FQTN 13, officially FQTN-TV channel 13, is a television station located in Quentinsburgh, Freedemia. It has been the flagship station of the Western Urban Broadcasting Company since its inception and serves as the PWN affiliate for the Quentinsburgh metropolitan area, including Mathersboro, Haroldsborough, Highfield, Sandboro, Horizon Springs, Meisler, Northcross, Caroll Hill, Franklin Hill, Tortoise Glen, Berkeley Ridge, and surrounding towns and cities.

FQTN-TV is co-owned with Century Television Network affiliate FWWV 27, Unimundo TV affiliate FQES 64, and radio stations FQTN-FM (112.5FM), FQUA-FM (94.7FM), FSFT-FM (85.3FM), and Quentinsburgh Talk Radio (720AM).

FQTN 13 is currently the most popular Progress World Network channel in the country, and is also the most popular "Freedemian Four" channel in the Quentinsburgh area, over National Television Network's FJAS 2, Freedemian Broadcasting Company's FFBC 57, and Freedemia/Tarephia Television's FKET 4.

History

The station was originally founded as a Progress National Network radio station broadcasting as FQUE-FM on February 6th, 1949. The station began broadcasting black-and-white television as FQUE on August 9th, 1954. On March 29th, 1963, the channel began broadcasting from a much stronger tower on top of PTR Tower, changing their name to FQTN. The channel began broadcasting in color on April 21, 1967.

In 1985, Progress National Network became Progress World Network after adding new international affiliates. Likewise, FQTN's branding changed and the station became Progress World Network-Quentinsburgh.

In 2004, FQTN and PWN's studios moved out of PTR Tower into the building across the street as the tower closed mostly down for renovation, while the programming continued to be broadcasted from the tower on PTR Tower.

In 2010, FQTN's studios and tower moved to One Fredrick Tower across the street, creating an even stronger broadcast that now reaches as far as Ciudad Nature, Nature; Laneston/Vandover; Trenchent and Los Lago; and Graham City (though Laneston/Vandover, Trenchent/San Grande and Graham City have their own local PWN stations as well).
