WTOG, channel 44, is a television station in St. Petersburg, Florida. Formerly owned by Viacom Corporation, WTOG served as the Tampa Bay Area station for the co-owned United Paramount Network. Its transmitter is located in Riverview, Florida.


HistoryEdit

WTOG was largely unaffected by the affiliation swaps of 1994, which saw longtime CBS affiliate WTVT switch to Fox, WFTS going to ABC and longtime ABC affiliate WTSP go to CBS, but WTOG did become a charter UPN affiliate, aligning itself with the network at its launch in 1995. As with its days as a Fox affiliate, WTOG continued to program a traditional independent format during the day, with UPN programming shown during prime time. In the early 90's, WTOG still was running mostly cartoons both old and recent, classic sitcoms, recent sitcoms, drama shows, and older movies. Paramount Stations Group, a subsidiary of Viacom (with which Hubbard had co-owned the All News Channel) purchased the station in the Spring of 1996, swapping NBC affiliates WNYT in Albany, New York and WHEC in Rochester, New York to Hubbard in the process. Paramount wanted to get rid of its non-UPN stations. This made WTOG the first O&O in Tampa Bay. Soon after taking control, Paramount changed WTOG's on-air branding to "UPN44", which it kept for the remainder of UPN's run. By the late 1990s, older sitcoms and older cartoons made way for talk shows, court shows, and reality programs during the daytime. Recent cartoons, such as Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Garfield and Friends, DuckTales, Doug and Hercules: The Animated Series, and recent sitcoms, such as Charles in Charge, Step by Step, All in the Family, Cheers (later on WTTA and then WMOR), Family Matters, Sister, Sister, Grace Under Fire, Roseanne, The Simpsons, Friends, Seinfeld (now on WTTA), Mad About You and NewsRadio continued to air but movies also were eliminated almost completely. Viacom bought CBS in 2000.
