WPGD-TV, virtual channel 50 (UHF digital channel 33), is a TBN owned-and-operated television station licensed to Hendersonville, Tennessee, United States and serving the Nashville television market, as well as Bowling Green, Kentucky to the north. The station is owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network. WPGD-TV's transmitter is located in Whites Creek, just off I-24 and Old Hickory Boulevard. The station's studios 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.

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.[1] 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.[2][3]

Digital television

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.[4]

WPGD-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 50 on that date. The station's digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 51 to channel 33.[5] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 50.
