History:
Originally on analog channel 58, this station caters to the hotel crowd with tourist information programming.  It's one of the lower powered "full power" stations in the country, and may not actually be on the air as of 2016, using the license to force cable/satellite carriage across the entire Mobile-Pensacola TV market.
