LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- Officials at Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) announced the launch of a new full-power television station in Orlando, Florida. WTGL TV, Channel 52, is poised to reach over four million viewers in the Orlando and Cocoa Beach metropolitan areas with TBN’s wide range of innovative faith-based programming.


“We’re thrilled to welcome the Orlando metro area to our growing TBN family,” said Paul Crouch Jr., TBN’s Vice President of Administration. “It means that nearly four million people will now enjoy the benefits of TBN’s inspirational programming 24 hours per day. We are looking forward to getting acquainted with local pastors and members of the faith communities in Orlando and Coca Beach and producing local ‘Praise the Lord’ programs with area churches to enrich the community.”


As the world’s largest religious network and America’s most watched faith channel, TBN treats spirituality as a normal part of daily life. In doing so, it continues successfully to tally an ambitious, expanding list of landmark TV programming and feature films suitable for the entire family.


“TBN is home to tens of millions of Americans seeking a quality television experience,” said Bob Higley, Vice President of Cable and Satellite Relations. “TBN seeks to do more than merely entertain. TBN’s goal is to inspire people, engage their minds, and encourage their spirit through contemporary, positive programming that speaks to the heart.”


TBN’s hit reality show “Travel the Road” is one such offering. The weekly program chronicles the adventures of two young missionaries traveling remote hideaways all over the world, spreading the gospel. The show covers 25 countries, and stretches across 40,000 miles as missionaries Tim and Will face daring exploits, on-the-edge surprises, and incredible discoveries.


And coming up in 2007, TBN will debut the highly anticipated big-screen motion picture One Night With The King, starring silver-screen legends Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif. Based on the best-selling novel Hadassah: One Night With The King by Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen, this dramatic film chronicles the rise of the Old testament hero Esther from peasant to princess, her courageous role in the redemption of her people from destruction and death, and her winning of the love of the most powerful man in the kingdom -- by seeking his heart rather than the riches of his kingdom.


“TBN’s family fare provides what scores of American households are eager to engage in –high-quality entertainment matched with contemporary content that nurtures family values and spiritual beliefs,” said Crouch. “We’re proud to welcome viewers in the Orlando and Cocoa Beach area to TBN’s faith-based television experience.”
