History[edit]

The station went on the air in 1989 as W35AT, and changed to the current WYLN-LP in 1996. A year prior, it became the first affiliate of The WB in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre/Hazleton market that year, later losing the affiliation to WSWB-TV in 1998. Until 2015, the station was an America One affiliate. That same year, America One merged with Youtoo TV, with the merged network being called Youtoo America.
