WETM-DT2 is an Independent television station for the Central and Western Twin Tiers of Southern Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania. It is a second digital subchannel of NBC affiliate WETM-TV that is owned by the Nexstar Broadcasting Group. Over-the-air, the station airs a standard definition digital signal on UHF channel 18.2 from a transmitter on Hawley Hill in Big Flats. It can also be seen on Time Warner Cable channel 11 and digital channel 1245. Its parent outlet has studios on East Water Street in downtown Elmira. Syndicated programming on WETM-DT2 includes Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, Access Hollywood, and Extra among others.
WETM-DT2 has its roots in W30AA, a translator of WSKG-TV, the PBS member station in Binghamton. WSKG closed down the translator in 2003 after concluding that the expenses required to operate W30AA were not justified by its limited viewership.  That station then sold the W30AA license to Clear Channel Communications, then-owner of WETM, who brought it back on-air in September 2004 as UPN affiliate WTTX-LP identified on-air as "UPN 30".  With the September 2006 merger of UPN and The WB into The CW, WTTX competed to become the market's affiliate.
Ultimately, that went to cable-only WB 100+ station "WBE" which is operated by ABC affiliate WENY-TV. WTTX was dealt another blow when WSKG launched full-power digital station, WSKA on channel 30 forcing Clear Channel to shut down the low-powered transmitter. WTTX's programming was then moved to WETM-DT2 which became an independent after The CW launched on September 18, 2006. WETM-DT2 won a New York State Broadcasters Association Award for its coverage of high school sports in 2006, 2008, and 2010. The channel airs local sports such as Elmira Jackals hockey and New York Yankees baseball.
The 2004 launch of WETM-DT2/WTTX-LP introduced the area's first prime time broadcast at 10 which can be seen for thirty minutes on weeknights. WETM 18 News at 10 currently competes with a ten minute news and weather update seen on Fox affiliate WYDC (which is taped in advance). WETM-DT2 also simulcasts the entire weekday morning show in addition to the weeknight newscasts at 5 and 6 from the main channel.
