WTVY News 4 launched on Feb 12, 1995 as a CBS affiliate initially broadcasted on Channel 9. In the late 50’s it had affiliation with NTA Film Network. Federal Communication Commission in 1960 reallocated the station to Channel 4. While moving to the new dial the station also changed its transmitter site to new tower in Webb which at that time was the tallest structure in the state of Alabama. The tower located five miles east of Dothan still serves to transmit the signal of WTVY-FM. In 1970’s it became one of the first channels in the country to broadcast 24 hours a day. WTVY shifted to its current location in 1978; the tower in Bethlehem is the tallest structure in the state of Florida; the move was seen critical to improve the signal strength in Panama City and along the Florida Gulf Coast. The Studios were relocated to Houston Hotel in 1993. The studios are exactly spread at what used to be the ballroom of the hotel now known as Woods Building.
