Lafayette, Ind. Gets Its Own ABC Affiliate

Lafayette, Ind.-based Star City Broadcasting is launching the market’s first local ABC affiliate—the group’s third new station in less than a year.

WPBY, branded ABC 49, will light up July 1 with the network’s full slate of programming, in addition to local newscasts, ABC said.

In October 2016, Star City launched the market’s first Fox affiliate, WPBI-LD, a digital low-powered station, and an NBC affiliate, WPBI-LD2, on its subchannel.

Lafayette has traditionally been served by affiliates in neighboring Indianapolis.
