WMYS-LP is a low power TV station on channel 69 in South Bend. Previously, channel 69 was South Bend's WB affliliate, which then moved to sister station WMWB-LP channel 25 (now CW affiliate WCWW-LP). Before that, WMYS was a translator of WBND-LP, the ABC affiliate. WMYS is owned by Weigel Broadcasting. In September 2006, WMYS became an affiliate of FOX's new sister network, MyNetworkTV. The station is currently branded as My Michiana. WMYS also carries Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs games that are carried on WCIU-TV in Chicago.
In early August 2008, Weigel Broadcasting agreed to sell all three of its South Bend stations, including WMYS, to Schurz Communications, the longtime owner of the local CBS affiliate WSBT-TV, for undisclosed terms.
