After three years on the air as an independent station, WFLX became an affiliate of the FOX Television Network in 1985. WFLX led the pack as the #1 FOX affiliate in the U.S. for five consecutive years and continues to be among the top affiliates nationwide, based upon the Adult 18-49 and 25-54 demographic categories.
The growth in population of the West Palm Beach – Ft. Pierce – Vero Beach market in the last 20+ years has taken this market from the 68th to the 39th ranked market in the U.S. FOX29 regularly supports this growing community by consistent involvement with several nonprofit organizations and a commitment to broadcasting the only prime time newscast in the market, The FOX29 Ten O’clock News.
FOX29 also showcases one of the best program line-ups in South Florida. Whether it’s reliable favorites like “The Simpsons,” smash hits like “American Idol” and “24” in FOX Prime, FOX29 is leading the way. Also notable is our year round, world class sports coverage with NFL Football, Major League Baseball, and NASCAR, along with very successful syndicated classics like “Seinfeld,” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.”
On wflx.com, FOX29 regularly provides users with local news, station promotions, local events listings, severe weather information and community resources. Ask the Expert, Health Connections, Hot Ticket and Pet Connections are just a few examples of what our community-focused website has to offer.
