K25AL is a Class A television station serving Lake Havasu City, Arizona. It broadcasts in analog on UHF channel 25 as a Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) affiliate and is locally owned by Lake Havasu Christian Television. The station's transmitter is located near downtown Lake Havasu City.

History[edit]

An original construction permit for a low-power station on channel 25 was issued on July 10, 1984 to Lake Havasu Christian Television. Given the call sign K25AL, it was licensed on October 1, 1985 and upgraded its license to Class A on September 10, 2001. On October 19, 2007, the station was granted a construction permit to flash cut to digital, good for three years.

Programming[edit]

K25AL broadcasts the entire TBN schedule. Although Class A licensees are generally required to broadcast a minimum of three hours per week of locally produced programming, there is no evidence that K25AL does so.

In the late 1980, K25AL broadcast locally produced programming in conjunction with Lake Havasu High School. K25AL broadcast a weekly student produced newscast called "Knight Life News". Segments were shot in the field, and student anchors introduced segments and performed interviews in a studio located in "I-Hall" on the LHHS campus. K25AL also owned a field production truck, mostly used to broadcast LHHS football games. Both home and away games were switched live to tape using a three camera setup. The recorded games were broadcast the following day. K25AL also occasionally broadcast LHHS basketball games and other city events such as the London Bridge Days parade. It is unknown when K25AL stopped producing local programming. The field production truck was still parked at K25AL as of November 2010.

K25AL also ran some syndicated programming in the 80's, such as fishing programs.
