KJJM-LD is a low-power digital television station in the Dallas, Texas area, broadcasting locally on channel 34.

The station was first established as K46EV on channel 46 as a FamilyNet affiliate, then on February 18, 2000 the call letters changed to KJJM. In 2005, the station moved its broadcasts to channel 34 to make way for KTAQ's channel 46 digital signal, and switched affiliates to LAT TV in 2006.

For several weeks after LAT TV folded on May 20, 2008, KJJM was running a test pattern without FCC-required station IDs, putting the owners in danger of fines and other penalties. In September 2008 the station began broadcasting infomercials until the Universal Access Network was established in November 2008.

Former Access 34 ident.

From November 2008 until June 2011, KJJM broadcast Universal Access Network programming, including the daily Access Live hosted by Pastor Lee Sherrell and produced at the KJJM studios. Weekend programming includes local Dallas ministry programs produced live at KJJM. The schedule also included syndicated programs, a handful of old movies, cartoons, classic TV shows including Bonanza, and programs from other sources.

In June 2011, Universal Access Network moved to full-power station KTAQ on subchannel 47.2.

In June 2013, KJJM-LD was sold to Landover 5 LLC as part of a larger deal involving 51 other low-power television stations.[1]

KJJM is not currently available on cable systems in the immediate Dallas/Mesquite area.
