WMYT-TV Channel 55 (known on-air as MyTV12, a reference to its cable channel location) is the MyNetworkTV affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is carried on channel 12 on most area cable systems. It is owned by Capitol Broadcasting Company along with WJZY. It is licensed to Rock Hill, South Carolina; making it the only commercial station licensed to the South Carolina side of the Charlotte market. However, it shares a studio with WJZY in northwest Charlotte, and maintains transmitter facilities in Dallas, North Carolina.

The station began on October 21, 1994 as WFVT, an independent station owned by "Family 55," an Indiana-based group. It was operated by WJZY through a local marketing agreement. It became a charter WB affiliate in 1995, and shortly after that rebranded itself as "WB55". Capitol Broadcasting of Raleigh, WJZY's owner, bought WFVT outright in 2000 after the FCC relaxed ownership restrictions and changed the calls to WWWB in 2001--calls that had originally been held by a station in Tampa Bay. Over the years, channel 55 was one of The WB's strongest affiliates.

From 2000-2002 the station had a short-lived 10 pm newscast produced by WCNC-TV.

Shortly after My Network TV was announced, WWWB was announced as the network's Charlotte affiliate. WJZY had already joined The CW, a merger of UPN and The WB, effective September that year. [http://publications.mediapost.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=Articles.showArticleHomePage&art_aid=40486] This gave Charlotte the nation's first CW-My Network TV duopoly. Though most television experts expected WJZY to get the CW affiliation, it would not have been an upset had WWWB gotten the affiliation instead. Network officials were on record as preferring the "strongest" WB and UPN stations, and Charlotte was one of the few markets where the WB and UPN affiliates were both relatively strong.

On April 28, 2006, WWWB changed its call letters to WMYT-TV, in anticipation of its new affiliation. [http://www.charlotte.com/mld/charlotte/entertainment/television/14257209.htm] WMYT has been the over-the-air home for the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats starting with the 2006-07 season.

For a time in 2006 and 2007, WMYT erected several advertising signs around the Charlotte area describing several Charlotte landmarks as "my ___." In May 2007, it leased one of its digital subcarriers to WGTB-LP, a low-powered religious station.

Channel 55 had previously been home to a low-powered repeater of South Carolina Educational Television from 1974 to 1978, when SCETV programming moved to a full-powered satellite, WNSC-TV on channel 30.
