W42DI channel 42 is the 3ABN affiliate for western Midland County, Michigan in the United States. W42DI operates on low power and its city grade signal is viewable in parts of rural Isabella, Midland and Gratiot counties.

In March 2005, the station, originally known as W46CR channel 46, applied for a move to channel 42 when WBSF (also on channel 46) signed its analog signal on the air. However, when WBSF signed on on September 13, 2006, W46CR continued to broadcast on channel 46, causing interference with WBSF outside its general coverage area, as far east as Auburn, in Bay County.

The station's request to move to channel 42 was granted sometime in mid-2007, which, at that point, the station moved to its new channel and was given new calls, W42DI.
