KBSI is the Fox-affiliated television station for southeast Missouri, western Kentucky, and southern Illinois that is licensed to Cape Girardeau, Missouri. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 22 from a transmitter north of the city in rural Cape Girardeau County. Owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, the station is sister to MyNetworkTV affiliate WDKA. The two share studios on Enterprise Street in Cape Girardeau.

Syndicated programming on KBSI includes: Two and a Half Men, Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown, and Judge Alex. Although WDKA operates its own digital signal, the station is offered on KBSI's second digital subchannel.


This station has been serving the area since September 10, 1983. Sinclair and Fox recently finalized a six-year affiliation contract extension for Sinclair's 19 Fox affiliates including KBSI. The station's affiliation contract now expires in March 2012.


NBC affiliate WPSD produces a nightly 9 o'clock newscast on KBSI originating from studios on Television Lane in Paducah, Kentucky.
