K42DJ is a low-power television station in Las Cruces, New Mexico, broadcasting locally in analog on UHF channel 42 as an affiliate of the Azteca network. Founded October 27, 1994, the station is owned by Hubbard Broadcasting and operated by KVIA-TV, a station owned by the News-Press & Gazette Company. The station is seen in the El Paso market on DirecTV channel 42 and Time Warner Cable channel 9 -- not to be confused with KTSM-TV, which broadcasts on channel 9 terrestrially, but is carried on Time Warner channel 10, due to cable signal ingress issues.

K42DJ was first licensed as such in 1994; in September 2006, it adopted the callsign KAEP-LP (meaning Azteca América El Paso), following affiliating with the then-new Azteca America network. The station would revert to its K42DJ callsign on May 19, 2014, for reasons unknown.

The station currently has an application and a construction permit with the FCC to flash cut its channel 42 signal to digital.

El Paso is one of four markets to receive both Azteca in the United States and the original Mexican TV Azteca channels (Rio Grande Delta, San Diego and Laredo are the others). Much of K42DJ's programming from Azteca can also be seen on XHCJE-TV Channel 11 (Azteca 13) or XHCJH-TV Channel 20 (Azteca 7), sometimes simultaneously.
