KILM, virtual channel 64, is a SonLife Broadcasting Network affiliate licensed to Barstow, California, United States, but with studios in Pasadena, California. The station is owned by Multicultural Television Broadcasting. Transmiting from Mount Wilson, this station is an affiliate of SonLife Broadcasting Network. KILM is Multicultural's only-owned television station as of 2017.
KILM originally began broadcasting in 1987 as KVVT, the only independent commercial television station in the Mojave Desert region to provide local news programs. It became KHIZ in 1992. In the mid-2000s, the station changed its format and service area to be transmitted in both the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area and the Inland Empire region. Multicultural purchased Sunbelt Television, Inc. in 2007. KHIZ eventually incorporated multicultural programming into its schedule. In 1989, the station became an ABC affiliate for communities in the Mojave Desert that did not get a good signal from ABC-owned KABC-TV. In 1992, KABC boosted its signal to the Mojave Desert, causing KHIZ to drop its ABC affiliation.
At one time, KHIZ aired a weekday morning news program, Inland Empire Live, that was produced from the facilities of WSEE-TV in Erie, Pennsylvania and distributed to KHIZ via satellite transmission.
FilmOn took over the station's operations under an LMA on September 1, 2012, at which point it became KILM. On November 25, 2013, FilmOn TV was removed and replaced with paid programming. On July 12, 2014, KILM dropped the all-paid programming lineup and replaced it with programming from the SonLife Broadcasting Network, a religious broadcasting network owned by televangelist Jimmy Swaggart.
