WAZT-CA is a religious television station in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, licensed to Woodstock, Virginia. It is officially considered to be in the Washington, DC television market. The station's primary analog broadcast signal operates on VHF channel 10 and their digital signal will operate on VHF channel 8.[1] The station offers some TBN and Cornerstone programming, but it generally does not show them in-pattern with those networks, and it also broadcasts some secular syndicated programming and classic television shows. WAZT once broadcast a local newscast at 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (entitled News 10), but this was discontinued on December 26th, 2005. In January 2006, WAZT began airing CBN's "NewsWatch" program with local news and weather in "audio form" during an extended commercial breaking under the name "Valley News Briefs".

Logo used until October 2008.

The station has operated since October 1985, when it was put on the air by Ruarch Associates, LLC (its original calls were W10AZ, with the WAZT calls, introduced in 1994, likely being derived from it), and once had a radio sister station, WAZR 93.7 (that station is now owned by Clear Channel Communications with a contemporary format).[2] Ruarch sold WAZT to JLA Media & Publications in 2006.


As WAZT operates at a low-power, it must use relays to expand its signal throughout the rest of Shenandoah Valley. The station refers to this network of signals as the AZTV Network. Interestingly, these relays also had "AZ" in their translator calls, though the AZ in their current callsigns likely comes from WAZT. The relays changed their callsigns in the early 2000s.

Most of these stations are also in the Washington market, although the Harrisonburg and Staunton-Waynesboro relays are in the Harrisonburg market.

In 2009, WAZT began relaying on Core Group International, Inc. owned W14CY in Charlottesville. It is unknown if WAZT will buy the translator or not.
