On September 28, 1957, WPTA went on the air for the first time. Sarkes Tarzian, an engineer whose company owned WTTV and numerous other Indiana stations, formed it. The call letters are based on the initials of corporate management family members, as has been done for many years by other Tarzians. On-air, WPTA refers to itself as “Roanoke/Fort Wayne” until the station’s license was legally changed to Fort Wayne in the 1970s. WPTA was ranked alongside WISN-TV in Milwaukee and KMBC-TV in Kansas City as one of the top ten ABC affiliates in the country.
In 2005, Granite sold WPTA to the Malara Broadcast Group for $45.3 million after purchasing NBC affiliate WISE-TV. Granite stock was purchased by Greenwich, Connecticut-based hedge fund Silver Point Capital in 2007. The company has been accused of employing Malara as a shell corporation to circumvent FCC duopoly restrictions. On September 18, 2014, the CW premiered on WPTA-DT2. On September 5, WANE-second TV’s digital subchannel, which had been linked with UPN prior to the network’s demise, was decommissioned. In February 2014, Quincy Media agreed to buy WPTA from the Malara Broadcast Group.
