KESE-LP, UHF analog channel 35, is a low-power Telemundo-affiliated television station licensed to Yuma, Arizona, United States and also serving El Centro, California. Owned by News-Press & Gazette Company, it is a sister station to El Centro-licensed Fox/ABC/CW+ affiliate KECY-TV (channel 9); NPG also operates Yuma-licensed CBS affiliate KSWT (channel 13) and Yuma-licensed NBC affiliate KYMA-DT (channel 11) through a shared services agreement (SSA) with owner Northwest Broadcasting. The four stations share studios on South 4th Avenue in downtown Yuma, with an advertising sales office on West Main Street in El Centro; KESE-LP's transmitter is located southeast of Yuma.
The station began with an original construction permit granted on October 24, 1997. The station was assigned the callsign K35EX and was owned by Estrella License Corporation. Gulf-California Broadcast Company acquired the station in October 2000, applied for a station license in November, and changed the station's callsign to KESE-LP in December. The FCC granted the station a license on February 2, 2001.

In September 2006, KESE-LP was identified as a singleton applicant for a companion digital LPTV signal on UHF channel 40 . A singleton applicant is one whose application for a construction permit has no competition from nearby applications on the same or adjacent channels. As a singleton applicant, the station is likely to be granted a construction permit. Currently, KESE-LP can be seen (in 1080i full high definition) on KECY's digital subchannel 9.4, a full power station.
