Station History:
WPAN came on in 1984; the calls stand for Florida PANhandle. Was a typical independent, with a mix of syndicated re-runs and movies. The station went dark, came back on and then went under again. In its third try, it has managed to stay on the air for a few years, airing a lot of infomercials, large chunks of ValueVision home shopping and simulcasts of BLAB TV in prime time. (BLAB TV is the local cable access channel of Cox Cable in Pensacola.) At one time, it operated a translator on channel 69 in Mobile, which under the rules prevailing at that time, required the cable company in Mobile to carry it.
