WNXY-LP is a low-power television station in New York, New York that was licensed to broadcast locally on channel 26. It did obtain a Special Temporary Authority to remain silent, pending the build-out of its Construction Permit for Low Power Digital Television service over Channel 43. As of March 10, 2011 it returned to the air on virtual channel 43.1, with a test pattern.


as W54AY and WNXY-LP

Originally, WNXY-LP started on channel 54 as W54AY which was licensed in Brownsville Brooklyn. It was the first TV station in Brooklyn and it was over the air. One programming that was air in the 1980s was Rapid T. Rabbit Show which also airs on then on W44AI (now WNYX-LD) for a short time before moving to cable months later.

In 1998, it changed its call letters to WNXY-LP and moved to channel 27. Like its sister station WNYX-LD, this station broadcast community access-type programming. Much of its programming generally appealed to various ethnic audiences. In 2000, the station moved to channel 26 due to WTBY-TV being assigned channel 27 for its Digital Television service. In 2006, WNXY-LP was granted the right to flash cut to channel 43 after the digital transition, due to predicted interference with KYW-TV in Philadelphia, which broadcasts on channel 26. In the summer of 2007, WNXY-LP left the air when metro studios moved to Times Square. In late 2007, it returned to the air as a translator station of WNYX. In April 2009, WNXY once again suspended operations and was silent.


Around 2012 Island Broadcasting sold WNXY to NY Spectrum Holdings it is currently off the air. WNXY returned on the air in October 2013 simulcasting co owned WNYX-LD.
