WTCE-TV is a religious television station in Fort Pierce, Florida, broadcasting locally on channel 21 (digital 38) as an owned and operated affiliate of TBN, under the license name of Jacksonville Educators Broadcasting, Inc., part of the TBN-owned Community Educational Television group.

The station's transmitter is located at the station, on North 25th Street (Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.), in Fort Pierce.

In addition to programming from TBN, the station airs educational programming to prepare local students for the GED.

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.

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

WTCE-TV discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 21, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 38.[2] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 21.
