WMTV hit the waves on July 8, 1953 as a joint NBC, DuMont and ABC affiliate however, it was primary affiliated with NBC. WKOW in 1956 beat out the service to take ABC affiliation as it gave up the CBS to WISC-TV. WMTV after the shutdown of DuMont became the exclusive NBC affiliate in the market. It changed its broadcasting slot from Ch 33 o Ch 15 in 1960 which it kept until its digital transition on Feb 17, 2009. The over-the-air transmission is now available on Ch 19. The Ch 19 broadcasts are also utilized by Chicago-based WGN-TV and Grand Rapids-based WXMI which results in interference between the two in westernmost and easternmost pockets of their areas particularly in Walworth County just outside Madison.
