KHBS-DT2 and KHOG-DT2 are the CW-affiliated television stations for Northwest Arkansas. The stations are second digital subchannels of the ABC-affiliates KHBS / KHOG-TV, which are both owned by Hearst Television. Over the air, KHBS-DT2 broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on UHF channel 21.2 from KHBS's transmitter located northwest of Poteau, Oklahoma. The station is also offered on Cox cable channel 22 in Fort Smith. KHOG-DT2 broadcasts an HD digital signal on UHF channel 15.2 from KHOG's transmitter located southeast of Fayetteville. It can be seen on Cox cable channel 4 in that city as well. KHBS-DT2 and KHOG-DT2 are known on-air together as the Arkansas CW. Their parent stations have studios on Ajax Avenue in Rogers.
Both stations were launched on April 28, 2008 when KHBS and KHOG-TV decided to carry The CW on their digital signals. Previously, the network was only available from a cable-only CW affiliate operated by Cox. As part of The CW Plus operation, it was known as having the fictional callsign, "KCWA".

On August 20, 2012, KHBS/KHOG began producing a nightly half-hour prime time newscast at 9 on their CW-affiliated second digital subchannels. The broadcast is the third prime time news option in the Fayetteville-Fort Smith market, joining a weeknight-only newscast on Fox outlet KFTA that is produced by sister station KNWA-TV and a nightly KFSM-produced newscast on MyNetworkTV affiliate KXNW. As KHBS-DT2 and KHOG-DT2 receive CW network programming from The CW Plus, the newscast preempts syndicated programming normally seen in that timeslot on The CW Plus' national feed.
