WTBM-CD (channel 24) is a low-power, Class A television station in Birmingham, Alabama, United States, affiliated with the Spanish-language Telemundo network. It is owned by Gray Television alongside Fox affiliate WBRC (channel 6). The two stations studios atop Red Mountain (between Vulcan Trail and Valley View Drive) in southeastern Birmingham; WTBM-CD's transmitter is located along Golden Crest Drive, also atop Red Mountain.
WTBM-CD's signal is relayed on low-power, class A digital translator, WJMY-CD (channel 25) in Tuscaloosa.
The station launched its current affiliation on September 1, 2022.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|24.1||1080i||16:9||WTBM-CD||Main WTBM-CD programming / Telemundo|
The then-WBXA-CD discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over VHF channel 2, on June 3, 2015, a little under three months prior to the official date on which Class A low-power analog television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 24.
