WLPD-CD is a Class A low-power television station in Plano, Illinois, United States, broadcasting locally on channel 30 airing the Hillsong Channel. Founded June 30, 1988 as W30AL, the station is now owned by Trinity Broadcasting Network. It holds a construction permit to build a low-power companion digital tv station on channel 18.

It used to simulcast on former sister station W24AJ Aurora, broadcasting on channel 24, before it was sold to Polnet in the summer of 2009. In the 2011 edition of the Sandwich Fair Times, they stated that they would sign on "DTV 35" in November, 2011, with two additional subchannels yet to be determined, with "twice the amount of power as before".

The station was sold to LocusPoint Networks for $6 million on May 10, 2013.[1] It was then sold to Trinity Broadcasting Network in late January 2018 for $13 million; LocusPoint had already established a channel sharing agreement with TBN on WLPD-CD, which moved their La Salle-licensed WWTO-TV (channel 35) onto the space in November 2017 and is now licensed to Naperville.[2]
