WELF-TV (digital channel 16 and PSIP virtual channel 23) is a religious television station licensed to Dalton, Georgia and serving the Chattanooga, Tennessee media market owned and operated by the Trinity Broadcasting Network. The transmitter for the station is located in suburban Rising Fawn, Georgia.
The station began operations on May 10, 1994. Outside of limited local programming in its history, WELF has mainly carried TBN's national service without deviation.
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.
WELF-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 23, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 16. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 23.
