WMUR-TV, virtual and VHF digital channel 9, is an ABC-affiliated television station licensed to Manchester, New Hampshire, United States. The station is owned by the Hearst Television subsidiary of Hearst Communications. WMUR-TV's studios are located on South Commercial Street in downtown Manchester, and its transmitter is located on the south peak of Mount Uncanoonuc in Goffstown.

Manchester is largely considered its own market, despite being part of the larger Boston television market; that city's ABC affiliate, WCVB-TV (channel 5), is also owned by Hearst. As a result, WMUR is one of several New Hampshire-based television stations with a news operation. In addition to WCVB-TV, WMUR-TV shares common coverage areas with four sister stations, the Portland, Maine duopoly of ABC affiliate WMTW and TDN affiliate WPXT; and the Burlington, Vermont duopoly of CW affiliate WNNE in Montpelier and Plattsburgh, New York-based NBC affiliate WPTZ.

WMUR was one of four ABC affiliates that was kept by Hearst after it sold off its Disney Network affiliates to Walt Disney Television Stations.
