KGTF, virtual and VHF digital channel 12, is a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member television station serving the U.S. territory of Guam that is licensed to Hagåtña. The station is owned by the Guam Educational Telecommunications Corporation, an agency of the territorial government. KGTF's studios are located in Mangilao, adjacent to Guam Community College, and its transmitter is located on Mount Barrigada in Barrigada.

The station signed on the air on October 30, 1970, with only 4½ hours of programming Monday through Friday, of which they would later expand throughout its nearly 40-year history, including producing local shows and various projects.

KGTF currently operates from 6 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. Unlike most other PBS stations, KGTF offers no subchannels other than the main feed.
