Based near Charlotte, started by Jim Bakker and his then-wife Tammy
Faye after leaving CBN. The Bakkers' show, The PTL Club, was a more Dixie-fried clone of Pat Robertson's The 700 Club. Grew into a satellite network (now known as INSP) and a theme-park, Heritage USA. Then Jim had an affair with the pre-silicone Jessica Hahn, and PTL's financial misdeeds came out; Jerry Falwell inherited the empire and presided over its burial.
