WPGD-TV is a religious television station licensed to Hendersonville, Tennessee, United States and serving the entirety of the Nashville market, as well as Bowling Green, Kentucky to the north. It is one of the flagship owned-and-operated stations for the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). It broadcasts a digital signal on UHF channel 33 (remapped to the station's former analog channel 50 via PSIP) from a transmitter in Whites Creek, just off I-24 and Old Hickory Boulevard. Studios and local broadcasting facilities are located at Trinity Music City on Music Village Boulevard in Hendersonville, which also acts as a host studio for several TBN programs and serves as a religious tourist attraction, in addition to its former role as the estate of the late country artist Conway Twitty.

HistoryEdit

Although it was granted a construction permit on September 17, 1987, the station didn't sign on the air until September 24, 1992 as Nashville's over-the-air outlet of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, which it has exclusively broadcast since sign-on. Its original analog transmitter was located along TN 109 in unincorporated Sumner County between Portland and Gallatin.

At one point during the 1990s, WPGD also operated a low-power translator, W36AK, serving Nashville proper due to the main transmitter's location, until it was discontinued at an unknown date.
