WKDH's transmitter is located near Woodland, Mississippi. It is legally owned by Southern Broadcasting (no relation to "Southern Broadcast Corporation of Sarasota", a legal name for Calkins Media), but is controlled by WTVA, Inc. through a local marketing agreement. It shares a studio in Tupelo with WTVA and the area's Fox affiliate WLOV-TV. The station's general manager is Dee Spain, son of WTVA founder Frank K. Spain.
WKDH signed on for the first time on June 18, 2001, bringing an over-the-air ABC affiliate to north Mississippi for the first time since WLOV dropped ABC for Fox in 1995. In the meantime, cable systems in the area piped in WPTY-TV from Memphis or WCFT-TV from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
WKDH airs "Community Edition" Saturdays at 6 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 a.m. The program highlights issues and events in North Mississippi. "Community Edition" is hosted by longtime North Mississippi Radio and TV Personality Stan Allen.
