KTLN-TV is a Christian-themed TV station in San Rafael, California, broadcasting on UHF channel 47. KTLN is owned by OTA Broadcasting, LLC, a company controlled by Michael Dell's MSD Capital; however, the station is operated under a local marketing agreement by Chicago-based Christian Communications of Chicagoland, the former owners of Chicago's WCFC-TV, as part of its Total Living Network.
Originally, Christian Communications of Chicagoland owned KTLN outright, but it filed to sell the station to OTA Broadcasting in June 2011. The sale was completed in October 6, 2011; as part of the deal, Christian Communications of Chicagoland will continue to operate KTLN via a local marketing agreement through 2013.
