Thank you

Greetings, thank you for posting the Miami Beach news article on beach closing over July 4th Friday, June 26, 2020. My husband has hotel business accounts on Miami Beach. It is important to know the CDC guidelines as well as the city protocols as this Covid-19 continues to produce “hot spots” in South Florida. We have not received from our local TV affiliates any news yes on Miami Beach closing during the upcoming holiday, around the corner.
We enjoy this station on our phones, ROKU TV and iPads and thank you for keeping us informed as this pandemic continues. Thank you, Debra L. Keezer


I am a news hound. I look at news feeds several times a day. You don’t update your stories frequently enough. To have stories that are from a day or so ago isn’t current For example when looking for vaccine information when things change rapidly your story might be 19 hours old. Don’t even get me started about Sunday’s. I think you take that day off completely.
I laugh when your commercial says you provide the most current, up to date news.
My other complaint is that you do not always answer-who, what, when or where. There might have been a crime and you tell us in Cape Coral. Well where in Cape Coral? In my neighborhood?
I do enjoy your tv broadcasts but you app really needs help.

Banner links and Saving stories

Like the app to keep in touch with what is going on in the local news. Would be nice if we could save the articles to show others like in the Apple news.
Do not like the way banner headlines are set up. I click on the link to read the article or watch the video and I get no article and no video but a watch live and I get get nothing of what I wanted to read. Plus the banner is gone and I forgot what the headline was and when I do remember it is almost impossible to find when looking through all the news. Key words for a search is not helpful.

Edison and Ford Winter Estates is resuming its popular Hypertufa on October 30 and November 6 at 9 a.m.! This is a two-part class, so participants should attend both sessions. Hypertufa is a lightweight mixture of Portland Cement, sphagnum peat moss and perlite that can be molded into a variety of shapes and pottery sizes. In part one of the class, participants will create a mold using recycled plastic garden containers and then pour a Hypertufa mixture into the mold for a unique wall pot. Wall pots require less space in the garden and may also be attached directly to a wall. In part two, participants will de-mold the pot and apply a surface treatment to complete the project. Retired art instructor and Edison Ford volunteer, Jim Hopton, will teach the class. Participants should bring a pair of rubber or latex kitchen gloves. All other supplies will be provided. Masks are recommended, but not required. The class size is limited to 10 participants. Register online at More

Public license information


WINK-TV, virtual channel 11 (UHFdigital channel 31), is a CBS-affiliatedtelevision stationlicensed to Fort Myers, Florida, United States and also serving Naples and Cape Coral. The station is owned by the McBride family and their Fort Myers Broadcasting Company, making it one of a handful of TV stations today to have locally-based ownership. Fort Myers Broadcasting also operates three Naples-licensed stations under a shared services agreement (SSA) with owner Sun Broadcasting: CW affiliate WXCW (channel 46), low-poweredUnivision affiliate WUVF-LD (channel 2), and low-powered Azteca América affiliate WANA-LD (channel 18). The four stations share studios on Palm Beach Boulevard (SR 80) in northeast Fort Myers; WINK-TV's transmitter is located north of Fort Myers Shores, near the Charlotte–Lee county line. On cable, the station is carried on Comcast Xfinity channel 5 and in high definition on digital channel 433.


The station began broadcasting on March 23, 1954, owned by the family of taxicab magnate and Cleveland Browns founder Mickey McBride along with WINK radio (1240 AM, later used on 1200 AM; and 96.9 FM). WINK-TV was the first television station in Southwest Florida and is the fifth-oldest surviving station in the state. Although the call letters appear to be an outgrowth of its CBS affiliation, in fact they were simply carried over from its radio sister, which adopted them in 1944—seven years before the CBS Eye made its first appearance.[1] It carried programming from the four major networks of its era: CBS, NBC, ABC and DuMont in the first two decades of its existence. However, it has always been a primary CBS affiliate.

Channel 11 lost DuMont when that network ended operations in 1956. In December 1968, WINK-TV finally gained a local competitor when WBBH-TV signed on and took the NBC affiliation. The two stations continued to share ABC until WEVU-TV (now WZVN-TV) signed on in 1974. However, viewers could watch the full ABC and NBC schedules via stations from Miami–Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Tampa–St. Petersburg, which were and continue to be available with outdoor antennas.

WINK-TV was a major beneficiary of a quirk in the FCC's plan for allocating stations. In the early days of broadcast television, there were twelve VHF channels available and 69 UHF channels (later reduced to 55 in 1983). The VHF bands were more desirable because they carried longer distances. Since there were only twelve VHF channels available, there were limitations as to how closely the stations could be spaced.

After the FCC's Sixth Report and Order ended the license freeze and opened the UHF band in 1952, it devised a plan for allocating VHF licenses. Under this plan, almost all of the country would be able to receive two commercial VHF channels plus one noncommercial channel. Most of the rest of the country ("1/2") would be able to receive a third VHF channel. Other areas would be designated as "UHF islands" since they were too close to larger cities for VHF service. The "2" networks became CBS and NBC, "+1" represented non-commercial educational stations, and "1/2" became ABC (which was the weakest network then usually winding up with the UHF allocation where no VHF was available).

However, Fort Myers is sandwiched between Miami–Fort Lauderdale (channels 2, 4, 6, 7 and 10) and West Palm Beach (channels 5 and 12) to the east and Tampa Bay (channels 3, 8, 10, and 13) to the north. This created a large doughnut in southwest Florida where there could be only one VHF license. WINK-TV was fortunate to gain that license, and as a result was the only local station that provided a clear picture to outlying portions of the market until cable television arrived in the mid-1970s. Although there was no station on channel 9 in the immediate area, it was occupied in Orlando, which was too close to Fort Myers to reallocate.

The station has identified almost exclusively with its call letters since the mid-1980s. This is due in large part to the extremely high penetration of cable and satellite in Southwest Florida—one of the highest in the nation. Cable and satellite are all but essential for acceptable television reception in much of the market, even in the digital age.

On October 20, 2007, WINK-TV became the first television station in Southwest Florida to begin broadcasting in high definition. In January 2008, several programming changes were made on WINK-TV. It began airing The Early Show (which was replaced by CBS This Morning in January 2012, which in turn was replaced by CBS Mornings in September 2021) in its entirety after CBS began requiring all of its affiliates to air the full two-hour broadcast of the program.[citation needed]

Digital television[edit]

Digital channels[edit]

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

WINK-TV operates the Naples–Fort Myers market's Antenna TV affiliate on its DT2 subchannel[3] (as of March 1, 2019), replacing a standard definition simulcast of the primary/CBS feed that had been airing over that subchannel since 2016,[4] that simulcast having replaced an affiliation with a 24/7 Weather service that aired over WINK-DT2 between 2012 and 2015.[5] As of March 4, 2019, WINK-DT2 also carries the MyNetworkTV programming service on weeknights, filling in programming for all time slots outside of the MyNetworkTV programming schedule with the Antenna TV schedule;[6] the March 2019 relaunch of WINK-DT2 as a dual Antenna TV/MyNetworkTV affiliate restored in-market access to the MyNetworkTV programming service to southwest Florida for the first time since Comcast's July 1, 2015 closure of former cable-exclusive dual MyNetworkTV/This TV affiliate, WNFM-TV.

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WINK has been digital-only since February 17, 2009.[7] It moved its digital signal to UHF channel 50 in mid-2011.[8][citation needed]


Syndicated programs broadcast on WINK-TV include Live with Kelly and Ryan, TMZ on TV, Castle, Inside Edition, and Rachael Ray.

News operation[edit]

WINK-TV presently broadcasts 40½ hours of locally produced newscasts each week (with 6½ hours each weekday, 3½ hours on Saturdays and 4½ hours on Sundays).[citation needed] WINK-TV operates two news bureaus: the Charlotte County Bureau in the Charlotte Sun newsroom in Charlotte Harbor and the Collier County Bureau in Naples. The Boston Red Sox have held spring training in Fort Myers since 1993, and WINK-TV shares its coverage of the team with fellow CBS station WBZ-TV in Boston.[citation needed] WINK-TV is one of two Fort Myers stations carried by Xfinity in Venice and Wauchula. It is the only Southwest Florida-based station carried on Xfinity's Sebring system.[9]

On May 26, 2011, WINK-TV debuted an hour-long 4 p.m. newscast, one of many added on television stations around the United States on that date to replace The Oprah Winfrey Show, which ended its 25-year run the day before.[10] On June 11, 2011 WINK-TV debuted a 90-minute morning newscast on Saturday and Sunday mornings.[11] WINK-TV also added a half-hour late morning newscast at 10 a.m. on September 6, 2011 (which was later dropped).[12] On September 16, 2013, WINK-TV expanded its weekday morning newscast a half-hour early to 4:30 a.m. and expanded the extension of that program on WXCW by one hour to 7 to 10 a.m.[13] In January 2015, WINK-TV expanded the 6:30 p.m. newscast to weekends on WXCW.[14]

Notable former staff include Hoda Kotb (1989–1991),[15]Trey Radel[16] and Kerry Sanders.[17]
