The ABC Television Network has signed two new affiliates, bringing its total to 218 affiliated stations.

Joining the network fold are Metro Video Productions-owned WLOP-TV, in Lima, Ohio, and Chambers Communications’ KOHD-TV in Bend, Ore. The station in Lima, the 185th-largest TV market in the country, formerly was an affiliate of UPN, which was shuttered along with The WB to make way for The CW.

KOHD is a new station in Bend, the 196th market.

John Rouse, senior VP of affiliate relations for ABC, announced the deals.
