WHKY-TV is an independent television station in Hickory, North Carolina that serves the northwestern corner of the Charlotte media market locally referred to as "The Unifour." Owned and operated by Long Communications, LLC (which also owns Hickory radio station WHKY-AM), WHKY-TV broadcasts on UHF digital channel 40 (virtual channel 14).

WHKY-TV commenced broadcasting on February 14, 1968, and is now North Carolina's oldest independent TV station. The station's current schedule consists primarily of locally-produced religious and entertainment shows; paid programming and content from Jewelry Television; and a twice-nightly local newscast, WHKY NEWS, which is hosted by Jim Karas.

During the 1980s, channel 14 aired Cincinnati Reds baseball.


WHKY-TV Broadcast/Cable/Satellite History


In 2002, WHKY-TV installed two new antennas, installing not only one for digital programming but another to replace its older NTSC analog antenna. The latter antenna helped WHKY-TV's analog signal cover the far northern corner of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. As a result, the station was added to Time Warner Cable's Charlotte/Mecklenburg system under must-carry rules. The station also began identifying as "Hickory/Charlotte" in its on-air legal identification.

In 2004, WHKY-TV was able to increase its analog power to 2 million watts. On February 14, 2009, the station converted to digital-only broadcasting.[1]

Today, WHKY-TV's digital signal now operates from their new transmitter site on Baker Mountain. The station moved the T.V. transmitter in the fall of 2011 operating at 950KW with a small translator fill-in just north of Charlotte near the speedway.

WHKY-TV's signal also airs on Charter Communications cable channel 7 (in the Hickory area) and Time Warner Cable channel 18 (in the Charlotte area) not to be confused with The CW affiliate, WCCB which is seen on cable channel 11. In June 2006, the station's signal first appeared on Dish Network and DirecTV's Charlotte feeds, expanding the station’s reach to cover 2 million people in North and South Carolina. In recent years, WHKY has been carried on cable in Mountain City, Tennessee, which is within the Tri-Cities media market.

WHKY-TV Analog-to-digital conversion

WHKY-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 14, on February 17, 2009, the original date in which full-power television stations in the United States were to transition from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 40.[3] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 14.

On the main channel, WHKY (AM) can be heard by choosing the SAP option. Previously, the second and fourth digital subchannels have broadcast Jewelry Television, which is shown at various times on the main channel. The network was used as a placeholder until the additions of RTV and My Family TV on those respective subchannels. On September 28, 2012, My Family TV was replaced with PBJ, making WHKY-TV the first full power station to carry it (PBJ is mainly carried on low powered stations currently). In November 2012, WHKY-TV began broadcasting in 720p high definition on its main channel, although the channel doesn't carry any actual HD content yet.
