Hattiesburg Gets Fox Affiliate

New deal brings 'Glee' to DMA No. 167

Hattiesburg has its first ever Fox affiliate, according to the network, in WHPM.

It's owned by Waypoint Media, which manages a Fox affiliate in Meridian.

Hattiesburg-Laurel (Miss.) represents DMA No. 167. Raycom's NBC affiliate WDAM is a giant there, while Media General has CBS affiliate WHLT.

WHPM's Fox affiliation was previously reported in the Hattiesburg American newspaper.

WHPM airs on channel 6 on Comcast and channel 23.1 over the air.
