KAHC-LD, virtual channel 43 (UHF digital channel 30), is a low-powered ShopHQ-affiliated television station licensed to Sacramento, California, United States. The station is owned by HC2 Holdings. Operator and half-owner DTV America Corporation, which also operates Stockton-licensed KFKK-LD, retains the station license.

History[]

KAHC-LD began operations in 1988 as K69FB, on analog channel 69, and was originally affiliated with the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). On June 17, 2004, its call letters changed to K45HC and switched to analog channel 45. In 2015, K45HC disaffiliated with TBN after 27 years and the station went silent for about a year. In 2016, it went on the air again with new call letters as KAHC-LP, later becoming its current call letters of KAHC-LD, after the station switched from analog to digital, remaining on its analog-era channel number 45. However, its virtual channel number was switched to channel 43 as sister station KFTY-LD in Middletown, California has its virtual channel number as 45 and its broadcasting radius overlapped that of KAHC. Secondly, KAHC wasn’t assigned KFTY's digital channel number of 2 as its virtual channel number due to a broadcasting radius overlap of Fox owned-and-operated station KTVU in Oakland, operating on virtual channel 2. When KAHC returned to the air in 2016, it was briefly affiliated with Laff, before switching affiliations to American Sports Network, which later became Stadium. When KMAX-TV, channel 31, affiliated with Stadium on subchannel 31.4 in 2018, KAHC retained the Stadium affiliation for a time as both stations became dual affiliates. However, in 2019, KAHC disaffiliated from Stadium and switched to infomercials. In early 2020, KAHC became a CBN News affiliate, returning religious programming to the channel since its disaffiliation with TBN. The affiliation was dropped later that year, reverting to infomercials. In early 2021, KAHC affiliated with shopping network ShopHQ.
