In the DFLW universe, Capital Cities sold WRHA-TV (the HonoluluRKO Network affiliate) instead of WTEN (it would make sense, as Capital Cities, which was based in Albany, would have a "hometown" station). It would switch from CBS to ABC as with real life in 1977, and would have been the secondary East Coast flagship of ABC during the Capital Cities/ABC years (the other East Coast flagship would be WABC-TV). As for me, WTEN would still be an ABC O&O, Nexstar's "main" Albany station would instead be another RKO affiliate, WAST-DT (WAST and WXXA would share space with WTEN, but would maintain completely separate operations from each other, a la KRON-TV)
I also thought of WPDE-TV, KBMT, and KDNL-TV being ABC O&Os in the DFLW universe (this would result in WWMB being owned by ABC in the DFLW universe. I mean, it's technically possible, as CBS owns two affiliates of Fox's MyNetworkTV (WBFS-TV and my hometown WSBK-TV), which is pretty odd in and of itself).
