WTKJ was originally a low-power independent in Philadelphia, New York; the station was sold by Tammy M. Celenza in June 2007 to EICB TV for $7,000. In 2017, WTKJ was transferred to Edge Spectrum, a company that seeks to use upcoming ATSC 3.0 standards to datacast via low-power UHF stations such as WTKJ.
As a low-power station, WTKJ-LP was not required to transition to digital broadcasting when full-power stations do so in 2009. It has voluntarily applied to flash-cut to digital operation on its existing frequency, UHF 19, with 1500 watts but has not yet made this transition.
WTKJ may be subject to co-channel interference by adjacent-market WSYT-DT 19 Syracuse as that station goes to its full licensed digital power, having abandoned former analogue channel UHF 68 in Syracuse, New York.
