KDMI is a television station that broadcasts out of Des Moines, Iowa on channel 19. KDMI is owned by Tri-State Christian Television. Mediacom carries KDMI on Channel 20 in Des Moines.

History[edit]

KDMI signed on August 28, 2006 as an America One affiliate.[1] MyNetworkTV programming was added upon its launch on September 5. As MyNetworkTV's primetime lineup only aired six days a week for two hours, America One programming was retained in all other timeslots. By the fall of 2007 KDMI began carrying some first-run syndicated programs, including Family Feud and TMZ on TV.

In 2009, America One was dropped in favor of This TV; the station initially discontinued the MyNetworkTV affiliation following its conversion to a programming service (one program from the service, WWE SmackDown, then aired on KCWI until September 11, 2010 when the program moved to cable channel Syfy later that October). Outside of some syndicated programming, KDMI's schedule was then filled solely by This TV; however, as of October 3, 2011, KDMI re-affiliated with MyNetworkTV, although the station aired the service's programming 11 p.m.-1 a.m. (some nights 11:30 p.m.-1:30 a.m., depending on the length of one of This TV's second primetime movie broadcasts). KDMI dropped MyNetworkTV once again after September 27, 2014; the MyNetworkTV affiliation was later moved to a subchannel of KCCI on December 1, 2014.

The KDMI call letters were previously used for two different radio stations in Des Moines. From 1960 to 1994 they were used at 97.3 FM, a Christian radio station owned by Buddy Tucker. After 97.3 became KHKI, the KDMI call letters were moved to 1460 AM before that station became KXNO at the beginning of 2001.[2]

On January 6, 2016, Pappas Telecasting filed to sell KDMI to Tennessee non-profit Dove Broadcasting, a subsidiary of Tri-State Christian Television, for $1 million.[3][4] Although TCT taking control of the programming from Pappas on March 14, the sale was formally consummated on April 27.[5] Prior to the sale's closing, it was one of the few television stations in the country to carry This TV network affiliation on its primary channel.
