WYYW-CD channel 15 is the Telemundo affiliate in Evansville, Indiana, its city of license. From 1995 until 2007, there was a third translator serving the city, W56DN channel 56.

Until 2009, WYYW-CD was co-owned by the Evansville Low Power Partnership and Communications Corporation of America (ComCorp), which owns Evansville CBS affiliate WEVV-TV.

On May 19, 2009, the then-WTSN-LP ceased broadcasting My44 and MyNetwork programming, and on June 1, the station flash cut to digital as WTSN-LD and changed its affiliation to America One. WEVV now carries My Network TV as a secondary affiliate on its digital signal, on digital channel 44.2.

In August 2010, both WTSN-LD and WYYW-LP were granted Class A status by the Federal Communications Commission. The Class A designation protects them from being relocated to another channel by a full-power station.

In November 2011, WTSN-CD and WYYW-LP became affiliates of the classic programming network Me-TV.[1] This lasted until February 25, 2014, when WYYW took on The Heartland Affiliation. The Station also added a Second Digital Sub-Channel to carry The Family Channel on 15.2 on that same date. Me-TV was still seen on Sister Station WTSN-CD until October 23, 2014. Then on January 17, 2015, WTSN-CD did repeats of Heartland's E/I programming on Saturday mornings, replacing its Heroes & Icons affiliation at that time during the weekend with these programs because of its religious programming on Sunday mornings until the affiliation with WYYW-CD ended. Then, in July 2015, WYYW-CD started to affiliate with the Spanish language network Telemundo moving Retro TV to sub-channel 15.3.[2]
