KEJB was a television station in El Dorado, Arkansas, broadcasting locally on channel 43 as an affiliate of MyNetworkTV. Founded in 2003, the station was owned by KM Communications. The station's transmitter was located near Bolding on the same tower as KTVE.

Because it was granted an original construction permit after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997 [2], the station did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station. Instead, on or before June 12, 2009, which is the end of the digital TV conversion period for full-service stations, KEJB was required to turn off its analog signal and turn on its digital signal (called a "flash-cut"). While a digital signal did go on the air (though it shut down on June 4, 2010 due to equipment failure[1]), the station never filed for either a license to cover or an extension of the construction permit, and it was deleted by the FCC on December 22, 2010.[2]
