KUOK-CA, VHF analog channel 11, was a low-power television station located in Norman, Oklahoma, United States. The station, at the time of its shutdown in 2008, was owned by Equity Broadcasting.


The station first signed on the air in 1997 as KDSA-LP, carrying programming from The Worship Network, which had already broadcast on KMNZ (channel 62, now KOPX-TV) before and after that station became the market's Pax TV (now Ion Television) owned-and-operated station. In 2000, KDSA affiliated with religious broadcaster Daystar. After the affiliation switch to Univision was announced, Daystar programming was moved to upstart O&O station KOCM (channel 46) in December 2003. In the summer of 2004, the station requested to the Federal Communications Commission to have its call letters changed to KUOK-CA, which was made official that fall.

The station became a Univision affiliate on May 8, 2004, as part of a six-station bi-state network then known as "Univision Arkansas-Oklahoma" which also included KUOK (channel 36, to which KUOK-CA served as a translator) and the three other low-power stations that also Equity acquired to become its translators (K69EK – channel 69, later KWDW-LP, KUOK-LP and now KOCY-LP on channel 48; KCHM-LP – channel 36, now KUOK-CD; and Sulphur-based KOKT-LP – channel 20), originally relayed Univision programming across Oklahoma via a direct simulcast from then-sister station KLRA-LP (now KKYK-CD) in Little Rock, Arkansas. In March 2005, KUOK – though still programmed via satellite from Equity's headquarters in Little Rock – discontinued the KLRA-LP simulcast, with it and its translators began carrying advertising for businesses within the Oklahoma City market and separate station promotions.

KUOK-CA broke off from the Univision simulcast on May 30, 2007, when the station switched to LAT TV as part of a new affiliation deal between the network and Equity. [1] LAT TV ceased operations in 2008, and KUOK went silent afterward. On June 18, 2010, the FCC canceled KUOK-CA's license.[1]
