NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- WABC-TV, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company, has been broadcasting to the New York City metropolitan area since August 10, 1948.

Today, it's the most-watched TV station in the United States.

In 1986, Capital Cities Communications purchased ABC Television, including WABC-TV.

ABC began construction of its headquarters at 7 Lincoln Square in 1977. Both buildings were completed in June 1979 and WABC-TV moved its offices from 77 West 66th Street to 7 Lincoln Square on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City.

In 1996 WABC-TV became part of the Walt Disney Co. when Disney acquired Capital Cities/ABC.
