WGUD-LD is a low power television station in Pascagoula, Mississippi, broadcasting locally on channel 51, locally-owned by Scranton Broadcasting Company, LLC.

History[edit]

The original construction permit for the station was granted on October 29, 1987 for operation on channel 46;[1] the station was assigned the call letters W46AV.[2] Originally owned by Tel-Radio Communications Properties, the permit was transferred to the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) in 1988.[3] A license to cover was issued August 16, 1990.[4] It moved to channel 51 in 2000[5] and became W51CU.[2]

TBN sold W51CU to Scranton Broadcasting Company, LLC in 2010.[6] Soon after the sale was approved (but while still under TBN ownership), the station changed its call letters to WGUD-LP.[2] Scranton relaunched WGUD on September 1, 2010 as a FamilyNet affiliate, with some local programming. On January 4, 2013, the station changed its call sign to WGUD-LD.

Digital television[edit]

WGUD currently has a construction permit to move its signal to digital channel 38.[6] A previous such permit, granted in 2006, expired on June 19, 2009. Around 2011, WGUD consummated its relocation, and began broadcasting three subchannels, with programming from FamilyNet, Me-TV and Pursuit Channel.
