local programs

''As The World Turns''. At the same time, WTAJ in Altoona, Pennsylvania, did run the program and was viewable in the eastern part of the Pittsburgh market. Also, CBS affiliate WTRF in Wheeling, West Virginia was viewable in Pittsburgh and to the west. KDKA also preempted the 10 a.m. hour of game shows and reruns from CBS at various points. KDKA also produced plenty of local programs such as Evening Magazine, People Are Talking, and local news. KDKA TV also occasionally pre-empted primetime CBS programming for a syndicated movie, local news special, or at some points a sports event during the years they had broadcast rights to Pittsburgh Pirates baseball. Weekend pre-emptions included a small portion of Saturday morning cartoons in favor of syndicated children's programming. Like most CBS affiliates, KDKA never ran the Sunday morning hour of cartoons distributed by CBS as well or Sunday morning religious shows from CBS like Lamp Unto My Feet. As such, a large amount of network programming was not airing on KDKA. Westinghouse had similar practices at sister station KPIX San Francisco and NBC affiliates WBZ-TV Boston and KYW-TV Philadelphia. During the 1980s, KDKA began running CBS News Sunday Morning. '''WTAE-TV''' is the ABC (American Broadcasting Company) affiliated television station for Western Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania) that is licensed to Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), broadcasting on UHF channel 51 and identifying via PSIP as channel 4 (its historic analog allocation). It also serves as an ABC affiliate for the Wheeling (Wheeling, West Virginia) Steubenville (Steubenville, Ohio) and Clarksburg (Clarksburg, West Virginia) Weston, West Virginia market areas. Its transmitter is located in Buena Vista, Pennsylvania and its studios are located in the Pittsburgh suburb of Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania. At various times, WTAE has also served as the ABC affiliate for the Johnstown (Johnstown, Pennsylvania) Altoona (Altoona, Pennsylvania), Wheeling, West Virginia Steubenville, Ohio, and Clarksburg (Clarksburg, West Virginia) Weston (Weston, West Virginia), West Virginia television markets (all of which could receive WTAE as a grade B signal). With WTAE having long been one of ABC's strongest affiliates, both parties reportedly resisted efforts by other TV stations in those cities to obtain a full-time ABC affiliation. Since then, one station was eventually granted affiliation in Altoona (WATM-TV), while WBOY-TV in Clarksburg and WTRF-TV in Wheeling (both owned by West Virginia Media Holdings, the former briefly being a sister station to WTAE in 2001) launched ABC stations on one of their digital subchannels in August 2008 Ohio Media Watch on Your ABC (WBOY-DT2) and ABC Ohio Valley (WTRF-DT3), respectively. WTAE is still available on cable in all of those markets today. In addition to those areas, WTAE can also be seen on several out-of-market cable systems throughout northwestern and central Pennsylvania, and several locations in eastern and northeast Ohio. The biggest obstacle, however, would be Pittsburgh-based Westinghouse Electric (Westinghouse Electric (1886)), owners of pioneer radio station KDKA (KDKA (AM)). Westinghouse wanted to get a TV station signed on in Pittsburgh to compete with DuMont (DuMont Television Network) O&O (Owned-and-operated station) WDTV—which at the time had a ''de facto monopoly'' in what was then the nation's sixth-largest TV market—and was growing impatient with the "freeze" of television licenses. The station had launched WBZ-TV in Boston in 1948 and would purchase WPTZ-TV (now KYW-TV) in Philadelphia in 1952, but was unable to secure a license for a TV station in its home market. By the time the "freeze" was lifted in 1952, the FCC granted smaller cities such as Steubenville, Ohio; Wheeling, West Virginia; Clarksburg, West Virginia; Johnstown, Pennsylvania; Altoona, Pennsylvania; Youngstown, Ohio; and Erie, Pennsylvania the chance to sign on before more stations in Pittsburgh signed on. All of those cities shared the VHF (Very high frequency) band with Pittsburgh, and only Youngstown would ultimately end up as a UHF island (Ultra high frequency#UHF islands). By 2002, WPGH was no longer running cartoons after Fox Kids was removed from the weekday lineup around the country. It focused now on court shows, talk shows, reality shows, and off-network sitcoms along with Fox programming. Sinclair and the network cut a six-year affiliation contract extension for Sinclair's nineteen Fox affiliates. As a result, the affiliation will remain on WPGH through at least March 2012. Until 2007, the channel served as the de-facto affiliate for the Wheeling, West Virginia Steubenville, Ohio market. Although it is still on area cable systems, CBS affiliate WTRF-TV added a primary Fox and secondary MyNetworkTV affiliate on a new second (WTRF-DT2) digital subchannel. It can also be seen in some parts of the Clarksburg (Clarksburg, West Virginia) Weston (Weston, West Virginia) Morgantown, West Virginia market even though that area is served by WVFX.

Wheeling, West Virginia

'''Wheeling''' is a city in the State (U.S. state) of West Virginia and is the county seat of Ohio County (Ohio County, West Virginia), but also has some subdivisions in Marshall County (Marshall County, West Virginia).

Thanks to its location along major transportation routes, including the Ohio River, National Road, and the B&O Railroad, Wheeling became a manufacturing center in the late Nineteenth Century. After experiencing the closing of industry and substantial population loss following World War II, Wheeling's major industries now include healthcare, education, law & legal services, entertainment & tourism, and energy.

Wheeling is the county seat of Ohio County and the principal city of the Wheeling Metropolitan Statistical Area (Wheeling metropolitan area). As of the 2010 census, the Wheeling, WV MSA had a population of 147,950 and the city had a population of 28,486.
