It was also an affiliate of America's Store until the network's shutdown on April 3, 2007. Subsequently, WBTL aired paid programming.
WBTL-LP had an application to increase power to 150 kW to better serve Toledo's suburbs as well as Bedford Township, Michigan. This was later dismissed, however a new application was filed. Had it been approved, the tower would have moved to Monroe County and served Monroe and the Downriver Detroit suburbs. However, since there was no request to change the city of license of Toledo, this would have been in violation, since the proposed signal would not reach the city. This application was also dismissed.
On September 16, 2009, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) declared the station's license forfeited, and removed the WBTL-LP call sign from their database. The FCC took this action due to the station having been silent for a period of greater than twelve months.
