KJNP-TV Channel 4 is a full-service religious television station in North Pole, Alaska. Signing on on December 7, 1981 and becoming a TBN affiliate in 1990 (and its only full-power affiliate in Alaska), KJNP-TV became the fourth television station in the Fairbanks area after KUAC. Originally broadcasting 16 hours a day, the schedule expanded to 24 hours a day in 2003, following the installation of a new transmitter.

KJNP-TV and KJNP AM/FM (which launched in 1967) were founded by Don and Gen Nelson. In addition to TBN and other programs, KJNP-TV also broadcasts "Closing Comments", one of the longest-running public affairs programs on local television.

KJNP is one of two television stations in the US broadcasting from places called the "North Pole." The other is WPTZ in North Pole, New York, an NBC affiliate serving the region around Plattsburgh, New York and Burlington, Vermont.
