KXDP-LD, virtual channel 18 (VHF digital channel 6), is a low-power[1] television station licensed to Denver, Colorado, United States. Owned by Mount Pleasant, South Carolina–based Syncom Media Group, it broadcasts a Regional Mexican radio format as "La Invasora 87.7".

History

Because the station broadcast an analog signal on channel 6, its audio could be received at 87.75 MHz FM. Originally carrying a Spanish format, the station's audio programming changed to sports with ESPN Deportes Radio on July 7, 2010, with English-language local programming on July 27, 2010.[2][3] The English language programming was soon moved to KDSP 102.3.

The station received its license for digital operation on July 12, 2021, changing its call sign to KXDP-LD, at which point the analog radio signal went silent.

On July 18, 2021, KXDP-LD received special temporary authority from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to air its audio signal on 87.75 MHz FM again.
