Public license information
WDDN-LD, virtual and UHF digital channel 23, is a low-powered Daystar owned-and-operated television station licensed to the American capital city of Washington, District of Columbia. The station is owned by the Daystar Television Network.
Communicasting Corporation signed on W42AJ November 18, 1988 as the Washington market's first Telemundo affiliate. When current affiliate W64BW (now WZDC-CD) signed on late 1993, the two stations are recorded as both carrying the network's programming.
The station, then known as WSIT-LP, was sold to Paxson Communications in 1996 and Capital Media in 1999. Capital Media assigned the famous callsign WKRP. WKRP-LP moved to channel 23 in 2003 in order to avoid interference from WVPY in Front Royal, Virginia. Daystar purchased the station in 2005.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
