WVNS-DT2 is the primary Fox and secondary MyNetworkTV-affiliated television station for Southern West Virginia. It is a second digital subchannel of CBS affiliate WVNS-TV which is owned by West Virginia Media Holdings. Over-the-air, the station broadcasts a digital signal on VHF channel 8.2 from a transmitter on Keeney's Knob between Alderson and I-64. WVNS-DT2 is also offered on Suddenlink cable systems. In Beckley, it is on channel 10; in Hinton and Princeton on channel 3; and on Comcast channel 2 (channel 434 in high definition) in Bluefield. The station is known on-air as FOX West Virginia and its parent station has studios on Old Cline Road in Ghent along I-77. Programming from MyNetworkTV airs weeknights from midnight until 2AM.

Syndicated programming on WVNS-DT2 includes: Two and a Half Men, How I Met Your Mother, Judge Joe Brown, and Judge Judy. The Fox affiliation on this second digital subchannel was acquired September 13, 2006 following a Summer 2006 retransmission dispute between Charleston's WVAH-TV and Suddenlink Communications. The demise of Foxnet on September 12 also played a role. Although it is carried on a digital subchannel, this is practically a return of Fox to WVNS after a five year absence.


There is a nightly 10 o'clock newscast on WVNS-DT2 as well as a 7 a.m. rebroadcast of the second hour of the main channel's weekday morning news. During all broadcasts, weather forecasts are provided by WOWK's meteorologists from that channel's facilities on 5th Avenue in Downtown Huntington. In addition, the weekend prime time broadcast originates from WOWK.
