- Operated by
Flinn Broadcasting out of Memphis, this station began by airing
mostly infomercials. It came on the air in May 2002 as an
analog station, but later flash cut to digital on the existing
channel. For the early life of the station, it ran mostly
infomercials, despite being listed as an affiliate of the America
One network. In January 2011 the station picked up the Legacy
TV network, which features religious programming. They have,
however, chosen to retain some secular programming and
infomercials. In March 2013 the station added Blab TV
programming during the early evening hours. Blab TV originates
from the Florida panhandle and is infomercials targeting the
Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach and Mobile markets, but the version
this station is presenting is targeted towards the Montgomery area
and has its own website and Facebook pages. Whether it will
last is anyone's guess, as the station has announced plans to
affiliate with the upcoming Soul of the South network, an
African-American targeted entertainment and news channel slated to
launch in July of 2013.
As part of the FCC repacking process, this station received a permit
to relocate from RF channel 29 to 35 in late July 2017.
