Public license information
WTWV, virtual and UHF digital channel 23, is a religious independent television station licensed to Memphis, Tennessee, United States. Owned by Marion, Illinois-based Tri-State Christian Television, it is sister to Senatobia, Mississippi-licensed TCT owned-and-operated station WWTW (channel 34). The two stations share studios on Kirby Whitten Road in the northeast section of Memphis and transmitter facilities in Ellendale, Tennessee.
The station was originally scheduled to launch on May 22, 2008, but WTWV's debut was delayed due to technical difficulties. WTWV officially signed on the air on May 28, 2008, broadcasting on UHF channel 14, but has later relocated to channel 23.
On May 28, 2020, Flinn Broadcasting Corporation announced that it would sell WTWV and WWTW, along with sister stations KCWV in Duluth, Minnesota, WWJX in Jackson, Mississippi, WBIH in Selma, Alabama, and WFBD in Destin, Florida, to Marion, Illinois-based Tri-State Christian Television for an undisclosed price pending Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval. The stations would become owned-and-operated stations of the TCT network and the second and third full-power religious stations in the Memphis area.
The station's digital channel is multiplexed:
