WJPX is a full-power television station in San Juan, Puerto Rico transmitting over analog channel 24, digital 21, which is the island's affiliate for MundoFox, the Spanish language sister network to the English language network Fox.
The station was founded in 1987 and was a 24 hour news station branded as WSJN 24 Horas, El Canal de Noticias. Some Puerto Rican television reporters started their careers at WSJN, such as Maria Celeste Arraras, Ada Torres Toro, Sol Sostre, Carlos Montero, Jorge Castro, Lyanne Melendez, Edna Schmidt and Roberto Cortes.
WJPX was later owned by LIN TV, which branded the station MTV. At that time, the station broadcast MTV programs (both locally-produced and imported from the main MTV network), videos and horse races. The MTV branding and programming were licensed from Viacom, which, incidentally, once owned two of WJPX's then-sister stations: WWHO in Columbus, Ohio and WNDY-TV in Indianapolis, before those stations were sold to LIN in 2005.
On October 19, 2006 LIN TV announced that it had entered into an agreement to sell WJPX along with sister station WAPA-TV to InterMedia Partners for $130 million in cash. The sale was completed on March 30, 2007.
InterMedia Partners then sold the station again to Caribevision Station Group. The sale was completed in October 2007.
From March 19, 2009 the subchannel digital 24.2 began transnmiting Camarero Racetrack.
On August 13, 2012, It Begins Broadcasting the Spanish language MundoFox Network after America Teve moves to WIRS Channel 42.1.
