WTWW is a shortwave station located in Lebanon, Tennessee.

WTWW, according to their website, stands for "We Transmit World Wide".

WTWW, according to the FCC,[page needed] was originally licensed a construction permit as WBWW on June 30, 2009. Testing began in January 2010 and ending mid-February 2010. Testing frequencies used were 5.755 MHz and 9.48 MHz, and recorded by several listeners who uploaded the audio to YouTube.[citation needed]

Both the frequencies 5.755 MHz and 9.48 MHz and their transmitters were previously used by Christian shortwave outlet KAIJ in Dallas, Texas.

WTWW officially signed on at 1500 UTC on Friday, February 19, 2010 using the 9.48 MHz frequency at a low over-the-air power and streaming [1] with programming from the Scriptures for America broadcast network.[citation needed]
