Syracuse's Channel 9 has been an ABC-TV affiliate since it first took to the air in September 1962 as WNYS-TV. Like many U.S. TV stations, Channel 9 underwent numerous ownership changes over the years. One such change in 1978 resulted in the call letters becoming WIXT, and another in 2001 to Clear Channel Communications (now iHeartMedia), owners of WSYR Radio AM 570, saw the call change to the current WSYR-TV. As of this writing, WSYR-TV has changed hands twice since 2001 and is currently owned by Nexstar Broadcasting Group.
