W16AL is a low-power television station licensed to Burlington, Vermont. It was previously a repeater that broadcast programming from the Trinity Broadcasting Network, via satellite; in recent years, due to TBN's financial problems, many of its repeaters were sold to other parties, including W16AL, which was sold to Luken Communications, the parent company of Retro Television Network, under the licensee name "Digital Networks - Northeast".[1] Many of these stations, including W16AL, was acquired by Luken from the Minority Media and Telecom Council (MMTC). [2]

The station broadcasts on UHF channel 16, with no current digital channel. W16AL currently holds a construction permit to convert to digital broadcasting.
