KXMB-TV, channel 12, is the CBS-affiliated television station for Bismarck, North Dakota. The station serves the southern half of the Western North Dakota television market.
The station is owned by Reiten Television of Minot, and is one of two full-fledged stations in the KX Television network of CBS affiliates in western North Dakota, along with Minot's KXMC-TV. KXMB is the largest station in the KX group, and the group's president, Tim Reiten, also serves as this station's general manager. However, it is considered a semi-satellite of KXMC. It clears most of KXMC's syndicated programming, but produces its own newscasts and airs separate station identifications and commercials. Master control and some internal operations of KXMA and KXMB are based at the facilities of KXMC in Minot.
KXMB also operates a semi-satellite, KXMA-TV, channel 2 in Dickinson. KXMA also identifies itself as a station in its own right, but airs a time-shifted feed of KXMB-TV in Mountain Time most of the day, except for separate commercials. KXMA's programming is repeated on low-powered translator K09FG in Lemmon, South Dakota.
