KCBU is a television station in Price, Utah, broadcasting locally on channel 3 as an affiliate of the Daystar Television Network. Founded March 12, 2003, the station is owned by Equity Media Holdings. Until January 4, 2009 KCBU was an affiliate of the Retro Television Network (RTV).

The station is digital-only.[1] Until December 30, 2008, the station did however have an analog signal on channel 3, broadcasting 70,000 watts of power to the surrounding area.

The station also has a construction permit to increase the power of the digital signal to 40,000 watts and move its transmitter to a peak south of Springville, Utah. This would effectively give the station signal reach into the Salt Lake City market it is a part of. At the point the construction permit is approved, KCBU is to be broadcasting on digital channel 11.

On January 4, 2009, a contract conflict between Equity Media Holdings Corporation and RTV interrupted the programming on many RTV affiliates.[2] As a result, Luken moved RTV operations to its headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and dropped all Equity-owned affiliates, including KCBU, immediately.[3] RTV remained available in Utah on KUSG in St. George until later in 2009, when that station switched to This TV; RTV has since affiliated with KCSG.

KCBU was sold at auction to the Daystar Television Network on April 16, 2009, indicating another programming change. [4] The station began broadcasting Daystar programming as of August 25, 2009.
