History[edit]

as W57BC, WLIG, and WLNY[edit]

Founded in 1988 the station was owned by WLIG now WLNY-TV Inc. It was an independent translator station out of Mineloa, NY after W44AI now WNYX-LD move the license to New York City as an independent station programming Public Access TV. In the following years the call sign changes from WLIG-LP, WLNY-LP, and back to the original call sign of WLIG-CD in 2010. Despite the call sign changes the program stays much of the same. WLNY-TV announce that they will be selling to CBS. Hoping that the translator stations will be included once the sell and the transition complete. Instead WLNY sold the station to Local Media in 2012 thus it cease broadcasting.

As WMUN-CD[edit]

In mid-2012 the call sign changed to WMUN-CD and began running Classic Arts Showcase full-time. By late 2012 classic arts showcase was dropped and began airing Informercials. The following year children's programming was added to fulfill E/I requirements plus locally produced programming such as community impact. WMUN-CD is the third television station that is currently operating W19EH-D as a translator, behind WEBR-CD and WPIX.
