WCWN

WCWN is the CW-affiliated television station for New York State's Capital District and Western New England. Licensed to Schenectady, New York, it broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 43 (PSIP virtual channel 45) from a transmitter southwest of New Scotland's Voorheesville section. The station can also be seen on Time Warner Cable channel 15 (hence the CW 15 branding) and in high definition on digital channel 1815. Owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, WCWN is sister to CBS affiliate WRGB. It is operated out of WRGB's studios on Balltown Road in Niskayuna. Syndicated programming on this station includes: Seinfeld, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Cash Cab, and The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Since WCWN is a sister station to WRGB, the station can air CBS programming if the other station preempts the network for weather/emergency updates or local specials. In the past, it has been known to air coverage of the U.S. Open Tennis Championship. During the yearly Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, WCWN is responsible for airing WRGB's local, syndicated, and network lineup. The station also airs some New York Mets baseball games produced by WPIX in New York City. Games are shown on Fridays nights, Saturdays, and Sundays. The arrangement is in place because WCWN was owned by Tribune Company, WPIX's owner, from 1999–2006.
