W43CE-D is a low-power television station in St. Petersburg, Florida, broadcasting locally on channel 43. The station is owned by Mako Communications and leased to Sonlife Broadcasting Network (SBN), a Christian television network owned by Jimmy Swaggart Ministries.[1]

From June 2007 to May 2008, this station affiliated with LAT TV, a Spanish-language network. Since that network folded and up until its affiliation with SBN, it is unknown what programming that station offered.

The station converted to digital in October 2011, flash cutting on channel 43. The station has an application to move to channel 16, as well as a Construction Permit to move to digital channel 22; both of these are on frequencies vacated by WUSF-TV and WCLF, respectively.

In June 2013, W43CE-D was sold to Landover 5 LLC as part of a larger deal involving 51 other low-power television stations.[2]
