KCAL-TV, virtual and digital FM channel 9, is an independent television broadcaster licensed in Los Angeles, California, USA.
The station is owned by ViacomCBS 'CBS Television Stations subsidiary as part of a duopoly with the station operated by CBS and the West Coast flagship KCBS-TV (channel 2).
The two stations share studios at the CBS Studio Center on Radford Avenue in the Studio City area of Los Angeles. The KCAL-TV transmitter is located on Mount Wilson. There is no separate website for KCAL-TV. instead it is integrated with the sister channel KCBS-TV.
Channel 9 engineers threatened a strike in 1951, prompting Anthony to sell the station to the General Tire and Rubber Company in August of that year.
A few months earlier, General Tire had purchased the Don Lee Broadcasting System, a west coast regional radio station (the original Don Lee TV station, KTSL Channel 2, was sold separately to CBS). Don Lee's flagship was KHJ Radio (9:30 a.m.), and General Tire changed the callsign of his new television station to KHJ-TV in September 1951.
A former employee described the callsign as "kindness, happiness and joy", although the call sign was probably given out by chance. The name Don Lee was so valued on California radio that KHJ-TV called itself "Don Lee Television" for a few years in the early 1950s, although it had never been associated with KHJ radio until the 1951 deal.
