KWBH-LP, channel 27, is a low-powered affiliate of The CW in Rapid City, South Dakota. KWBH is seen on cable channel 16 in most areas. Much of the programming comes from The CW Plus. They are owned by Rapid Broadcasting, which also owns KNBN and KKRA-LP. KWBH is simulcasted in HD on KNBN's digital subchannel 21.2.
The station signed on in 1998 as an NBC affiliate with the call letters KNBN-LP. In 2000, Rapid Broadcasting began broadcasting NBC programming on full-power KNBN channel 21. Before KNBN's upgrade to a full power station, KUSA in Denver had served as Rapid City's de facto NBC affiliate on cable TV systems. In 2003, channel 27 became The WB affiliate KWBH-LP, and carried programming from The CW Plus' predecessor, The WB 100+ Station Group. On September 2006, UPN and The WB merged to be The CW. KWBH joined the new network upon its launch.
