WCTX, virtual channel 59 ( UHF digital channel 39), is a television station licensed to New Haven, Connecticut, United States, serving as the MyNetworkTV affiliate for the Hartford-New Haven television market. The station is owned by Media General, as part of a duopoly with ABC affiliate WTNH (channel 8). The two stations share studios on Elm Street in Downtown New Haven; however, master control and some internal operations originate from hub facilities at Media General-owned NBC affiliate WWLP in Chicopee, Massachusetts. WCTX's transmitter is located in Hamden.

WCTX is available on channel 9 on almost all of Connecticut's cable systems, this is reflected in the station's on-air branding "MyTV9". Like sister station WTNH, WCTX has a large Fairfield County audience as well. This area is part of the New York City television market, which is where MyNetworkTV flagship WWOR-TV is based. WCTX is considered an alternate ABC affiliate, airing that network's programs when WTNH is unable to do so such as during extended breaking news coverage or a local special.
