KWHE is a television station in Honolulu, Hawaii, broadcasting locally on channel 14 as a LeSEA owned-and-operated station. KWHE can also be seen on satellite stations KWHH channel 14 in Hilo and KWHM channel 21 in Wailuku, and on Oceanic Cable channel 11 statewide.


KWHE made its on-air debut in 1988 and offers a mix of regular secular general interest programs (mostly sitcoms, classic westerns, dramas, first-run syndicated fare and local sports events), with religious programming filling most of its 24/7 schedule. They would later expand their broadcasting reach in the state with KWHH signing on the air on October 1, 1989 and KWHM hitting the air on June 15, 1993.

They are also one of six television stations in Honolulu airing religious programming: KAAH-TV, KALO, KWBN, KKAI, and KUPU are the other five. KWHE, KAAH, KKAI and KUPU are licensed by the FCC as commercial outlets; however, KWHE and KKAI are the only two out of the six that air secular programming fare since its sign-on.

KWHE was also an affiliate of The WB from 1995 to 1998, but would lose the affiliation to KFVE-TV afterwards.

KWHE, whose call letters stand for World Harvest Entertainment, is of course, part of the World Harvest TV network and follows the same programming pattern as their sister stations in South Bend, Indianapolis, Denver, Colorado Springs, Tulsa and New Orleans.

It should also be noted that KWHE, whose secular programming is usually family friendly, is where you can also find reruns of the long-running crime drama series Hawaii Five-0, which was filmed in Honolulu, running daily on its schedule here. The show is still popular among viewers in the state and has continued to run endlessly since it left the CBS network lineup in 1980, making them the third station in Honolulu (the other two being KFVE and KGMB, whose call letters also show up in most of the episodes) to continue airing the show after it ceased production.
