KXAP-LD, virtual and UHF digital channel 51, is an Estrella TV-affiliated television station located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States. The station is locally owned by the Teletul Media Group. KXAP maintains studio facilities located on East 2nd Street and Peoria Avenue (just off of Interstate 244) in downtown Tulsa, and its transmitter is located between South 103rd Avenue and the Mingo Valley Expressway/U.S. 169 in southeast Tulsa. On cable, the station is available on Cox Communications digital channel 444.

History[edit]

The original application for the UHF channel 51 license was filed to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on September 15, 1998 under the callsign K51FR;[1] the FCC granted an application on July 5, 2000 to have the station's callsign changed to KOPE-LP.

On July 8, 2008, the station launched as a Spanish-language independent station under the callsign KXAP-LP; the station signed on with the intent to run locally-produced programs for half of its daily schedule. The station also began carrying two local newscasts each weekday, an hour-long morning news program Buenos Dias Oklahoma and an hour-long newscast each weeknight at 6 p.m.[2] The station was originally scheduled to debut on July 4, 2008, but its sign-on was delayed due to technical issues.[3]

On July 19, 2010, KXAP-LD became an affiliate of Liberman Broadcasting's Spanish-language broadcast network Estrella TV.[4]
