WCFC-CA (Channel 51) is the Rockford, Illinois-based owned and operated television station of the Total Living Network, a religious broadcaster based in Chicago, Illinois.


This station started out in 1986 as a low-power satellite station of Chicago's WCFC (Channel 38, now WCPX). However, when WCPX was sold to Paxson Communications in 1998, Rockford's Channel 51 became more of a full-fledged station of its own. It was later on that WCFC-CA opened its own studio facility in Rockford. In January 2001, WCFC-CA applied for and was granted a Class A broadcast license. That, in essence, upgraded the broadcasting signal, more than tripling its power.

WCFC and TLN carry selected programs from fellow religious broadcaster, the Trinity Broadcasting Network, and family-based secular programs such as "Little House on the Prairie".
