KCPN-LP is a My Network TV affiliate in Amarillo, Texas. KCPN-LP originally was the UPN affiliate in the Texas Panhandle viewing area but lost its affiliation to KFDA-TV in 2002. The station was acquired by Mission Broadcasting after they bought KCIT and KCPN-LP from Wicks Broadcast Group in 1999. This station operates shared services agreements with Nexstar Broadcasting's station, KAMR-TV.

Syndicated programming on the station includes Judge Faith, The Real, Family Guy, Hot in Cleveland, and Dish Nation.

KCPN-LP has carried the branding My Amarillo TV since late August, 2006.

Due to its low-powered status, KCPN-LP is not required to air a digital signal of its own and instead continues to operate its low-powered analog signal (and is thus continuing to opt out of the optional maneuver of upgrading to a low-powered digital signal); however, in addition to its low-powered analog signal, KCPN-LP also receives full-market over-the-air digital coverage (although, only in standard definition), via the second digital subchannel of KAMR-TV's (digital subchannel 4.2 for those with digital converters). This airs on UHF channel 19.4 from the same Dumas Drive (U.S. 87 and U.S. 287) transmitter in unincorporated Potter County.
