Original plans called for WTAP to join with WDTV and WBOY-TV in Clarksburg (located 70 miles to the east) and turn North-Central West Virginia into one giant television market. However, this area is a very rugged dissected plateau and WTAP's UHF signal is not strong enough to make it across the terrain. As a result, it is the only commercial station based in Parkersburg. The only other stations licensed to the city are outlying translators of West Virginia Public Broadcasting and the Trinity Broadcasting Network. As WTAP is the only commercial station in the market, cable systems in Washington County, Ohio (home to Marietta) supplement the area with stations from Columbus. Cable systems in Wood and Pleasants Counties in West Virginia supplement coverage with stations from the Huntington/Charleston market. WTAP was owned by Benedek Broadcasting from 1979 to 2002 when the company declared bankruptcy and sold most of its stations, including WTAP, to Gray Television. In late-2005, Gray purchased Huntington's NBC affiliate WSAZ-TV. A.C. Nielsen recently named WTAP as the highest-rated NBC affiliate in the country (even ahead of WSAZ). On April 10, 2006, the station began broadcasting a Fox affiliate on a new second digital subchannel as well as Charter and CAS channel 14. It also began to offer a UPN affiliate on a new third digital subchannel as well as Charter and CAS channel 5. Eventually, Suddenlink replaced Charter. To make those stations possible, WTAP underwent a technical transformation. It carved two new control rooms from space that was previously used for storage and installed entirely digital production and master control rooms. On September 5, the UPN station became affiliated with Fox's new sister network MyNetworkTV. The name changed from "Your UPN" to "My 5" based on the its channel location on area cable systems. In 2009, WTAP left channel 15 and moved to channel 49 when the analog to digital conversion was completed. Newscasts After Gray Television bought WSAZ, there were rumors that WTAP would scrap its news operation and simulcast newscasts from that station. WSAZ has long been available on cable in Parkersburg and its news programs, among the highest-rated in the country, have always covered Parkersburg events. However, Gray itself has never considered shuttering WTAP's news department. The station's newscasts pull in revenue almost as large as WSAZ's news operation. Its news broadcasts have more viewers than many stations in medium to large markets in the country that must share their audiences with up to three other affiliates. WTAP-DT2 airs a weeknight 10 o'clock show known as Fox Parkersburg News. In addition to its main studios, the channel operates a bureau in Marietta. Unlike most NBC affiliates in the Eastern Time Zone, the station does not air a full two-hour weekday morning show, a half-hour broadcast weeknights at 5:30, or a newscast Sunday nights at 6.
