WSAV-DT2 is the MyNetworkTV and Me-TV television station for South Carolina's Lowcountry and Georgia's Coastal Empire. It is a second digital subchannel of NBC affiliate WSAV-TV owned by Media General. Over-the-air, the station broadcasts a standard definition digital signal on UHF channel 39.2 (or virtual channel 3.2 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Little Neck Road in unincorporated Western Chatham County, Georgia.

Known on-air as MyLC (standing for "Local Choice"), this service can also be seen Time Warner Cable digital channel 121, Charter digital channel 175 and Comcast digital channel 226. WSAV-DT2's parent station has studios on East Victory Drive/U.S. 80 in Savannah, Georgia's Live Oak section.

The only syndicated programming offerings seen on this station are repeats of The Dr. Oz Show and Dr. Phil from the main channel.

History

WSAV-DT2 signed-on September 5, 2006 as the area's MyNetworkTV and Retro Television Network (RTV) affiliate known on-air as "My TV". While MyNetworkTV was a brand new programming service, the latter network was not cleared in the Savannah market until the launch of this station.

Originally seen on-air and featured through its website was a logo that read "WSAV-DT 3.2 Savannah". On September 26, 2011, RTV was dropped in favor of Me-TV after Media General reached a carriage agreement on some of its television outlets including WSAV-DT2. With the change, the digital subchannel became known as "MyLC" and dropped the use of MyNetworkTV's standard logo.

Newscasts

In early-March 2009, WSAV-DT2 launched Savannah's only sixty minute local newscast weeknights at 7. Known on-air as My Lowcountry 3, this production focuses on the South Carolina side of the market featuring coverage from throughout the Lowcountry and the state. There is a weather forecast targeted towards Hilton Head and Beaufort as well as South Carolina sports headlines. WSAV became the last Savannah station to upgrade newscasts to high definition on March 8, 2011. However, since WSAV-DT2 only transits in standard definition digital, My Lowcountry 3 was not included in the change.

While affiliated with RTV, this station aired Daytime on weekday mornings at 9 for an hour (as did all RTV affiliates in the Eastern Time Zone) that was produced by Media General sister station WFLA-TV in Tampa, Florida. After switching to Me-TV, that program was dropped and My Lowcountry 3 was reduced to a thirty minute broadcast. WSAV operates a bureau located on Assembly Street/SC 48 covering the Capitol in Columbia. The operating expenses are shared among Media General's outlets in South Carolina.
