WPXU-TV is one of two Ion Television affiliates for the Greenville/Jacksonville/New Bern/Washington, North Carolina television market. It is licensed to Jacksonville. The station is owned by ION Media Networks, and is a satellite station to Greenville's WEPX-TV to serve the southern part of the market.

WPXU-TV operates in digital on UHF channel 34, and has operated since sometime in the 1990s.

WPXU-TV and WEPX-TV were affiliates of MyNetworkTV from September 5, 2006 until September 27, 2009 when MyNetworkTV's affiliation switched over to WITN-TV, prior to this, the stations were solely affiliates of Ion (then known as i and originally known as PAX TV).
