History

WFFF was founded on May 6, 1994 and signed on air on Aug 31, 1997. At that time Champlain Valley didn’t have a primary Fox affiliate despite however, WCAX, linked with CBS aired Fox Sports and Fox Kids programming. It was originally owned by Champlain Valley Telecasting with Heritage Media as its operator. Heritage also owned WPTZ through a Local Marketing Agreement. Securing a construction permit from FCC, the channel was not able to broadcast in the area as it lacked the approval of Mount Mansfield Collocation Association. It after three years of wait was only able to broadcast form a WPTZ facility on Terry Mountain in Peru, NY. Sinclair Broadcast Group acquired the station from Heritage Media and sold it to Sunrise Television in 1998. WFFF was then purchased by Smith Broadcasting a year later.

It then signed affiliation with The WB when WBVT-LP moved to UPN in 1999. It would become a Nexstar station after the Federal Communications Commission approved the deal on Feb 5, 2013; the sale was finalized on March 1, 2013.
