K47DF-D, virtual channel 47 (UHF digital channel 22), known on-air as KAJA, is a low-power Telemundo-affiliated television station licensed to Corpus Christi, Texas, United States. The station is owned by the Cordillera Communications subsidiary of Evening Post Industries, and is sister to NBC affiliate KRIS-TV (channel 6) and low-power independent station K22JA-D; Cordillera also operates CBS affiliate KZTV (channel 10) through a shared services agreement with owner SagamoreHill Broadcasting. The four stations share studios on Artesian Street in Downtown Corpus Christi; K47DF-D's transmitter is located in Robstown. The station is simulcast in high definition on KZTV's second digital subchannel to increase its broadcasting radius.

On cable, K47DF-D can be seen on Charter Spectrum channel 16. From December 13, 2011 to May 2012, the station's owners and the cable company (as Time Warner Cable at the time) were under a dispute regarding carriage fees, leaving TWC's Corpus Christi area customers without Telemundo.

It originally carried programming from the Telemundo Network. As of September 26, 2010, It carried programming from Azteca América. However, on September 30 it flipped back to Telemundo.

K68DJ had applied to the Federal Communications Commission for permission to move to UHF channel 43. As a low-power broadcasting station, K68DJ is not required to broadcast digitally. That application was cancelled K68DJ applied to move to Channel 22 and has constructed facilities on that frequency with new call sign K22JA-D

On February 20, 2013, the FCC cancelled the station's license, citing operating on an out-of-core channel (52 to 69). As a result of this notice KAJA had ceased transmissions on K68DJ on January,2013 and went digital on a new channel with new call letters of K22JA-D. In 2014, K22JA-D became the digital companion channel for K47DF as K47DF-D. KAJA can now be seen on K47DF-D 47.1 in 720p.

K22JA-D formerly had an analog repeater, K38EB (Channel 38, later 32) in Kingsville, but due to arrival of KUQI on UHF 38, the repeater in Kingsville can now be seen on K49DV in Beeville.
