TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.
WTPC-TV (as WHRE) shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 21, on February 17, 2009, and "flash-cut" its digital signal into operation on VHF channel 7. Because it was granted an original construction permit after the FCC finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997. The station did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station, using PSIP to display WTPC-TV's virtual channel as 21 on digital television receivers.
