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

WELF-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 23, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 16.[3] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 23.
