WUAB Adds CW Affiliation

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WUAB, the Raycom station serving Cleveland, is now a CW affiliate.

The station signed an affiliation agreement and changes will be effective July 16.

“The CW has some of the most popular series on television among young adults,” said vice president and general manager Erik Schrader. “Now, along with our sister CBS affiliate Cleveland 19, we will be able to offer both viewers and advertisers a wide range of entertainment options.”

WUAB was a longtime MyNetwork TV affiliate that aired a 9 p.m. newscast.

WOIO is its sister station.
