About CBS 6 Albany

WRGB, channel 6, is a CBS-affiliated television station licensed to Schenectady, New York, United States and serving New York’s Capital District (Albany–Schenectady–Troy) as well as Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, WRGB is part of a duopoly with CW affiliate WCWN (channel 45) and the two stations share studios on Balltown Road in Niskayuna, New York. WRGB’s transmitter is located on the Helderberg Escarpment west of New Salem, a hamlet of New Scotland. WCWN additionally carries a simulcast of WRGB’s main channel in 720p high definition on subchannel 45.3 for the convenience of UHF viewers who don’t receive WRGB’s VHF signal.

WRGB is most notable for being among the first experimental television stations in the world. It began with test broadcasts in early 1928. Later that year the first daily programs were broadcast. It later became one of a handful of television stations licensed for commercial broadcasting operation before the end of World War II.
