History:
This station elected to discontinue analog broadcasts sometime before the new June 12th deadline.  Boosted power from 500 to 851 kW in April 2011.  In 2014 the JCTV music videos channel was discontinued, and a Christian youth oriented network called JUCE took its place.  In 2015, Smile of a Child moved to the -.3 part time and this subchannel is now labeled "COMBO".  TBN Salsa launched on the -.5 subchannel in its place.
As part of the FCC spectrum repacking processing, this station received a permit in mid-July to relocate from RF channel 46 to 28, with no other real technical changes aside from a drop in power.
