KWHS-LD, virtual and UHF digital channel 51, is a low-powered CTN owned-and-operated television station licensed to Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States. The station is owned by the Christian Television Network. KWHS' transmitter is located atop Cheyenne Mountain.


The station, which signed on the air in 1992 and maintains a studio in Colorado Springs, was previously a semi-satellite of KWHD in Denver, owned by LeSEA Broadcasting (now Family Broadcasting Corporation). Both outlets shared the same programming with some exceptions. (KWHD is now KETD, carrying Estrella TV; the station does still operate a subchannel carrying a LeSEA-produced schedule that remains identical to that of KWHS.)

In June 2014, it was announced LeSEA had inked an affiliation deal with Cozi TV, KWHS was one of the stations that began carrying the channel.[3] On July 1, 2017, Light TV replaced Cozi TV on KWHS' subchannel.[4][circular reference]

On February 5, 2018, it was announced that LeSEA would sell KWHS, along with Class A station KEEN-CD in Las Vegas and full-power station WHNO in New Orleans, to Clearwater, Florida-based Christian Television Network for $5.7 million.[1] The sale was completed on April 23, 2018.[2]
