WLOS, virtual and VHF digital channel 13, is an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to Asheville, North Carolina, United States, serving Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. The station is owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which also operates Anderson, South Carolina-licensed MyNetworkTV affiliate WMYA-TV (channel 40) under a local marketing agreement with owner Cunningham Broadcasting. However, Sinclair effectively owns WMYA as the majority of Cunningham's stock is owned by the family of deceased group founder Julian Smith.[1][2] The two stations share studios on Technology Drive (near I-26/US 74) in Asheville; WLOS' transmitter is located on Mount Pisgah in Haywood County, North Carolina. On cable, the station is available on Charter Spectrum channel 13.
