WLNN-LP (branded as the Mountain Television Network and MTN 18) is a class A television station in Boone, North Carolina. It broadcasts over-the-air on channel 24, and on cable channel 18 in the Boone area. It is an independent station with some programming from America One. WLNN produces a low budget newscast and other programming that covers local affairs in the High Country region. The station was previously owned by Steve Rondinaro, who was also the evening news anchor before taking that position at WWAY in Wilmington. Rondinaro later sold WLNN to Terry Smith in 2008.[1][2] WLNN's local programming can also be seen on WTBL-CD in Lenoir and on local cable channels in the broadcast area. WLNN does not broadcast a digital signal of its own, so it is carried full-time on WTBL's second digital subchannel.
