KTOV-LP, channel 21, was a low-power television station licensed to Corpus Christi, Texas. It is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, and is the local affiliate of MyNetwork TV.

Before becoming an affiliate of MyNetworkTV, KTOV was a UPN affiliate.

GH Broadcasting announced that it would sell KTOV to London Broadcasting Company, owner of KIII (channel 3), in March 2012.[1] The sale fell through, after which GH declared bankruptcy in early 2013, remaining as debtor-in-possession. In late 2014, the sale of the station to Corpus 18, LLC, a partnership formed by the noteholders of debt of GH and High Maintenance Broadcasting, owners of KUQI (channel 38) and a related business to GH, was finalized. On October 2, 2015, Corpus 18 agreed to sell KTOV, KUQI, and KXPX-LP (channel 14) to Sinclair Broadcast Group for $9.25 million. On September,2016 KTOV-LP signed off and programming that was seen on KTOV was moved to KUQI 38.3 and the station is now known as MyNetwork Television Corpus Christi.[2]
