KNJO-LP was a fully automated low-power television station serving Holbrook, Arizona, as an America One affiliate. It provided over-the-air service in analog on VHF channel 6 from its transmitter about 5 miles (8 km) south-southwest of downtown Holbrook and had a construction permit to build a digital television station on UHF channel 15. KNJO-LP was owned by KM Communications of Skokie, Illinois.

History[edit]

An original construction permit for a low-power television station on channel 6 was granted to KM Communications on October 17, 2002.[1] The original callsign was K06NL, but KM Communications soon changed it to KNJO-LP for Navajo County, of which Holbrook is the county seat.[2] The station was licensed on October 28, 2005 as Holbrook's second local over-the-air television station.[3]

KNJO went off the air on April 27, 2012 due to vandalism that damaged its equipment, and economic factors that prevented repairs;[4] it never returned to the air, and the license was canceled on June 19, 2013.[5]

Digital television[edit]

In June 2006, the FCC opened a window for low-power television stations to file short-form applications for digital companion channels for the DTV transition. km Communications applied for UHF channel 15 for KNJO-LD on June 30, 2006[6] and on January 12, 2007, the FCC granted a construction permit to build the station, to expire in three years.[7]
