WJEB-TV, virtual channel 59 (UHF digital channel 44), is a TBN owned-and-operated television station located in Jacksonville, Florida, United States. The station is owned by the Community Educational Television subsidiary of the Trinity Broadcasting Network. WJEB-TV maintains studio facilities located on Emerson Expressway/U.S. 1 in southeastern Jacksonville, and its transmitter is located on Newton Road in the city's Brackridge neighborhood.

Background[edit]

The station first signed on the air on May 29, 1991 and was built and signed on by the Trinity Broadcasting Network, under the licensee Jacksonville Educators Broadcasting, Inc., operated by the TBN subsidiary Community Educational Television. In addition to programming from TBN, the station airs educational programming to prepare local students for the General Educational Development test.

Digital television[1][edit]

This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.

On that date, WJEB terminated its analog signal, on UHF channel 59.[2] The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 44. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display WJEB's virtual channel as 59, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
