WKEF, virtual channel 22 (UHF digital channel 18), is an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to Dayton, Ohio, United States and serving the Miami Valley. The station is owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which also operates Fox affiliate WRGT-TV (channel 45) under a local marketing agreement (LMA) with owner Cunningham Broadcasting. However, Sinclair effectively owns WRGT as the majority of Cunningham's stock is owned by the family of deceased group founder Julian Smith. The two stations share studios on Corporate Place in Miamisburg; WKEF's transmitter is located off South Gettysburg Avenue, near the New Chicago section of Dayton. On cable, WKEF can be seen on Charter Spectrum channel 11.
