KTBS-TV, virtual channel 3 (UHF digital channel 28), is a CBS-affiliated television station licensed to Shreveport, Louisiana, United States and also serving Texarkana, Texas. The station is owned by locally based KTBS, LLC (owned by the Wray Properties Trust, which is managed by Betty Wray Anderson, John D. Wray and Edwin N. Wray, Jr.), as part of a duopoly with Minden-licensed CW affiliate KPXJ (channel 21). The two stations share studios on East Kings Highway on the eastern side of Shreveport and transmitter facilities near St. Johns Baptist Church Road (southeast of Mooringsport and Caddo Lake) in rural northern Caddo Parish. KTBS-TV is one of a handful of TV stations today to have locally based ownership.

On cable, the station is available on Comcast Xfinity channels 4 (standard definition) and 1003 (high definition) in Shreveport; Suddenlink channel 5 (SD and HD) in Bossier City; NewWave Communications channels 7 (SD) and 200 (HD) in Blanchard, Vivian, Springhill and Mansfield; and Cable One channels 3 (SD) and 1003 (HD) in Texarkana and Fouke, Arkansas. KTBS is also carried on some cable providers in the Tyler–Longview–Lufkin–Nacogdoches market (alongside local ABC affiliates KLTV and KTRE) in East Texas,[citation needed] although certain programs are subject to blackout due to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s network non-duplication and syndication exclusivity rules.
