KLTJ, virtual channel 22 (UHF digital channel 23), is a Daystar owned-and-operated television station serving Houston, Texas, United States that is licensed to Galveston. The station is owned by the Daystar Television Network. KLTJ's offices are located in Clear Lake, and its transmitter is located near Missouri City, in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County.


The station was originally licensed to Galveston Educational TV, Inc. under the call sign KUYA; it is unknown whether the station ever went on the air under those call letters.

On July 16, 1989, Eldred Thomas moved the KLTJ religious programming inventory and call sign from channel 57 (frequency now occupied by KUBE-TV) to channel 22 to take advantage of an improved coverage area.[1]

Before moving the call letters to Houston, Thomas owned KLTJ (channel 49, now KSTR-DT) in Dallas from 1983 to 1987, and was a sister station to radio outlet KVTT-FM (now KKXT), which Thomas also owned.[2] Both the Dallas and Houston stations were Trinity Broadcasting Network partner stations, with the current Daystar affiliation coming several years later.

Analog-to-digital conversion

KLTJ discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 22, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 23,[4] using PSIP to display KLTJ's virtual channel as 22 on digital television receivers.
