WLMB channel 40 (digital 5) is an independent, Christian/family oriented TV station licensed to Toledo, Ohio, and serving the NW Ohio/SE Michigan area. The station's first call sign was issued as WXAE-TV on July 17, 1992. It adopted its current call-sign on May 17, 1994. However, the station did not commence broadcasting until October 19, 1998.[1]

WLMB's lineup features religious and children's shows in the mornings, classic TV series[2] afternoons and early evenings, and more religious programming during primetime and overnights. Some of these programs are provided to WLMB from FamilyNet and The Worship Network.[3]
