WTSF TV is the area's only 24 hour Christian television station.  WTSF is locally owned and broadcasts from their studio in Ashland, KY. 
WTSF is an interdenominational station reaching to those of all faiths.  It strives to present the best Christian programming available representing a cross section of all Christian denominations.
WTSF began as a vision of the First Baptist Church of Proctorville back in 1976.  The first day of broadcasting was in 1983, nearly 7 years after the process was started.  At that time the station was a mixture of Christian and secular family programming.  Within a very short time it became obvious that the station would have to be either all secular or all Christian.  Bro. Claude Messinger stepped in and took on the burden of continuing the work as a totally Christian station. 
The early years were extremely difficult both physically and financially but he was determined that the work would continue. 
In 1996 Bro Claude was called to heaven very suddenly.  It was a turning point for WTSF.  Could the station survive without their leader?  God had started the work and HE was not going to allow it to fail.  Others stepped in and the work continued. 
Today WTSF broadcasts to over 200,000 cable households in Ky, Ohio, & WV sharing the good news of Jesus Christ..  For the past 16 years the vision has shown brightly.  The addition of the Charleston viewing area is one more part of that vision fulfilled. 
Tune in to WTSF TV and catch the vision.
