The original UHF Ch 20 was filled by WJMR-TV which is now WVUE and a Fox affiliate. At that time WJMR was a primary CBS and secondary ABC service which moved to that location from Ch 61 on July 20, 1955. It switched its slot two more times – once in 1959 to Ch 13 and then on Sep 6, 1962 to channel 12 – before eventually settling on Ch 8 on June 8, 1970.

LeSEA Broadcasting bought the construction permit for CH 20 in 1991 after the approval of Federal Communications Commission. The channel went on air on Oct 10, 1994 and broadcasted Christian programs originally. It also mixed the religious content with family-entertainment syndicated programs and movies. It rejected an offer to get affiliated with UPN when it launched on Jan 16, 1995.

WHNO started airing CBS This Morning in 1998 and replaced it with The Early Show in 1999 and carried it until 2002 before losing it to WUPL. It also opted to air some of Christian-targeted paid programs in off-peak hours in 2000. The Christian station was severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina in Aug 2005. The channel couldn’t return before November and offered WHT programming until Dec 3, 2005.

In the last month of 2005, the broadcaster resumed its regular local lineup and local advertising. WHNO released its two LP stations in Colorado Springs and Las Vegas to Christian Television Network for USD 5.7mn on April 23, 2018. Analog to digital transmission was completed on Jan 16, 2019.
