However, due to various delays in obtaining the location of the studio and the transmitter, the wait for the final registration of the station was more than five years. The early format of the WXNE-TV program was aimed at a family audience consisting of senior syndicated reruns and a decent number of religious programs, including CBN's flagship show The 700 Club, hosted by department founder Pat Robertson. Religious programs were held about six hours a day during the week and during the day on Sundays.
