Still family-owned, we help local and national clients reach more than 3 million people with out-of home advertising and signage that are more than attractive marketing tools-they`re art in the air.

When WSJV first signed on the air March 25, 1954, we were one of the first UHF stations in the country. The South Bend - Elkhart market was somewhat unique in that it was required to use UHF channels because of the competing VHF channels in the Chicago area. Originally an NBC affiliate, WSJV became an ABC affiliate about one year later.
In 1961, ABC began to broadcast some of their programs in color. WSJV became equipped to broadcast locally in color in 1966 when the first color tape and film equipment was purchased. Then in 1968, WSJV bought two color television cameras, and from then on all locally originated programs were broadcast in color.
In 1971 and 1972, the station was completely remodeled and enlarged to its present facility. In 1975, the Truth Publishing Company sold WSJV to Quincy Newspapers, Inc. in Illinois, a corporation that owns eleven other television stations, two radio stations, and two newspapers.
WSJV now transmits with an effective radiated power of 5,000,000 watts, the most powerful station in the South Bend-Elkhart market, and we broadcast to over 300,000 households weekly. WSJV still transmits on channel 28, but became a FOX affiliate effective October 1995.
We believe that television stations have a responsibility to serve in the public interest. WSJV meets that challenge by maintaining a very active role in the community. While annually donating hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of airtime and production for public service causes, we strongly encourage participation by our employees in civic groups and non-profit organizations like the United Way.

WHME TV- 46 is part of the vision that the late Dr. Lester Sumrall received from God to own and operate television and radio stations so that Christian voices could not be silenced. It was revealed to him that there would come a time when Christian programmers would not be able to purchase airtime. Dr. Sumrall knew electronic media to be a powerful tool for evangelism and it was his vision that God`s Word be available for all to hear.
Everyday thousands of viewers in northern Indiana and southern Michigan tune to WHME TV- 46 for the best known and most watched family, ministry, and sports programming on the air anywhere.
LeSEA Broadcasting purchased WHME TV 46 in 1977. Since that time WHME TV 46 has been a 24hr full power Christian family television station. LeSEA Broadcasting is dedicated to serving the Michiana community with great ministry and entertaining programs for the whole family to enjoy.
WHME TV- 46 looks forward to making the digital transition with the Michiana community a seamless operation by still offering the same quality of programming.

Our story begins 50 years ago, when a young priest running a world-renowned all-male university, decided Notre Dame would get into commercial television.
Some questioned 50 years ago why a prestigious Catholic university would want to get into the television business but Father Theodore Hesburgh knew then that this was going to be a very popular media and that it was the next step beyond radio and newspapers. He decided the University of Notre Dame could use a TV station to teach, and that meant the university owning its own station.
Fifty years ago, Father Hesburgh said, “Television will have a tremendous impact in the years and the centuries to come on the whole culture and educational values of our country. And we want to be part of that story.”

We will provide the best news, entertainment and marketing opportunities, by listening and responding to the ever-changing needs of our community, our customers and our co-workers.
WBND originally signed on the air as W58BT, channel 58, in 1990. During its first five years, the station aired regular Fox programming until 1995, when it picked up the ABC affiliation from WSJV, who dropped the network for W58BT`s Fox affiliation. They also changed their call letters to WBND that same year. During the 1990s, the station picked up a secondary affiliation with UPN. In 2002 they switched channels to 57 due to WSJV occupying the channel 58 frequency for its DTV signal, and in 2003 they lost their secondary UPN affiliation to WSBT`s UPN Michiana (now SBT2) digital subchannel.
In January 2008 the station began running an 11 minute long, 11pm newscast nightly. The newscast is produced and anchored by staff at WDJT-TV in Milwaukee. Like WDJT, ABC-57`s newscast puts emphasis on providing an early weather forecast. WBND is the third Weigel station to carry a newscast produced by WDJT, the others being their sister stations WMLW-CA and WYTU-LP. Local video is shot by photographers in South Bend and then transmitted to WDJT via satellite.
In early August 2008, Weigel Broadcasting agreed to sell all three of its South Bend stations, including WBND, to Schurz Communications, the longtime owner of the local CBS affiliate WSBT-TV, for undisclosed terms. If this sale is approved by the Federal Communications Commission, WBND`s current newscast could be replaced by simulcasts of WSBT-TV`s newscasts since the station`s operations would move into WSBT`s new facility in Mishawaka (which opened in November 2008).
