WSCP-LP is an independent low-power television station licensed to Bellefonte, Pennsylvania and targeting the State College area. WSCP-LP is owned by Pathway Community Radio Inc. The station's on-air name is Pennsylvania Channel 13, and the station's transmitter is located southwest of State College on the Pine Grove Mills Mountain.


The station first began its broadcasting operations in 1990 as W13BY under the original ownership of George W. Kimble, however W13BY was first licensed as a station or had a construction permit on November 30, 1988.[1] At first, it was an affiliate of The Box music video network, and later a translator station of Johnstown NBC affiliate WJAC-TV (Channel 6).

In 2005, the station was purchased by Pathway Community Radio, which retransmitted Pittsburgh's WPCB-TV/Cornerstone Television (via Altoona satellite WKBS) temporarily in a transition period until the station began their own programming schedule.

In 2005, the station became a Class A operation. On May 5, 2008, the station received their permanent calls of WSCP-CA. On June 25, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission change the WSCP-CA calls to DWSCP-CA possibly that the WSCP-CA broadcast lincense was going to be deleted.[2] About two months later on August 5, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission restored DWSCP-CA call letters back to the WSCP-CA calls.[3] On May 3, 2011, the station requested a change from class A to low-power status, and the station's call sign was changed to WSCP-LP.
