KDCG-CD, Channel 22 in Opelousas, Louisiana, is a Class-A television station affiliated with the Retro Television Network. It was previously affiliated with the America One network, along with programming from the The Sportsman Channel, FamilyNet, America's Voice, and the Pandamerica Shopping Network. KDCG served as Lafayette's Pax affiliate from the network's start in 1998, but dropped the network when the Lafayette cable system chose to add Pax's national feed to its lineup instead of the local station due to signal reception issues.

On November 1, 2007, KDCG joined the Retro Television Network and changed branding to "RTN KDCG". At this time, programming from the Sportsman Channel was reduced to a limited basis, whenever the signal from RTN is off the air, plus some scheduled programming weekdays and Sunday mornings. The branding was changed again to "RTV 22.1" upon RTN's own rebranding to RTV and KDCG's flash-cut to digital broadcasts.

On August 15, 2006, after a long and drawn-out negotiation process, KDCG has been be added to Cox Communications Acadiana cable system on cable channel 9 (22 in Franklin), reaching viewers in Abbeville, Crowley, Franklin, Lafayette, New Iberia, and St. Martinville. [1] [2]

In addition, KDCG streams its programming on the Internet.

On March 30, 2012 Delta Media purchased KDCG from Acadiana Cable Advertising and added the channel to its KLWB-TV linup as 50.2. On August 1, 2012 KDCG changed its affiliation from RTV to Antenna TV on 22.1. KLWB 50.2 is now Antenna TV and 50.3 is Soul of the South.
