KEQI-LP, virtual and UHF digital channel 22, is a low-powered Fox-affiliated television station serving the U.S. territory of Guam that is licensed to Dededo. Owned by Sorensen Media Group, it is a sister station to ABC affiliate KTGM (channel 14). The two stations share studios on 111 Chalan Santo Papa in Hagåtña (Agana); KEQI-LP's transmitter is located in the heights of Barigåda (Barrigada).

KEQI-LP's signal can be seen over the air in Hagåtña (Agana), Tamuneng (Tamuning), and Dededo. Its programming is also available island-wide on KTGM's second digital subchannel, on cable channel 6 on MCV Broadband and GTA's GUdTV systems in Guam, and on cable channel 10 on MCV Broadband in the Northern Mariana Islands.

Programming[edit]

KEQI-LP signed on the air on in 2004, and has been owned by Sorensen Media Group since its inception. It broadcast as an independent station until picking up the Fox network affiliation on September 1, 2005. Prior to this, Fox had only been carried as a secondary affiliation, first on NBC affiliate KUAM-TV, then on KTGM (which Sorensen acquired in November 2005) from 1990 onward, until near the end of the decade, when KTGM dropped it to focus on ABC programming. After this, local cable systems carried San Francisco Bay Area affiliate KTVU before the network affiliated with KEQI.

The station airs a mix of Fox network programming and syndicated fare. It also airs the Fox primetime schedule on the same week as the continental United States, except that shows are aired on a Tuesday-through-Monday pattern rather than the Monday-through-Sunday pattern, since Guam is a day ahead of the United States. This does not apply to live sports, which mainly air live early in the morning.

KEQI's syndicated programming includes Entertainment Tonight and Inside Edition. These same programs are also repeated on KTGM.

In 2008 the station added news programming from the Philippines, using content from ABS-CBN and its sister news cable channel ANC through The Filipino Channel, throughout the day when they do not air any Fox programming.
