WEID-LP is a digital low-power television station in South Bend, Indiana, broadcasting locally on channel 16 (virtual channel 18). This station is owned-and-operated by Word of God Fellowship.

Originally licensed to Elkhart, Indiana, on March 16, 2006, the station was granted a construction permit to begin converting operations to digital television.

TBN took W18CF silent on March 8, 2010, citing declining support, which has been attributed to the digital transition.[1] Eleven days later, on March 19, a deal was reached to sell W18CF to Word of God Fellowship, owner of the Daystar Television Network.[2]

On October 13, 2010, the station changed its calls to WEID-LP.[3] On November 8, it filed a displacement application to operate a digital signal on channel 16 (formerly occupied by the analog signal of WNDU-TV).[4] The application was granted a construction permit on January 25, 2011. The digital signal was licensed to South Bend on December 1, 2014.
