W40CN-D is a low-power Class A television station in Sugar Grove, Illinois, United States, owned by Waubonsee Community College, a community college serving the Aurora area. Programming includes distance education telecourses from the college.

The college markets the station as primarily on cable: Comcast channel 99 or 17; Mediacom channel 15; or AT&T U-Verse channel 99.[1]

As of July 2010, the college has not constructed a digital television station, and has cited severe budget problems with Illinois state funding and the local district's real estate tax base as reasons.[2] In April 2012, the college filed to sell W40CN to Local Media TV Holdings.[3]
