FOX59 History

WXIN is the Fox-affiliated television station serving the Indianapolis, Indiana television market. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 45 (virtual channel 59.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter on West 73rd Street (or Westlane Road). WXIN is sister to CW affiliate WTTV and the stations share studios at Network Place (near 71st Street & I-465) on Indianapolis’ northwest side.

With the launch of FOX59 News @ Six in September 2012, Fox59 produces a total of 60 hours of live, local news Monday through Friday–nearly double the amount of weekday news offerings from all other Indianapolis stations. The 60 hours of news Monday through Sunday makes FOX59 the fifth largest news producer in the country.

FOX59 is a Tribune Broadcasting station. Tribune is one of the country’s leading multimedia companies, operating businesses in publishing, digital and broadcasting. In publishing, Tribune’s leading daily newspapers include the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, The Baltimore Sun, Sun Sentinel (South Florida), Orlando Sentinel, Hartford Courant, The Morning Call and Daily Press. The company’s broadcasting group operates 23 television stations, WGN America on national cable and Chicago’s WGN-AM. Popular news and information websites complement Tribune’s print and broadcast properties and extend the company’s nationwide audience.
