KMSG-LD, channel 39, is an Azteca America-affiliated, low-power television station for the Fresno area. KMSG provides programming for the Hispanic community. Some of its most popular programming includes novellas, sports events such as First Division Mexican League Soccer, news, talk, comedy, reality, and women's magazines. KMSG switched to channel 39 from channel 55 in the Fresno area. The station broadcasts Euro News en espanol programming on subchannel 39.3 and The Country Network programming on subchannel 39.5.

KMSG is rebroadcast on KVVG-LD channel 54.1 in Visalia. KVVG-LD started out as KVVG-LP, an affiliate of Almavision for the Visalia area in early 2005. Formerly on channel 31, it later moved to channel 54. KVVG-LP changed to Tvida Vision in mid-2005. As of 2011, the station converted to a digital signal, as KVVG-LD.

The KVVG calls were originally used on a DuMont affiliate on channel 27 in Tulare in the 1950s.

Until mid-2006, KMSG's programming was also seen on KPMC-LP (now KZKC-LP) channel 42 in Bakersfield, which was sold to McGraw-Hill, becoming a standalone Azteca America affiliate.
