WLFG, virtual channel 68 (UHF digital channel 49), is an independent religious station licensed to Grundy, Virginia, in the United States. It serves the Tri-Cities area of northeastern Tennessee and southwestern Virginia. The station is owned by Abingdon, Virginia-based Living Faith Ministries. WLFG's transmitter is located near Hansonville, Virginia.

The station's programming is relayed on two satellite stations: WAGV (virtual channel 44) in Harlan, Kentucky (which shares transmitter facilities with WLFG) and WLFB (virtual and UHF digital channel 40) in Bluefield, West Virginia (with transmitter atop East River Mountain, south of Bluefield, Virginia). WAGV was the first to broadcast exclusively in digital following a malfunction at its analog transmitter.

HistoryEdit

Living Faith Television was founded by The Reverend Buford Smith who claimed that God had given him a vision to build a TV station in Virginia. The station grew from the original station in Grundy to include the other three transmitters.

Rev. Smith was pastor of Tookland Pentecostal Church in Grundy until his death in May 2003. His son, Michael Smith, was president of the station until Buford Smith's death, when he became president and CEO of Living Faith Television.

Tookland Pentecostal Church was a major financier when the station was founded broke most of its ties with the station after it declared its independence in 2006.

Living Faith Television is now under the control the board of Living Faith Television, with Mike Smith as president and CEO and wife Lisa Smith as CFO. Other personalities are Mary Smith (wife of the late Buford Smith), Laverne Tripp and Fred Schmidt, among others.
