WOLE-DT is a full-power television station licensed to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico transmitting over digital channel 12. The station has its studios in Aguadilla and its main offices are located in the Westernbank Building in downtown Mayagüez.

WOLE-DT is owned by Western Broadcasting Corporation of Puerto Rico and serves as a repeater for WKAQ-TV under an affiliation agreement and simulcasts over 95% of its programing. The station brands itself as Tele12 during local programing.

WOLE-DT simulcasts on W21CX-D, channel 21.1. W21CX-D is a translator station in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico and is also owned by Western Broadcasting Corporation of Puerto Rico.

On October 15, 2014, Univision Communications announced that WOLE-DT will become a satellite of Univision station WLII-DT; pending regulatory approval, the programming change will occur on January 1, 2015. With the move, WOLE will drop all programming from WKAQ-TV and Telemundo, which quickly entered into negotiations with WLII's existing western Puerto Rico satellite, WORA-TV (channel 5).[2]

Noticias Locales[edit]

WOLE-DT produces a 10-minute segment of local news called "Noticias Locales" similar to WORA-TV's WORA TV Noticias. The station uses a Telemundo 12 logo during these segments.
