Public license information:Profile

KYCW-LD, virtual channel 25 (UHF digital channel 19), is a CW-affiliated television station licensed to Branson, Missouri, United States. Owned by Gray Television, it is a sister station to Springfield-licensed NBC affiliate KYTV (channel 3) and ABC affiliate KSPR-LD (channel 33). The three stations share studios on West Sunshine Street in Springfield; KYCW-LD's transmitter is located on Switchgrass Road, north of Fordland.

KYCW-LD's low-powered digital broadcasting radius does not reach the entire market. Therefore, KYCW-LD is simulcast in standard definition on KYTV's third digital subchannel (UHF channel 44.5, mapped to virtual channel 33.2 via PSIP) from a transmitter located in Fordland. KYCW-LD is also simulcast on the second digital subchannel of low-power stations KSPR-LD and K17DL-D. KYCW-LD uses the same transmitter and tower facilities as the defunct KGHZ (formerly KSPR until a February 2017 channel shuffle), which had their license turned into the FCC on May 31, 2017 as part of the FCC's 2016 spectrum auction, albeit at a lower power to meet KYCW-LD's license requirements.
