KJNK-LD is a low-power translator television station in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It broadcasts locally on digital channel 25 at 15 kilowatts from an antenna located atop the IDS Center at 80 South 8th Street in downtown Minneapolis. This station uses MPEG-2 audio rather than the ATSC standard, AC3 audio. Some set-top boxes only received AC3 audio, so individuals with this type of set-top box received K25IA without sound, although this problem was reportedly fixed in the mid-summer of 2010.
Following its acquisition from Regal Media, K25IA-D continued to carry all five TBN services. This ended in September 2013, when all TBN services were dropped in favor of Informed TV, a series of video lectures from Alan Roebke, a former Congressional candidate from Minnesota's 7th Congressional District. Informed TV's programming is also carried on a subchannel of K21GN-D, a Selective TV translator in Alexandria, where the organization's headquarters are located. This ended in mid-November 2013, when K25IA-D resumed carriage of TBN and its subchannels.
On June 9, 2014, the station changed its call sign to the current KJNK-LD.
