WVBK-CA is the Resort Sports Network affiliate for southern Vermont, licensed in Manchester, Vermont. The station's over-the-air transmissions are on VHF channel 2, with no digital signal; the 12 and 20 in WVBK's branding refer to its cable slots (as the station's effective radiated power is very low for a Class A station). WVBK is owned by Vision 3 Broadcasting.


The station signed on in 1998 as a repeater of WVBG-LP, then Albany, New York's UPN affiliate. It originally broadcast on UHF channel 49, not moving to channel 2 until late 2003. UPN programming ceased to appear on WVBK in 2000, after WVBG lost its affiliation to an Albany cable channel, WEDG-TV, and the station eventually picked up the Resort Sports Network. In the early 2000s, Vision 3 sold off WVBG and its other repeater, WVBX-LP, and WVBK became a separate station.
