WTXX-LP is the low-powered AMGTV-affiliated television station for the Pioneer Valley area of Massachusetts that is licensed to Springfield. Owned by R and S Broadcasting, it broadcasts an analog signal on UHF channel 34 from a transmitter southeast of Wilbraham. This is also the location of the digital operations for low-powered CBS affiliate WSHM-LD. [1] WTXX is the former call sign of Connecticut's The CW affiliate WCCT-TV. WTXX is a relatively new station in the area, and as a result, is currently not mentioned in television listings or offered on cable.

In June 2013, R and S Broadcasting reached a deal to sell WTXX, along with sister station WRNT-LP in Hartford, Connecticut, to Landover 5 LLC.[1]
