WJKP-LD (channel 39) is a low-power television station licensed to Corning, New York, United States, serving the Elmira area as an affiliate of MyNetworkTV. It is owned by Coastal Television Broadcasting Company LLC alongside Fox affiliate WYDC (channel 48). The two stations share studios on East Market Street in Downtown Corning; WJKP-LD's transmitter is located on Higman Hill.

In addition to its own low-power digital signal, WJKP-LD also receives full-market over-the-air coverage on WYDC's second digital subchannel. This airs on channel 48.2 from the same Higman Hill transmitter.

Coastal acquired WYDC and WJKP-LD from Waypoint Media on January 4, 2022, as part of a larger transaction that saw nine stations be sold to Coastal for $36.9 million.[2]
