WPIX is the East Coast flagship of the CW network, broadcasting on digital channel 11. Its subcarrier (11.2) simulcasts local LATV (a Los Angeles-based Latino digital network).

WPIX opened in 1948 as an independent owned by the Tribune company, who still owns it today. It was a standard independent, known mainly in the early days for Officer Joe Bolton, whose weekday kids show screened shorts of The Three Stooges. Bill Britten was the show's local Bozo The Clown in the 1960s.

WPIX became a WB station in 1995 and was the station that introduced the Yule Log, a four-hour Christmas show consisting of a fireplace with an ongoing fire while holiday music played. Stations throughout the country have aired it each year.

In 2001, WPIX (along with several other stations) had its transmitter destroyed when two hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center, where the transmitter towers stood. The tower has since been reconstructed atop the Empire State Building.

In 2006, WPIX became a CW affiliate after the WB and UPN shut down and merged.
