is a low-power television station
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
, broadcasting locally on channel 29 from facilities in the Oakland
section of Pittsburgh. WIIC-LP is a former affiliate of MTV2
. Like most over-the-air MTV2 affiliates, it was an affiliate of The Box until that network's acquisition by Viacom
in 2001. The station is owned by Abacus Television Network.
After leaving MTV2, WIIC-LP aired programming from NOYZ, a hybrid music/text messaging channel.
The WIIC callsigns are a direct reference to the city's longtime NBC affiliate WPXI, whose callsigns were WIIC-TV from 1957 to 1981.
