- This page is about KKHJ-LP in American Samoa, which brands itself as "KHJ-TV". For the former KHJ-TV in Los Angeles, see KCAL-TV.
The station was founded on November 4, 2003 as TBN repeater K30HO. It changed its call sign to WVUV-LP on March 21, 2005 after its acquisition by South Seas Broadcasting; however, it branded itself as "KHJ-TV". On March 11, 2008, the station changed its call sign to KKHJ-LP, reflecting its branding.
It was the first privately owned television station and, later, network affiliate, in American Samoa -- government-owned KVZK-4 and KVZK-5 carry programming from ABC and CBS, and had carried NBC before WVUV's acquisition by South Seas.
Even though the station is located on a Pacific island, it had originally taken a call sign beginning with "W". Co-owned WVUV had been established during WWII and was "grandfathered" with a W-call, and the FCC allowed channel 30 to use a "conforming" call (WVUV-LP). WVUV-LP had the distinction of being the furthest west television station with a "W" call sign in the United States and the only "W" television call sign in the Pacific.
