WFAA, VHF digital channel 8, is an ABC-affiliated television station located in Dallas, Texas, United States which also serves Fort Worth and the surrounding metropolitan area. Owned by Gannett Company, WFAA maintains offices and primary studios located at the WFAA Communications Center Studios on 606 Young Street in downtown Dallas, and secondary studios located at the Victory Park development next to the American Airlines Center; the station's transmitter is located in Cedar Hill. From 1950 to 2013, WFAA was the flagship station of locally-owned Belo Corporation. WFAA is the largest ABC affiliate by market size that is not owned and operated by the network, one of only two television stations in the Dallas-Fort Worth market that is not owned by its affiliated network and the largest affiliate of any of the "Big Four" networks not to be owned by that respective network. The station formerly served as a default ABC affiliate for the Sherman-Ada market from April 1998 to May 2010, when NBC affiliate KTEN launched an ABC-affiliated digital subchannel; despite this, WFAA remains available on cable providers in the southern half of the market.
