KNXT is a television station owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno, broadcasting on digital channel 50. The station is licensed in Visalia, California, about 45 miles southeast of Fresno. The license of the station is commercial but KNXT is a non-commercial operation.

Programming on KNXT is mainly religious, with many shows coming from the EWTN network, though KNXT is somewhat less conservative doctrinally (but firmly in line with Catholic Church teachings). The shows consist of local daily and Sunday Mass, talk shows, music and variety programs, the Rosary, children's programs, and Catholic movies. KNXT is rebroadcast on KNXT-LP channel 38 in Bakersfield. Formerly owned by Cocola Broadcasting, KNXT-LP was acquired by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno, owners of KNXT, on November 2, 2007.

KNXT is the only full-power, twenty-four hour Catholic broadcast station in the United States, although many other Roman Catholic Dioceses around the nation provide such programming to cable or closed circuit systems.

From 1951 to 1984, KNXT was the call sign of the current KCBS-TV, the CBS owned-and-operated station in Los Angeles.
