KKHJ-LP, UHF analog channel 30, is a low-power independent television station serving the U.S. territory of American Samoa that is licensed to Pago Pago. The station is owned by South Seas Broadcasting, Inc.
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 World War II 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.
