KSFV-CA channel 6 is a Class A television station in the San Fernando Valley, owned by Venture Technologies Group, LLC, and leased to Hombre Nuevo, a Catholic organization. Transmitting from the Mt. Harvard radio site in San Gabriel, California, KSFV is a Spanish-religious channel that operates as a radio station, branded as Guadalupe Radio, because audio from TV channel 6 can be heard on 87.75 MHz FM. The station is exempt from the planned June 12, 2009 shutdown of analog television in the U.S. due to its low-power status but has applied to start transmitting on channel 6 in digital soon.
The low-power station originally operated on channel 26, but moved to channel 6 to make room for KVCR-DT in San Bernardino, which operates its digital signal on channel 26. KSFV-CA also broadcast programming targeted towards Central American immigrants during this time, which debuted on April 30, 2001.
On March 9, 2009, Venture Technologies announced that it had signed a leasing agreement with Mega Media Group to launch a Dance format on KSFV, thus ending the Spanish Religious format on the signal. Programming was to have begun on June 1, 2009, and it would have been patterned after Mega Media's New York City outlet WNYZ-LP and likewise, carry the "Pulse 87" brand. However, Venture Technologies has notified Radio World that it would not take Mega Media's offer and Mega Media ceased operations in October 2009.
