WORO-DT is a full-power, educational/religious television station located in San Juan, Puerto Rico transmitting over digital channel 13. The station is owned by Grupo RTC under Puerto Rico's Roman Catholic Church - San Juan Archdiocese, and is branded as TeleOro Canal 13.
This station was formerly WPRV-TV. During part of the 1980s, the station was affiliated with ABC and in the late 1980s and early 1990s with Fox (WUJA originally had the Fox affiliation from 1986 to 1989).
Since 2002, WORO leased its prime time hours to local producer Angelo Medina for his sport programming block branded as Deportes 13. During these hours, Deportes 13 transmit sport-related programming and events such as MLB, National Basketball Association (NBA), Liga de Voleibol Superior Masculino among others.
It was in lengthy discussion with Dish Network. When the station changed format, Dish gave up and dropped talks.
Singer, writer, producer Silverio Perez had a variety show called Buenas Noches con Silverio (Good Night with Silverio).
In August 2008, TeleOro announced that the station would develop a news program titled "Hora Informativa". The production's goal is to cover local news as well as material that other channels consider "soft". Segments are led by Luis Penchi and José Ángel Cordero, and covers controversial themes that might not be covered otherwise due to the station's religious focus. Today, WORO produces local news (branded as Noticias 13), weeknights at 7:00 and 11:00 as well as Saturday nights at 5:00 and Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m.
On September 20, 2017, in the Aftermath of Hurricane Maria, WORO-DT was forced to go off the air, suffering the station's building, transmitter and equipment. The station was transmitting on a sub-channel of Hector Marcano's WWXY-LD on channel 38.3 until August 1, 2018. The station returned to the air on August 27, 2018 from an provisional antenna. On February 5, 2019, WORO-DT resumes full-power from its new and powerful transmitter from the top of El Yunque, that covers the entire island. Repairs caused by the old transmitter equipment were made by the engineering department.
WORO-DT's digital signal is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP short name||Programming|
|13.1||720p||16:9||WORO HD||Main WORO-DT programming|
|13.2||480i||4:3||EWTN SD||Canal 13.2 / EWTN Español|
|13.4||WORO SD||Secondary WORO-DT programming|
On February 17, 2009, WORO signed off its analog signal and completed its move to digital.
