WPXW-TV, virtual channel 66 (UHF digital channel 34), is an Ion Television owned-and-operated television station serving the American capital city of Washington, District of Columbia that is licensed to nearby Manassas, Virginia. The station is owned by Ion Media Networks (the former Paxson Communications). WPXW's studios are located in Fairfax Station, Virginia, and its transmitter is located in the tower complex near the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and 41st Street NW in the Tenleytown neighborhood of Washington.

On cable, the station is available on Comcast Xfinity channel 33 in Washington, D.C., Cox Communications channel 15 in Fairfax County, Virginia, and channel 16 or 17 on most other systems in the market.

WWPX-TV (channel 60) in Martinsburg, West Virginia, serves as a full-time satellite of WPXW.

HistoryEdit

Channel 66 signed on as WTKK, an independent religious station owned by National Capital Christian Broadcasting, in 1978. The call letters stood for Witnessing The King of Kings. In 1982, they added some classic sitcoms and very old movies to the lineup, but by 1986, they reverted to mostly religious. From 1984 until 1986, WTKK had a sister station in Richmond, WTLL. In 1994, WTKK was purchased by ValueVision, a home shopping network, and on June 6, 1994, the call letters were changed to WVVI. Paxson Communications purchased the station in 1997, and on January 13, 1998, the call letters were changed to the current WPXW. The station was an all-infomercial channel ("inTV") from the time that Paxson bought the station until the Pax network launched on August 31, 1998. The station had the rights to the 2005 season of Baltimore Orioles games in the Washington area that were produced by MASN. It was formerly known as Pax 66, before the Pax network changed its name to i: Independent Television and later Ion Television.
