WFAA

WFAA, channel 8, is an ABC-affiliated television station serving Dallas–Fort Worth, Texas, one of the top ten media markets in North America. The station, with its offices in Downtown Dallas, is the flagship of Belo Corp. and the largest ABC affiliate not owned and operated by the network. It is also the largest affiliate of any of the "big four" networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox) not owned by that respective network. In turn, WFAA and CW affiliate KDAF (channel 33) are the only network-affiliate stations in the market not to be owned and operated by their network.

The station is licensed to Dallas and its studios and offices are located downtown next to the office of The Dallas Morning News—with whom it was co-owned from 1950 to 2008—and at the Victory Park development next to the American Airlines Center where the morning and noon shows are filmed. The station has small bureaus in Collin County at Dr Pepper Ballpark, and in Tarrant County near downtown Fort Worth. Both bureaus house a few reporters but are rarely used for filming. Its transmitter is located in Cedar Hill, Texas.

WFAA is carried as the local ABC affiliate to DISH Network and DirecTV subscribers within that market and the sole ABC affiliate carried by cable operators in several of the largest cities in the Sherman-Ada market including Ardmore, Durant and Hugo in Oklahoma; this is despite the presence of an ABC-affiliated digital subchannel broadcast over the digital signal of NBC affiliate KTEN (channel 10) in the Ada-Sherman market, which launched in May 2010.
