Stations edit

FBN programming is featured on six full-powered stations and 11 translators, as well as 21 additional affiliated stations and translators, most of which are owned and operated by independent Baptist churches, which carry Fundamental Broadcasting Network's programming either in-part or in-whole. FBN's flagship station is WOTJ 90.7 FM in Newport, North Carolina, which began broadcasting December 12, 1988.[7][4][8]

The Fundamental Broadcasting Network formerly operated two 50,000-watt shortwave stations, WTJC, which began broadcasting in 1999, and WBOH, which began broadcasting in 2002.[9][10][11] WBOH ceased broadcasting in 2010.[12]
