WBTV made history on July 15, 1949, when we signed on as the first television broadcaster in the Carolinas. As we celebrate 70 years of service to our community this year, join us as we look back. WBTV has earned a reputation in that time as Charlotte’s most trusted local news and certified most accurate weather forecast because before we’re on your screen, we’re on your side. It’s a different world now, but nothing’s changed. We’ve spent every day for the last 70 years focused on earning your trust.
