History[edit]

Launched March 2, 1993, W20BE channel 20 went defunct within six months.[1] The license was reactivated on September 27, 1995, becoming W20BE once more. What followed was a move to channel 27 as W27BS (January 9, 1997) and an attempt to move to channel 61, which would have made the station W61DD – the same day the change was made in FCC records (July 1, 1999), the calls changed again to W31CD and the station moved to channel 31. On May 31, 2000, W31CD became WPMF-LP, and a year later, WPMF received a class A television license (though its calls retained the -LP suffix). The station received its license to broadcast digitally on January 3, 2014, at which point the call sign changed to WPMF-CD.
