Our Story


KWHB TV 47 is part of the vision that the late Dr. Lester Sumrall received from God to own and operate television and radio stations so that Christian voices could not be silenced. It was revealed to him that there would come a time when Christian programmers would not be able to purchase airtime. Today many stations still refuse to sell time, even on Sunday, to religious broadcasters. Dr. Sumrall knew electronic media to be a powerful tool for evangelism and it was his vision that God's Word be available for all to hear.

Everyday thousands of viewers in Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma tune to KWHB TV 47 for the best known and most watched family, ministry, and sports programming on the air anywhere.

LeSEA Broadcasting purchased KWHB TV 47 in 1986. Since that time KWHB TV 47 is the only 24hr full time Christian family television station in Tulsa. LeSEA Broadcasting is dedicated to serving the Christian community with great ministry and entertaining programs for the whole family to enjoy.

Today TV 47 is carried on 82 cable stations throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas while reaching over 649 thousand households. No other station in Green Country is on that many cable outlets or can reach as many people.
