WKRN is the call sign for the ABC affiliate in Nashville, Tennessee. It broadcasts on digital 27, displayed on tuners as virtual channel 2. Its subcarrier (27.2) is the local weather.
The station first went on the air in 1953 as CBS affiliate WSIX/channel 8 (with DuMont as secondary). A little over a year later, WSIX switched affiliation to ABC (CBS is now on WTVF/channel 5). It was the television counterpart to WSIX-AM and FM radio. In 1973, WSIX changed calls to WGNE (noting its new owner, General Electric) and moved to channel 2, switching with PBS station WDCN. In 1983, GE sold the station to Knight-Ridder and the call changed to WKRN. Young Broadcasting acquired WKRN in 1989.
