WILM Coverage Map

WILM-TV is committed to being good community partners by providing space in our broadcast day and on our web sites for Public Service Announcements to our local and regional non-profit organizations to help further their community outreach causes.

Looking back, WILM-TV has come a long way as a low power station since its humble beginnings growing into and becoming a history maker in the digital television revolution as one of the first stations in the country to make the switch to all digital broadcasting. WILM has grown to be a powerful influence in the market in a relatively short period of time.

Looking ahead WILM has plans for continued growth both in the content and technology areas striving to be the best news, information and entertainment provider in the region.
