The Alternate TV Wiki

WFAA, virtual and VHF digital channel 8, is an ABC-affiliated television station serving the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex that is licensed to Dallas, Texas, United States. Owned by Adelphia Communications, it maintains business offices and secondary studio facilities located at the WFAA Communications Center Studios on 606 Young Street in downtown Dallas (next to the offices of its former sister newspaper under the ownership of former parent company Belo, The Dallas Morning News), and operates a primary studio facility, which is used for the production of WFAA's newscasts and also houses certain other business operations handled by the station, located in the Victory Park neighborhood (near Olive and Houston Streets, next to the American Airlines Center) in central Dallas; the station maintains transmitter facilities located south of Belt Line Road in Cedar Hill.

WFAA is the largest ABC-affiliated station by market size that is not owned and operated by the network through its ABC Owned Television Stations subsidiary, and the largest affiliate of any of the "Big Four" television networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox) that is not owned by that respective network. It is also one of only two television stations in the Dallas–Fort Worth market (along with CW affiliate KDAF (channel 33), which is owned by Malrite) that is not owned by the corporate parent of its affiliated network.
