The station is owned by Ion Media Networks, as part of a duopoly with Ion Television owned-and-operated station WIPX-TV (channel 63, also licensed to Bloomington). The two stations share offices on Production Drive (near I-74/I-465) in southwestern Indianapolis and transmitter facilities on County Road 50 in rural southwestern Johnson County (due southeast of Trafalgar).

HistoryEdit

The station first signed on the air on August 27, 1987 and was built and signed on by the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).

TBN entered into an option agreement with Ion Media Networks on November 14, 2017, which gave Ion the option to acquire the licenses of WCLJ-TV and three other TBN stations that had sold their spectrum in the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s spectrum auction; Ion exercised the option on May 24, 2018. The sale was completed on September 25, 2018, creating a duopoly with existing Ion Television station WIPX-TV.
