WFNA is the CW affiliate for the Mobile/Pensacola DMA. WFNA was acquired in December 2014 by Media General through the merger with LIN Media. To reinforce the local market identity, WFNA brands itself as “Gulf Coast CW” on-air, online, and in social media. Gulf Coast CW aggressively promotes the CW programming as well as various judge shows, Access, and Family Feud. In addition, the station engages with fans on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat. Gulf Coast CW launched their first local newscast in June 2016 at 9pm, covering Gulf Coast news throughout Mobile and Northwest Florida.
