WJNK-LD is a low-powered religious television station licensed to and serving Nashville, Tennessee. The station is owned by Edge Spectrum Inc., broadcasting locally on digital UHF channel 34. [1]

History[edit]

The station signed on the air on June 25, 1986 under the ownership if Tiger Eye Broadcasting as W61AR, broadcasting on analog UHF channel 61. The station moved to analog channel 54 for a few months under the callsign W52AR from January until April 1989, when it returned to channel 61 and reverted to the station's original callsign. The station became WJNK-LP when it relocated to analog channel 34 in 1997, and had broadcasting on that channel ever since. From the station's sign on in 1986 until 1999, the station was an Independent Station and also carried FamilyNet as a secondary affiliation. On January 20, 1999, Tiger Eye Broadcasting sold WJNK-LP to 3ABN. The sale of the station was finalized on April 13, 1999 & at the same time, the station switched to broadcasting Religious Programming from 3ABN 24 hours a day, as the station has been broadcasting in that format & broadcasting programming from 3ABN ever since.[2]

On March 9, 2017, Three Angels Broadcasting Network filed to sell WJNK-LD to Edge Spectrum Inc. The sale & transfer was finalized on August 31, 2017. 3ABN would continue to operate the Station, Until October 1, 2018, when Edge Spectrum fully took over operations of WJNK.[3] Also under new ownership & on October 1, 2018, 3ABN Proclaim was discontinued from 34.2, to make way for a new religious network "Quo Vadis", which debuted on November 1, 2018, In addition, 3ABN Latino was also discontinued from 34.4, and it would be replaced a month later with Daystar on November 15, 2018.

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WJNK’s digital signal began broadcasting on digital UHF channel 28 in 2012. The station’s digital counterpart was operated on a construction permit in preparation of the Digital television transition for low-powered television stations that have not shut down their analog signals. However, on January 27, 2017, WJNK applied for a construction permit to relocate their digital channel from channel 28 to channel 34, where they broadcast their analog signal from 1997 to June 22, 2017, as WJNK flash-cut its analog signal to a digital signal on channel 34 on that day, while also ceasing its analog signal.
