History

WNDY went on air on Nov 1, 1987 as WMCC under the ownership of G. J. Robinson. The independent channel mostly broadcasted paid content including cartoons, movies, sitcoms and westerns. WMCC was housed on Earth 246th Street/State Road 213 in White River Township. WMCC continued to broadcast recent sitcoms, talk content and reality shows during 90s. The channel later shifted its operations to new facility on West 16th Street in Indianapolis.

WMCC was released to Wabash Valley Broadcasting on Dec 7, 199. On Jan 9, 1995, it changed its calls to WNDY-TV and was rebranded as INDY-TV. It became a charter WB affiliate two days later and changed its affiliation to INDY-TV WB 23 to reflect its new affiliation with the newly joined network. Hulman-George family put the station on the market in 199. Spartan Communications came forward to buy WNDY but stepped out of the deal an hour before it was scheduled on Oct 3, 1997. On Jan 22, 1998, it joined UPN but still maintained WB affiliation. It was bought by UPN on Feb 4, 1998.

The contract with The WB was expired in Jan 1999. WB was joined by WTTV on April 6, 1998. Channel 23 was rebranded as UPN 23. It would adopt UPN Indiana branding in Sep 2003. On Feb 10, 2005, UPN released WNDY to LIN TV Corporation. It was rebranded as WNDY UPN 23 in July 2005. On April 26, 2006, LIN signed an affiliation agreement for WNDY with MyNetworkTV affiliate. LIN Media on March 21, 2014 submerged into Media General for USD 1.6bn; the deal consummated on Dec 19, 2014.

Media General merged with Nexstar on Sep 8, 2015. On Dec 3, 2018, Nexstar showed its intent to acquire assets of Tribune Media. Circle City Broadcasting on April 8, 2019 revealed its plans to acquire WNDY and WISH and sealed the deal on Sep 1, 2019.
