KHLM-LD, virtual channel 12 (VHF digital channel 10), is a low-powered CTN owned-and-operated television station licensed to Houston, Texas, United States. The station is owned by the Clearwater, Florida-based Christian Television Network. KHLM-LD's transmitter is located near Missouri City, in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County.

History[edit]

Prior to 2020, KHLM-LD was the American flagship of the Monterrey, Nuevo León-based network Multimedios, and coordinated many of that network's talent appearances around the Houston area and southern Texas. Its local programming was also carried over the American feed of the network for cable and satellite providers, replacing Monterrey only-specific content.

The station temporarily ceased over-the-air broadcasting as of December 1, 2018 in preparation for the broadcast band repack in 2019 and a re-sort from UHF channel 43 onto VHF channel 10. KHLM-LD's main channel carrying Multimedios Houston is still available as a basic offering on most of the area's cable providers.

On June 4, 2021, it was announced that Lotus Communications would sell KHLM-LD from Multimedios to the Christian Television Network for $1.1 million.[1] The sale was completed on August 18.[2]
