List of independent television stations in the U.S.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of independent stations, ordered by state and city of license. Eventually, there will be links to and articles on each of the stations, describing their local programming, hosts and technical information, such as broadcast frequencies.

The station's advertised channel number follows the call letters. In most cases, this is their over-the-air broadcast frequency.

Excluded from this list are satellite stations and affiliates of secondary television channels, including Equity Broadcasting's Retro Television Network. Independent stations with secondary affiliations to networks, however, are included.
