Along with sister station WTRF-TV in Wheeling, WBOY launched a new second digital subchannel with ABC programming on July 17, 2008. Previously, both the Clarksburg / Weston / Fairmontmarket and the Wheeling / Steubenville market were served by WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh as the de facto affiliate. When WBOY-DT2 launched, it resulted in the debut of the area's first weeknight 7 o'clock newscast. Known as 12 News Live on ABC, it broadcasts exclusively on the ABC station. Otherwise, WBOY-DT2 simulcasts the weekday editions of 12 News at 6 A.M., Noon, 6, and 11 P.M. It does not simulcast weekend broadcasts from the main channel.
