WWTW, virtual channel 34 (UHF digital channel 23), is a Tri-State Christian Television (TCT) owned-and-operated station serving Memphis, Tennessee, United States, that is licensed to Senatobia, Mississippi. It is a sister station to Memphis-licensed religious independent WTWV (channel 23).[2] The two stations share studios on Kirby Whitten Road in the northeast section of Memphis and transmitter facilities in Ellendale, Tennessee.

Until 2018, WWTW's transmitter was located near Arkabutla Lake in northwestern Tate County, Mississippi. To expand its coverage area, the station was simulcast on WTWV's second digital subchannel.[3]

History

WWTW signed on the air as an independent station on December 7, 2010. Branded as ACME Classics TV, the station mainly aired classic television shows, mostly public domain content.[4]

On May 28, 2020, Flinn Broadcasting Corporation announced that it would sell WWTW and WTWV, along with sister stations KCWV in Duluth, Minnesota, WWJX in Jackson, Mississippi, WBIH in Selma, Alabama, and WFBD in Destin, Florida, to Marion, Illinois-based Tri-State Christian Television for an undisclosed price pending Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval. The stations would become owned-and-operated stations of the TCT network and the second and third full-power religious stations in the Memphis area.[1]
