The station was founded in December 1985. WMPV was the only full-powered station in the Mobile–Pensacola viewing area to transmit an analog signal past February 17, 2009, according to a list from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|

|21.5||TBN SD||SD simulcast of DT1|
TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.
WMPV-TV discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 21, on June 12, 2009. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 20. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 21.
