WBIF is a full service television station in Marianna, Florida, broadcasting on local digital UHF channel 51 and virtual channel 51 to the Panama City, Florida area. Founded in 1998, it is owned and operated by the Daystar Television Network, an American evangelical Christian television religious broadcasting network headquartered near Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in Bedford, Texas. It is broadcast world-wide via satellite. It was founded in 1993, when Marcus Lamb and his Word of God Fellowship ministry purchased a formerly defunct UHF station in Dallas called KMPX, and started broadcasting Christian programming. By 1997, Daystar was a network of two stations, one in Colorado and one in Texas. By 2011, the network had grown to cover 200 countries. In 2010, Daystar became the first full time Christian network to build a TV station in Israel.
