WPVN-CD is a Class A Digital television station that is licensed to Aurora, Illinois and serves the Chicago area, and is owned by ethnic broadcaster Polnet Communications & is the Chicago affiliate for Tuff TV. This station became a Retro Television Network affiliate for the Chicago television market on November 13, 2010 (ending June 30, 2013), but the main purpose of the station is to relocate much of the ethnic programming removed by Weigel Broadcasting in December 2010 when they decided to end carrying it over WCIU-DT6.
On March 28, 2011, WPVN-CA applied to move its transmitting facilities to the Trump International Hotel & Tower from its current analog & digital locations. The application was approved on August 31, 2011, along with getting Class A digital status on October 7, 2011.
