WDVM-TV, virtual channel 25 (UHF digital channel 26), is an independent television station licensed to Hagerstown, Maryland, United States and serving the western portion of the Washington, D.C. television market. The station is owned by the Nexstar Media Group. WDVM-TV's studio facilities are located in the Alexander House Hotel on East Washington Street in downtown Hagerstown, and its transmitter is located in Fairview Mountain, west of Clear Spring.

History[edit]

The station signed on the air as WHAG-TV on January 3, 1970. It was originally owned by Warren Adler along with WHAG radio in Halfway (AM 1410 and FM 96.7, now WDLD). A site on Fairview Mountain would become the location of the analog signal on UHF channel 25. The station was an NBC affiliate; network anchors Chet Huntley and David Brinkley welcomed the station to the NBC television network during their newscast that night.[1] Adler Communications sold WHAG-TV to Sheldon and Samuel Magazine of Washington, D.C. in 1973. The Magazine Brothers then sold it to local aviation pioneer Richard Henson in 1977. Henson then sold the station to Great Trails Broadcasting in 1981. Great Trails exited broadcasting and sold WHAG along with 2 of its stations—WFFT-TV in Fort Wayne, Indiana and KSVI in Billings, Montana to Quorum Broadcasting in 1998 for $65 million.[1][2]

On September 8, 2003, Nexstar Broadcasting Group announced that it would acquire Quorum Broadcasting and its stations (including WHAG-TV) for $230 million.[3][4] The sale was completed on December 31, 2003.[5]

WHAG's broadcasts became digital-only, effective June 12, 2009.[6][7]

Loss of NBC affiliation[edit]

NBC confirmed to The Herald-Mail that it was declining to renew its affiliation with WHAG on February 19, 2016, with the station officially ceasing to broadcast the network's programming "in the summer"; it was later announced that the affiliation would end on July 1, 2016. A factor in this decision was perceived competition with network-owned WRC-TV. The two stations are technically in the same market, a situation which also caused the Philadelphia/Atlantic City market's WMGM-TV to lose its affiliation in 2015 in favor of network-owned WCAU. WHAG-TV would continue to produce local programming, including local newscasts, with the expansion of the station's local news department.[8] WHAG-TV would also add programs from Heroes & Icons.[9]

On July 1, 2017, the station rebranded itself and adopted the call sign WDVM-TV. The change came after the station expanded its coverage area by 1.2 million households, with news director Mark Kraham stating that "we wanted to make it clear that we’re not just a Hagerstown station."[10]

News operation[edit]

Right from the start, WHAG began offering local newscasts with The Valley News which aired weeknights at 6, 7, and 11. The original anchors were Bob Witt with news, Glenn Presgraves with sports, and Bill Wolfinger forecasting the weather. The news department expanded in 1972 to include weekend evening broadcasts at 11 that totaled six hours of local news per week. By the year 2000, news content increased to over 22 hours of broadcasts per week. In 1997, WHAG added a microwave truck allowing the transmitting of live breaking news from the viewing area.[1] On February 12, 2010, WHAG dropped the "NBC 25" branding for "WHAG" and switched its news branding from "NBC 25 News" to "WHAG News".

On August 30, 2010, WHAG added a half hour to its weekday noon and 5 p.m. newscasts. In addition, a Northern Virginia Bureau covering Leesburg, Berryville, and Winchester was opened. All of the preceding changes required the expansion of WHAG's personnel.[12][13] On October 21, 2013, WHAG began broadcasting its local newscasts in high definition.

On February 19, 2016, Nexstar announced plans for a major expansion of the station's news operation that launched on July 1, 2016, delivering 20 hours of additional news programming per-week, including Maryland and Northern Virginia-specific coverage and "West Virginia's only available state-wide local news" (Nexstar had previously announced its purchase of the West Virginia Media Holdings chain).[14][15][16]

Cable and satellite carriage[edit]

Recently, it has been added to the Dish Network lineup of local offerings and is available to subscribers that currently receive the Washington D.C. market locals. It is also viewed in widescreen standard definition on Verizon FiOS.
