The channel first signed on air on March 5, 1970 under the ownership of Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation. After maintaining its position as a member of NET: National Educational Television for a few months, it switched of PBS in October. Despite being one of the two VHF channels in Tri-State, EVSC soon started to seek a full-service public television service. In a year’s time, WNIN was reduced to USD 59,000.

Unable to recover from the losses, the channel went off air in 1972. A year later, a group of Tri-State citizens founded Southwest Indiana Public Television which later became Tri-State Public Teleplex and finally named as Tri-State Public Media and brought the channel back to life. Carpenter House was purchased in 1986 and retired the mortgage on it 3 years later.

WNIN also powers two cable stations WNIN Learn on cable 12 and WNIN Create on Cable 13. It airs local Government-access television (GATV) to broadcast Vanderburgh County and Evansville City government meetings while WNIN Create simulcasts national create channel featuring creative content, cooking programs and kids programming.
