particularly in football. City leaders adopted the moniker "The City of Champions" after the Alabama Crimson Tide football team (Alabama Crimson Tide football) won the BCS National Championship game in 2010 (2010 BCS National Championship Game), 2012 (2012 BCS National Championship Game), and again in 2013 (2013 BCS National Championship Game).
