WYDC is a Fox-affiliated television station licensed to Corning, New York, United States, serving the Twin Tiers of Southern Upstate New York (including Elmira) and Northern Pennsylvania. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on virtual and UHF channel 48 from a transmitter on Higman Hill in Corning. The station can also be seen on Spectrum channels 13 and 1206. Owned by Vision Communications, WYDC is sister to low-powered MyNetworkTV affiliate WJKP-LD (channel 39) and the two outlets share studios on East Market Street in Downtown Corning.

History[edit | edit source]

A construction permit for WYDC was given in 1993 to an engineer and his wife, and the station signed on as an independent station the following year. The station later joined the United Paramount Network (UPN) in 1995. Vision Communications bought the station in 1997, upgraded its facilities, and signed an affiliation deal with Fox; prior to WYDC's affiliation with Fox, the network's programming was not available over-the-air in the Elmira market. UPN programming still ran as a secondary affiliation for a few years.
