KTAJ-TV, virtual channel 16 (UHF digital channel 21), is a TBN owned-and-operated television station licensed to St. Joseph, Missouri, United States and also serving the Kansas City metropolitan area. The station is owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network. KTAJ-TV's studios are located in the Tiffany Springs area of Kansas City, Missouri, and its transmitter is located at the intersection of East 23rd Street and Topping Avenue in the city's Blue Valley section.

Although the station mainly serves the Kansas City area, it is officially assigned by Nielsen to the St. Joseph Designated Market Area (DMA) due to its city of license residing in the St. Joseph market.[2] The station has been available on cable television providers in both the St. Joseph and Kansas City markets since its sign-on, although Charter Spectrum (in the immediate Kansas City area),[3] Comcast Xfinity,[4][5] Consolidated Communications,[6] AT&T U-verse[7] and Google Fiber[8] do not carry KTAJ but do carry TBN's national feed.


The station first signed on the air in October 1986, and was built and signed on by the Trinity Broadcasting Network. KTAJ is the only full-powered TBN station in the state of Missouri, and was one of only two stations licensed to St. Joseph—alongside ABC affiliate KQTV (channel 2)—until the June 2012 sign-on of Fox affiliate KNPN-LD (channel 26)[9] – although KTAJ and KQTV remain the only full-power television stations licensed to the city (two other stations owned by KNPN parent News-Press & Gazette Company have signed on since that point – low-powered KBJO-LD (now KNPG-LD; channel 21) and KNPG-LD (now KCJO-LD; channel 30)).

As KTAJ-TV's virtual digital channel is mapped as "16" (its former analog channel assignment) through PSIP, NBC affiliate KNPG-LD instead maps its PSIP channel as virtual channel 21[10] to avoid co-channel mapping issues with KTAJ.

Digital television

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming
16.1 720p 16:9 TBN Main TBN programming
16.2 Hilsong Hillsong Channel
16.3 480i 4:3 COMBO JUCE TV/Smile
16.4 Enlace Enlace
16.5 SALSA TBN Salsa

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.

KTAJ-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 16, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 21.[11] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 16.

Local programming

Locally produced programs that are taped in the station's St. Joseph studios include local versions of TBN's flagship program Praise the Lord and Joy in Our Town, a public affairs program format that is produced by TBN partner stations on a local basis.
