History

On January 24, 2006, The WB and UPN announced that they would cease broadcasting and merge. The new combined network would be called The CW. The letters would represent the first initial of its corporate parents: CBS (the parent company of UPN) and the Warner Bros. unit of Time Warner.

On February 22, News Corporation announced that it would start up another new broadcast network called MyNetworkTV. This new network, which would be sister to Fox, would be operated by Fox Television Stations and its syndication division, Twentieth Television. MyNetworkTV was created in order to give UPN and WB stations, not mentioned as becoming CW affiliates, another option besides becoming independent. It was also created to compete against The CW.

During the late summer and early fall of 2006, WHSV underwent major technical upgrades to make way for the creation of My Valley. A large tower was built behind the station’s Harrisonburg studios to accommodate the additional satellite receiver needed for the MyNetworkTV venture.

The station began broadcasting when MyNetworkTV launched which was on September 5, 2006. NBC affiliate WVIR-TV in Charlottesville broadcasts The CW on its third digital subchannel as part of The CW Plus.

As part of its schedule, the station rebroadcasts WHSV's weekday morning newscast at 7 a.m. That station's nightly 6 o'clock newscast airs at 7 on My Valley. WHSV News 3's 11@11 is aired at midnight on My Valley.
