KUBD is a CBS affiliate in Ketchikan, Alaska. The station is owned by Denali Media Holdings (a subsidiary of local cable provider GCI), and is a satellite of KTNL-TV.

The station went on the air April 1, 1995 as KNEB-TV, operating on analog channel 4. It became KUBD in 1998. Originally a TBN affiliate, the station switched to Pax (now Ion Television) in 1998 and joined CBS in 2000. It continued a secondary affiliation with Pax for some time after joining CBS.

KUBD launched their digital signal in early 2006 on channel 13. KUBD stayed on channel 13 when the digital switchover took place in 2009.

KUBD is seen on cable channel 4 on GCI Cable and KPU CommVision, the latter of which is owned by the City of Ketchikan.

On December 9, 2013, Ketchikan Television filed to sell KUBD, along with KTNL-TV in Sitka and KXLJ-LD in Juneau, to Denali Media Holdings, a subsidiary of local cable provider GCI. The deal will make them sister stations to NBC affiliate KATH-LD in Juneau and its satellite KSCT-LP in Sitka, as well as fellow CBS affiliate KTVA in Anchorage, Alaska. The sale was completed on July 28, 2014.
