KFVS 12 News
KFVS-TV is the CBS-affiliated television station for Southeastern Missouri, the Purchase area of Western Kentucky, and Southern Illinois. Licensed to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, it broadcasts a high definition digital signal on VHF channel 12 from a transmitter, northwest of Egypt Mills, in unincorporated Cape Girardeau County. Owned by Raycom Media, the station is a sister station to the low-powered CW/MeTV affiliates WQWQ-LP/WQTV-LP. The outlets share studios, in the Hirsch Tower, on Broadway Avenue in Downtown Cape Girardeau. Syndicated programming on KFVS includes The Middle, The Dr. Oz Show, and Live! with Kelly among others. KFVS had previously served the Jonesboro media market as the default CBS station on satellite providers. It is not known how much longer that arrangement will continue, after the sign-on of the Jonesboro area’s first locally based CBS affiliate August 1, 2015 on a second digital subchannel of Fox affiliate KJNB-LD.
