Charlotte Station to Become CW Affiliate


We're betting it wasn't their first choice, but it was basically the only one they had.

Bahakel Communications-owned WCCB Charlotte, N.C. (DMA 25) will become The CW Television Network’s affiliate in Charlotte, NC, effective July 1. WCCB was a Fox affiliate until earlier this year when Fox purchased WJZY in the market, the fomer CW affil.

“We are delighted that we have this opportunity to join such an up and coming network with even more contemporary and creative program series to come,” said Poston. “We have been very impressed with the creativity and production quality of the original programming that The CW has provided and plans for the new fall season.”

WCCB also retains the rights to televise the four pre-season games of the Carolina Panthers. The station is also the Charlotte MeTv Network affiliate, broadcasting its programming on a subchannel.
