-TV (later WHOA-TV and now WNCF) started up as Montgomery's ABC affiliate, but WSLA continued to broadcast ABC programming to the western part of the market because of UHF's limited coverage at the time.

WALA lost CBS programming to WKRG-TV (channel 5) when it signed on, and when WEAR-TV (channel 3) relinquished CBS programming (when Pensacola was a separate market) and became a full-time ABC affiliate for both Mobile and Pensacola in 1955.

In 1969, Roywood sold WALA to the Universal Communications Corporation, the television arm of the "Detroit News".
