Public license information
WPGD-TV (channel 50) is a religious television station licensed to Hendersonville, Tennessee, United States, serving the Nashville area as an owned-and-operated station of the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). The station's transmitter is located in Whites Creek, Tennessee, just off I-24 and Old Hickory Boulevard. Its studios are located at Trinity Music City on Music Village Boulevard in Hendersonville, which also acts as a host studio for several TBN programs and serves as a religious tourist attraction, in addition to its former role as the estate of the late country artist Conway Twitty.
Although it was granted a construction permit on September 17, 1987, the station did not sign on the air until September 24, 1992 as Nashville's over-the-air outlet of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, which it has exclusively broadcast since sign-on. Its original analog transmitter was located along TN 109 in unincorporated Sumner County between Portland and Gallatin.
At one point during the 1990s, WPGD also operated a low-power translator, W36AK, serving Nashville proper due to the main transmitter's location, until it was discontinued at an unknown date.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|50.1||720p||16:9||TBN HD||Main TBN programming|
TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.
