Eventually the TV station was assigned the VHF frequency of channel 13 and changed its call letters to WAST-TV. It was sold to Sonderling Broadcasting. In 1979 WAST Television was purchased by Viacom International. In 1981 it changed its call letters to WNYT and

Where is Pauline?
My Sister, is my Best friend, my inspiration, my everything and a cancer survivor to boot. She is an amazing person and I love her to the moon and back a trillion times overโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜
Your weather app SUCKS!
A speeding car went through a stone garden wall and crashed into this house on upper Union Street in the middle of the night while the lone resident was asleep upstairs. Thankfully, he was not hurt. Multiple police and ambulances were on the scene within minutes. ๏ฟผ there is more extensive damage inside the house. ๏ฟผWe have had a problem with speeding cars in this neighborhood for a while now and Wright Avenue is the gateway to Central Park with many children and families often walking here. I think it is time to reach out to the mayor and city council about the possibility of adding speed humps on the street to protect residents and pedestrians.๏ฟผ
Iโ€™m watching the 5:00 news. Why are Elaine and Mark not standing together at the desk? All other anchors are together. Just wondering.
I'm mad at you guys letting Paulina go she was awesome better change your minds fast and put the -ina crew back together again.
What is with the absolutely horrible editing tonight? Going to commercial in the middle of a high bar routine and then all of that dead air. Is this wnyt's issue? Or nbc? My favorite of all the Summer Olympics is the women's gymnastics and it's making it almost impossible to watch ๐Ÿฅบ
Perhaps you can post a link to Jade Carey's uneven bar routine given your channel went haywire during the event and caused most of us to miss it! ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก
No olympic coverage. Lots of commercials and notices. What happened. Black screen.
Killing me tonight ... Missing so much of the gymnastics with the technical errors!
We wait 5 years for the Olympics. Other nights, there are more ads than show. Tonight, Ch 13 can't even handle the feed. Poor, poor job.
