KFDM-TV (Beaumont, TX)

KFDM is a television station licensed to Beaumont, Texas and serving the Beaumont/Port Arthur market. The station operates on physical channel 25 or virtual channels 6.1 (which is affiliated with CBS) and 6.2 (The CW). The station is owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group. It also serves the Lake Charles, Louisiana market as the market's default CBS station (especially since Lafayette's KLFY-TV's coverage was severely crippled by the low power the FCC gave it on TV RF 10 with its digital signal; KLFY-TV on analog 10 could easily cover Lake Charles). The station's studios are located at the Interstate 10/U.S. Highway 69 (Eastex Freeway) interchange in Beaumont, which is shared with KBTV-TV, and the transmitter location is in Vidor, Texas. [1]
