W40CN-D is a low-power Class A television station in Sugar Grove, Illinois, United States, owned by Waubonsee Community College, a community college serving the Aurora area. Programming includes distance education telecourses from the college.
The college markets the station as primarily on cable: Comcast channel 99 or 17; Mediacom channel 15; or AT&T U-Verse channel 99.
As of July 2010[update], the college has not constructed a digital television station, and has cited severe budget problems with Illinois state funding and the local district's real estate tax base as reasons. In April 2012, the college filed to sell W40CN to Local Media TV Holdings.
