KNLA-CD, (digital channel 50, virtual channel 20) is a Class A television station in Los Angeles, California. Its city of license is Los Angeles, California. The station is owned by NRJ TV LLC. Transmitting from Mount Wilson, this station broadcasts Home Shopping Network programming.

History[edit]

The low power station started its life as KNLA-LP on channel 27, then eventually moved to physical channel 50, mapping to virtual channel 20, to make room for KHTV-CD in Los Angeles, California, until 2012.

The station started out broadcasting in Asian languages, similar to what KSCI and KXLA currently offer. Then KNLA changed its focus to target Los Angeles area residents of Central American heritage. (It is unknown when this change took place.) Most of these immigrants moved from El Salvador and Guatemala. This channel was home to broadcaster ZionTV during its time of broadcasting in Spanish. KNLA also produced its own live, local newscast at 7:00 PM on weeknights, prior to affiliating with HSN.
