WEYS-LP is a low-power television station in Miami, Florida, United States, broadcasting locally on channel 6 as an Almavision owned-and-operated station.

History as W56AZ[edit]

Founded in 1979 by the board of county commissioners, it was a relay translator for PBS affiliate WPBT-TV. The station went temporarily dark in 1989 for repairs and upgrades. It returned soon thereafter, though the format remained the same until the county commissioners sold the station in 2001 to WEYS Television Crop, then an affiliate of Network One.

As WEYS LP[edit]

By 2003 the call sign was changed to its current WEYS LP. It was later sold to Cayo Hueso Networks, LLC. The station continued as a relay translator until it was sold once more to Almavision Hispanic Network, Inc. in 2005. With the relay translator station of WSBS TV discontinued, it ran religious programming full-time, replacing Network One. As a low-power station, it remains as an analog station after the transition. Its audio also can be picked up at 87.7 FM due to an overlap between channel 6 and the start of the FM band.
