WPXP-TV is an Ion Television owned-and-operated television station licensed to Lake Worth, Florida, United States, serving the Gold and Treasure Coasts of South Florida. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 36 (or virtual channel 67 via PSIP) from a transmitter near Greenacres, Florida. The station is owned by West Palm Beach-based Ion Media Networks, and shares a sales office with Miami-licensed sister station WPXM-TV (channel 35) on Northeast 20th Avenue in North Miami. On cable, the station can be seen on Comcast Xfinity channel 8 (in Martin, Palm Beach, Okeechobee, and southern St. Lucie counties) and channel 7 (in Indian River and northern St. Lucie counties), and in high definition on digital channel 439.

As it is the Ion station for West Palm Beach, where Ion's headquarters are located, it can be considered one of the network's flagship stations, though it has never originated any content for the national network, either as Pax TV, i, or Ion Television.

History[]

The first application for the station was made in 1984, and the WHBI callsign was assigned in June 1987 until the end of 1997. In January 1998, it finally went on-air after more than a decade of modified and expired construction permits, and took its present call letters upon joining the erstwhile Pax TV network. All applications prior to 2003 were by Hispanic Broadcasting, Inc., before becoming Paxson West Palm Beach Licanse, Inc. (a holding company, which is common in broadcasting), though there was no application listed to assign the station to another licensee.

WPXP and sister station WPXM carried Florida Marlins baseball games from 2002 to 2005.
