WLJC-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 65, in July 2007. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition VHF channel 7. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 65, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
WLJC-TV's digital signal covers much of eastern Kentucky, thanks to its 185,000 watts of power. The signal coverage area includes the Metro Lexington area, Somerset, Hazard, and it goes as far east as Pikeville, as far north as Maysville, as far west as Danville, and as far south as the Tennessee state line in areas around Middlesboro and Williamsburg.
