WTKJ-LP, channel 19 is a Christian religious television station in Watertown, New York, owned by EICB TV. It has broadcast on Channel 19 in Watertown since August 2008[1]

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. [2]

Digital transition[edit]

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.
