In 1996, Tartikoff would take the popular game show national as "Know It Alls".[1].

WGNO then acquired WVUE's former ABC affiliation, and became the market's new affiliate of the network. [3] WGNO received help covering Gustav from the Tribune Company/Local TV partnership, which combines the control and Internet operations for both entities -- stations that sent crews to New Orleans included Fox affiliate WBRC (channel 6) in Birmingham, Alabama (now owned by Raycom Media), NBC affiliate WHO-TV (channel 13) in Des Moines, Iowa and CBS affiliate WHNT-TV (channel 19) in Huntsville, Alabama. [2] The move to the Galleria was complete and broadcasting began at their new home on August 29, 2007, the second-year anniversary of Katrina. On November 2, 1993, the Warner Bros. Television division of Time Warner announced the formation of The WB Television Network, in which the Tribune Company held a minority ownership interest (initially 12.5%, before eventually expanding to 22%).

[3], [4]. The station—which broadcast for eight hours a day from late afternoon to midnight during its first years of operation—maintained a general entertainment programming format consisting mostly of older movies, some theatrical cartoon shorts and a few off-network syndicated programs.

The station inaugurated programming with a greeting by then-Mayor Victor H. Schiro, which was followed by its first program, the 1927 Al Jolson film The Jazz Singer. In February 2007, Tribune announced that rather than move WGNO to WNOL's facility on Canal Street, it would be moving to the Galleria building in nearby Metairie. Originally owned by David Wagenvoord, it was the first independent station in the state of Louisiana and the first commercial television station to sign on in New Orleans since WWL-TV Channel 4 debuted as the market's CBS affiliate on September 7, 1957. [9] The station began broadcasting from new high definition-ready studios inside The Galleria on August 29, 2007 (coinciding with the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina), which included a brand-new news set and weather center. On cable, the station is available on Cox Communications and AT&T U-verse channel 11 in standard definition, and on Cox and U-verse channel 1011 in high definition. The two stations share studios at The Galleria on Galleria Drive (just south of I-10) in Metairie; WGNO's transmitter is located on East Josephine Street in Chalmette. WGNO reportedly turned down an offer by Fox to become a charter affiliate of the network, prior to its October 1986 launch; Fox programming instead went to WNOL, which its then-owners TVX Broadcast Group used as leverage to get Fox to sign a deal to affiliate with the majority of the company's independent stations. However, Tribune's December 2013 acquisition of Local TV added eleven additional "Big Three" stations to its portfolio; the purchase also displaced WGNO/WNOL as the company's smallest television stations by market size, with the Fort Smith, Arkansas duopoly of CBS affiliate KFSM-TV and MyNetworkTV affiliate KXNW filling that role.[7][8]. WGNO, virtual and UHF digital channel 26, is an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.

As a result, Tribune affiliated the majority of its independent stations with the network as charter affiliates. The station is owned by the Tribune Broadcasting subsidiary of the Tribune Media Company, as part of a duopoly with CW affiliate WNOL-TV (channel 38). Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. On June 4, 2010, the 9 p.m. newscast on sister station WNOL was cancelled due to a decision by station management to move CW primetime programming on WNOL ahead by one hour. During its first decade on the air, the station also cherry-picked several programs from NBC, ABC and CBS that WDSU (channel 6), WVUE-TV (then on channel 12, now on channel 8) and WWL-TV chose not to broadcast. In addition, the station produces the half-hour public affairs program The 411, which airs Sundays at 6:30 a.m. with a rebroadcast later that morning on WNOL-TV. On cable, the station is available on Cox Communications and AT&T U-verse channel 11. For a time after Hurricane Katrina hit, nightly newscasts were broadcast from various locations throughout the New Orleans area because the main studio was inaccessible.

A section under the title remains on the station's website (likely to retain the concept's copyright), but outside local food features, has not been updated since that time. The call sign stood for "The Wonderful World Of Movies," an adaptation of the "Wonderful World of Music" meaning used by co-owned radio station WWOM 600 AM, now WVOG, and 98.5 WWOM-FM, now WYLD-FM. By coincidence, the station's call letters reflect a connection with Tribune's flagship station, WGN-TV (channel 9) in Chicago, but channel 26 had WGN in their calls long before Tribune even thought of buying the station; and, with two other Tribune television properties also sporting the three letters in their call signs (KWGN-TV (channel 2) in Denver and WGNX (channel 46, now WGCL-TV) in Atlanta), channel 26 kept the WGNO call letters.

I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like. Initially, the station was on the air 8 hours a day from late afternoon to midnight. It was owned by David Wagenvoord until its sale to Communications Corp. of the South in 1971, and its call letters were changed to the current WGNO.
