KIMG-LD is a digital low-power television station in Ventura, California, broadcasting locally on channel 19. The station is owned by Ronald Ulloa, who also owns KVMD and KXLA, and is the brother of KJLA owner Walter Ulloa.

On May 30, 2007, KIMG-LP channel 23 switched affiliations to LAT TV, as part of a new deal between LAT TV and Equity Media Holdings, who owned KIMG at the time [1]. LAT TV was a Houston-based Spanish-language television network that launched in May 2006 and ceased operation two years later.

KIMG-LP switched affiliations from LAT TV to Retro Jams; it is unknown when the switch took place.

KIMG-LP signed off March 9, 2009 in the wake of Equity's bankruptcy.[1] After failing to find a buyer at a bankruptcy auction,[2] the station was sold to Ronald Ulloa on October 30, 2009.[3] The station had previously been included in Silver Point Finance's June 2 acquisition of other Equity staitons,[4] but that application was dismissed August 11, 2009.[5]

On January 24, 2011, the station's license were cancelled by the FCC.[6] However, as of November 2011, the station's license is still active, as KIMG-LD.
