WIYC went on air as WRJM on Nov 24, 2000; it was an affiliated with UPN at that time. After the merger of UPN and The WB, it instead of signing with The CW went on to join News Corporations owned MyNetworkTV upon its very first day as a Network on Sep 5, 2006. It in addition to clearing the Network’s content also aired local programs, promoted local sporting events and broadcasted syndicated content. With the non-payment of USD 2.9m loan to Citizens Bank, Walter P. Lunsford, the bankruptcy receiver at that time contacted Federal Communications Commission and expressed that the new owner would be responsible for the construction of new digital facilities of WRJM and not him. Southern Venture Capital Group on Jan 16, 2009 started operating the channel under an LMA and purchased it outright two months later on April 20, 2009 for USD 3m. Artists and Fans Network, Inc. in Aug 2009 acquired WRJM from SVCG.
WRJM was rechristened as WIYC in Nov 2009 however, it made digital transition not before 2014 mainly because of financial cost which it needed to make purchase for the digital-supporting equipment. Already carrying The Country Network on its sub-channel, WIYC in 2011 removed TCN’c country music videos to give space to WeatherNation. In 2013, it switched affiliation and joined Cozi TV.
WIYC was sold by Neal Ardman to Woods Communications Corporation for USD 1m on April 3, 2018 following the approval of Federal Communications Commission. The switch of ownership resulted in a new duopoly in Montgomery market with WCOV affiliated with Fox and airing on Ch 20.
