Public license information

WUTH-CD (channel 47) is a low-power, Class A UniMás-affiliated television station licensed to Hartford, Connecticut, United States, and serving the Hartford–New Haven television market. Owned by Santa Monica, California–based Entravision Communications, it is a sister station to Univision affiliate WUVN (channel 18). The two stations share studios at Constitution Plaza in downtown Hartford and transmitter facilities on Birch Mountain Road in Glastonbury, Connecticut.

History

What would become WUTH-CD was originally W61AH (channel 61), a translator for New York City's WXTV, as Hartford originally did not have a separate Univision affiliate. It moved from channel 61 to channel 47, becoming W47AD, in 1984 due to the launch of WTIC-TV, and briefly changed its call letters to WXTV-LP in 1995 (before reverting to its translator call of W47AD). Late in 2001, after Entravision bought WHCT to serve as a full-power Univision affiliate, W47AD's call letters were changed to WUTH-CA. The station became a charter affiliate of Telefutura (the predecessor of UniMás) in 2002, and Entravision took over ownership of WUTH later that year.
