WHLT is the CBS- affiliated television station for Southeastern Mississippi's Pine Belt that is licensed to Hattiesburg. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 22 from a transmitter in northeastern unincorporated Forrest County. The station can also be seen on Comcast channel 10 and in high definition on digital channel 433. Owned by Media General, WHLT maintains studios on U.S. 49 in Hattiesburg. Syndicated programming on the station includes Divorce Court, Family Feud, Andy Griffith, and Cash Cab among others.
While identified as a separate station in its own right, WHLT is actually operated as a semi-satellite of WJTV in Jackson. As such, it clears all network programming as provided by its parent. The station airs some of the same syndicated shows as WJTV but at a different time. In addition, WHLT airs its own local commercials during all programming and legal identifications. Its second and third digital subchannels carry programming from The CW (via The CW Plus) and Ion Television, respectively.
