WTVQ-DT2, branded as MyTVQ 2, is the MyNetworkTV-affiliated television station that is licensed to and serving the Lexington, Kentucky area. The station is a digital subchannel of ABC-affiliate WTVQ, which is owned by Morris Multimedia.  It is broadcast over the air digitally on UHF channel 40.2 (Virtual channel 36.2 through the use of PSIP) from a transmitter located at WTVQ-DT2’s parent station’s studios on the Man o’ War Boulevard (KY 1425) in the Brighton section of eastern Fayette County.  It is within a mile of competing CBS-affiliate WKYT and its CW-affiliated subchannel, WKYT-DT2.
WTVQ-DT2 is carried on Insight digital cable channel 138 and in HD on digital channel 917 in the Lexington area.
The original MyNetworkTV affiliate in Lexington was the market’s original UPN affiliate, the now-defunct WBLU-LP, which originally broadcast on analog channel 62. The original channel 62 designation was used by WTVQ (which was WBLG-TV at the time) from its 1968 inception until their move to channel 36 in 1980.
WBLU-LP carried MyNetworkTV programming, along with some RTV programming from MyNetworkTV’s September 2006 inception until Halloween of 2008, which is about 30 days after the low-powered station spent some time off the air for over two months. After WBLU-LP’s loss of MyNetworkTV, viewers of the Lexington area who were fans of WWE Friday Night Smackdown lost the program because channel 62 dropped the network that it was carried on. RTV remained on channel 62 until January 2009. WBLU-LP went permanently dark on March 4, 2009 before being sold at auction to the Daystar TV network.
Meanwhile, WTVQ-DT2 launched as a 24/7-weather channel on January 1, 2005, providing local weather forecasts anytime the viewer needs it. It was broadcast on the second subchannel for four years. On January 1, 2009, WTVQ-DT2 relaunched to become Lexington’s new MyNetworkTV affiliate, and adopted the branding MyTVQ2, with the 24/7-weather channel moving to a newly created third subchannel.  The ABC 36 Weather channel continued to simulcast overnight on WTVQ-DT2 until April 2009.
