KHVM-LD channel 48 is a digital low-power television station in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Its main affiliation is with the Global Christian Network network. It broadcasts with a 15 kW signal from its Arden Hills, Minnesota tower, which it shares with sister station KTCJ-LD channel 50, a Cornerstone Television Network affiliate, and Daystar Television Network affiliate WDMI-LD channel 62. The channels' tower was hit by lightning around Memorial Day 2010, forcing both stations KHVM-LD and KTCJ-LD to go silent (WDMI converted from analog to digital about the same time). The RabbitEars.Info website reports the stations as being back on the air.

KHVM broadcast a highly directional signal on channel 28 that carried southwest, to possibly to avoid signal conflicts with Wisconsin Public Television station WHWC-TV channel 28 in Menomonie, Wisconsin. KHVM has FCC "Special Temporary Authority" (STA) to broadcast at 0.35 kW power. In addition to WHWC, KAWB in Brainerd, Minnesota, which also broadcasts on channel 28, are displacing KHVM, which has a Construction Permit from the FCC to move to channel 48. KHVM began broadcasting on channel 48 over the last weekend in July 2011.
