KNNN-LP (known as Hella 87.7) is an indie and alternative rock radio station and low-power television station based in Redding, California, broadcasting locally in analog TV on VHF channel 6. Founded September 16, 2003 by Venture Technologies Group, LLC, it is now owned by Hella Meada Group LLC of Redding. The station currently operates and markets itself as a radio station using the audio portion of NTSC channel 6 (87.75 MHz) to broadcast audio (most FM radio receivers can receive this frequency at 87.7 on the low end of the FM dial).

The radio station, KNNN-FM 87.7 (owned by Mapleton Communications), began operations in 2010 as a "Hank FM" country music station after the original KNNN station (located at 99.3 FM at the time) changed formats to news/talk and its call letters to KQMS-FM (since has become KWLZ-FM). Hella Meada Group took over station operations on January 1, 2017, and currently airs an indie and alternative format and goes by the name "Hella 87.7". The station relocated from the former Redding Radio facility on Alta Mesa Drive to the KIXE-TV building on North Market Street. [1]

KNNN-LP has a construction permit to flash-cut its signal to digital TV on channel 6 at 300 watts (formerly to channel 42 at 11 kW). By doing so, its purpose as a radio station would be defeated.
