KXPX-LP, channel 14, is a television station in Corpus Christi, Texas, United States. It is an affiliate of the Retro Television Network. KXPX is owned by Corpus 18, LLC, along with Fox affiliate KUQI (channel 38) and MyNetworkTV affiliate KTOV-LP (channel 21).
KXPX's call sign derives from its former affiliation with Pax TV (now Ion Television), which commenced upon the network's launch in 1998. It switched to The Sportsman Channel in 2003, and to Retro Television Network in 2009.
GH Broadcasting announced that it would sell KXPX to London Broadcasting Company, owner of KIII (channel 3), in March 2012. The sale fell through in early 2013, after which GH declared bankruptcy. On July 3, 2012, GH informed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that it would surrender its class A status, as it determined that it could not comply with the minimum requirements for the classification; KXPX had been a class A station since 2000.
GH Broadcasting declared bankruptcy in early 2013, remaining as debtor-in-possession. In late 2014, the sale of the station to Corpus 18, LLC, a partnership formed by the noteholders of debt of GH and High Maintenance Broadcasting, owners of KUQI and a related business to GH, was finalized. On October 2, 2015, Corpus 18 agreed to sell KXPX-LP, KUQI, and KTOV-LP to Sinclair Broadcast Group for $9.25 million.
