KOHA-LD is a low-power digital television station in Omaha, Nebraska. The station was formerly owned by Cornhusker Television, LLC and rebroadcast the Home Shopping Network on channel 65 before going dark in 2006. In 2007, the station returned to the air for a short period on channel 48, with an analog signal displaying a test pattern with the call sign and channel number. After a few months, the station again went dark.

In May 2009, the sale of the station to Word of God Fellowship, which runs the Daystar, was announced. The sale was completed on October 9, 2009.

A construction permit for digital broadcasting as KOHA-LD, digital channel 47, was allowed to expire on July 12, 2010. During this time, the analog signal also remained off the air. In September 2011, Word of God Fellowship filed a new application with the FCC to flash-cut to digital broadcasting on channel 48. This application was approved on October 6, 2011.[1] KOHA-LP returned to the air, transmitting Daystar programming over an analog signal, in November 2011. On July 9, 2012, KOHA-LP began broadcasting a digital signal.[2]

On August 2, 2012, the station changed its call sign to KOHA-LD.
