WJYL-CD, virtual and UHF digital channel 16, is a TBN-affiliated television station serving Louisville, Kentucky, United States that is licensed to Clarksville, Indiana. The station is owned by Dominion Media, an arm of the Clarksville-based Celebration Harvest Church, which also owns independent station WWJS-CD (channel 45). WJYL-CD maintains offices located on Eastern Boulevard (just west of I-65) in Clarksville, and its transmitter located in rural northeastern Floyd County (northeast of Floyds Knobs, Indiana).


The station was founded in 1986 as W05BA, originally broadcasting on VHF channel 5. The calls were modified to W05BE in 1987; in 2002, it received a lettered callsign as WVHF-LP and moved to UHF channel 45. The station obtained Class A license status in 2004, becoming WVHF-CA. In 2008, its calls were changed to WNDA-CA, before switching again to WJYL-CA in 2009 (what is now WWJS-CD formerly used the WJYL-CA call letters from 2002 to 2009, and the WNDA-CA calls from 2009 to 2010). The station flash-cut its digital signal into operation on UHF channel 16 in February 2009.

At one time, WJYL-CD operated a translator, W65CX, broadcasting near Elizabethtown, Kentucky. [2]
