WOTH-LP is a low-power television station in Cincinnati, Ohio, broadcasting locally on channel 25 as an affiliate of the America One network. Along with sister station WBQC-CA, WOTH is currently owned by Elliott Block.

In addition to network programming, the station airs local entertainment programs such as New Xtreme Sounds (music), Lincoln Ware Live! (community public affairs) and "Friday Night Fu" (campy kunng fu movies hosted by Cap'n Dave and Fu Crew).

The current channel slot was the original home of WBQC. In 2005, WBQC moved to Class A channel 38 from LP channel 25, leaving WOTH at 25. Prior to the move, WOTH aired home shopping programs from America's Store[1] under the callsigns W35BA and W39CG.[2] The WOTH logo is a simplification of WBQC's old "25 TV" logo.[3]

In early March 2009 WOTH planned to add Retro Television Network to its digital subchannel 25.2[4]. It was added in April 2009 to 25.3.
