. . . WMUN-CD . . .

Founded in 1988, the station was owned by WLIG (now WLNY-TV) Inc. It was an independent translator station out of Mineola, NY, after W44AI (now WNYX-LD) moved the license to New York City as an independent station airing public access TV. In the following years, the call letters changed from WLIG-LP, WLNY-LP, and back to the original call sign of WLIG-CD in 2010. Despite the call changes, the programming stayed much the same. After WLNY-TV announced the station’s sale to CBS, the translator station was sold to Local Media in 2012 and temporarily ceased broadcasting.

In mid-2012, the call letters changed to WMUN-CD, and the station began running Classic Arts Showcase full-time. By late 2012, CAS was dropped and the station began airing infomercials. The following year, children’s programming was added to fulfill E/I requirements, plus locally produced programming such as Community Impact. In the summer of 2014, The Balancing Act was added to the station’s afternoon lineup.

WMUN-CD was the third television station that operated W19EH-D as a translator, behind WEBR-CD, WCBS-TV and WPIX.

Community Impact was moved to late afternoons in 2015, and additional children’s programming was added for an hour on weekday and weekend afternoons, thus exceeding the E/I requirements. A few weeks later, the children’s programming, along with public affairs programming, was dropped and the station began to air infomercials full-time. The following year, E/I programming returned on the air.

On April 13, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that WMUN-CD was a successful bidder in the spectrum auction, and would be surrendering its license in exchange for $23,191,413.[1] Local Media TV surrendered WMUN-CD’s license to the FCC for cancellation on August 28, 2017.

The station’s digital channel is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP short name Programming
45.1 1080i 16:9 WMUN-CD Infomercials
45.2 WMUN-2 Jewelry TV

In March 2015, home shopping channel Jewelry TV was added to the station’s 45.2 sub-channel under the name WMUN-2.
