KEFB, virtual and UHF digital channel 34, was a TBN-affiliated television station serving Des Moines, Iowa, United States that was licensed to Ames. The station was owned by Family Educational Broadcasting. KEFB's transmitter was located southwest of Ames. In addition to TBN programming, the station also served the community as an independent educational station.


The station was originally granted a construction permit on July 12, 1996, as provisional station 960712KL. The station would not be officially granted a full license until 2005, when they were granted the call letters KEFB.


On September 20, 2016, Family Educational Broadcasting announced it was permanently discontinuing all operations of KEFB and returning the station's license to the FCC.[1] KEFB's license was formally canceled and its callsign deleted on October 5, 2016.[2] TBN programming remains available in the Des Moines–Ames area via the network's national feed on Mediacom channel 92.[3][4]

The station's digital signal was multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[5]

34.2 Hillsong Channel

Analog-to-digital conversion

KEFB shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 34, on June 12, 2009, and "flash-cut" its digital signal into operation on UHF channel 34.[6] Because it was granted an original construction permit after the FCC finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997,[7] the station did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station.
