The Morgantown signal is expected to reach into Forward Township (Forward Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania) while the Johnstown signal is expected to penetrate Irwin (Irwin, 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). During the 2008–09 AHL season, the team temporarily reserved, but not retired, #7 as a tribute to Paul Newman after his death. This honors Reg Dunlop, the player-coach for the fictional Charlestown Chiefs, which Newman played in the movie ''Slap Shot (Slap Shot (film))'' that was filmed partially at Onondaga County War Memorial (War Memorial at Oncenter). Coincidentally, other scenes were filmed at Cambria County War Memorial Arena in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the home ice of the Crunch's former

The Johnstown Chiefs hockey team managed to provide affordable family entertainment to the region for 22 seasons, the longest period a franchise of the league stayed in one city. The Chiefs were a member team of the ECHL, the premier "AA" hockey league in North America, and played their home games in the Cambria County War Memorial Arena. The Chiefs decision to relocate caused a flood of public interest in the sport of hockey. As many as 4 leagues were interested in having a team in the War Memorial. In the end the city landed a deal with another ECHL team the Wheeling Nailers. The CJL Engineering Office Building at 232 Horner Street was awarded a LEED Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) on March 30, 2010.

In June 2009, the Heritage Discovery Center opened the Johnstown Children's Museum and premiered "The Mystery of Steel," a film detailing the history of steel in Johnstown. The Bottleworks Ethnic Arts Center, ART WORKS, and the Heritage Discovery Center are located in the historic Cambria City section of town, which boasts a variety of eastern European ethnic church (church (building))es and social halls. This neighborhood hosted the National Folk Festival (National Folk Festival (USA)) for three years in the early 1990s, which expanded into the Flood City Music Festival. Johnstown also hosts the annual Thunder in the Valley motorcycle rally during the fourth week of June; the event has attracted motorcyclists from across the Northeast to the city of Johnstown since 1998. Well over 200,000 participants enjoyed the 2008 edition of Thunder In The Valley and the event continues to grow in size. Significant efforts have been made to deal with deteriorating housing, brownfields, drug problems, and other issues as population leaves the city limits and concentrates in suburban boroughs and townships.
