KWBM, virtual and UHF digital channel 31, is a Daystar owned-and-operated television station serving Springfield, United States, licensed to Harrison, Arkansas. The station is owned by Word of Inc.. KWBM's offices are located on Enterprise Avenue in southeast Springfield, its transmitter is located in rural Taney County, just northeast of Forsyth; the station first signed on the air on January 26, 2001. The station was founded by the Equity Broadcasting Corporation. Prior to the station's sign-on, southwestern Missouri residents could only receive WB network programs on cable and satellite through Chicago-based superstation WGN, which carried WB programming nationally from the network's January 11, 1995 launch; the station operated two low-power translator stations: KBBL-LP in Springfield, KNJE-LP in Aurora. On January 24, 2006, the Warner Bros. unit of Time Warner and CBS Corporation announced that the two companies would shut down The WB and UPN and combine the networks' respective programming to create a new "fifth" network called The CW.

One month on February 22, 2006, News Corporation announced the launch of a new "sixth" network called MyNetworkTV, which would be operated by Fox Television Stations and its syndication division Twentieth Television. Equity refused in full to affiliate their stations with The CW due to the network's carriage costs, handing the affiliation to UPN affiliate K15CZ. On December 8, 2008, Equity Media Holdings filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. KWBM was sold to at auction to religious broadcaster Daystar in early 2009; the station's digital signal is multiplexed: Daystar leases the second and third subchannels of KWBM to Nexstar Media Group to extend the signal coverage of Fox affiliate KRBK, which until 2018 did not cover Springfield proper with their main signal licensed to Osage Beach, Missouri. What would be channel 31.2 instead remaps as a virtual channel to KRBK's channel 49.1 via PSIP. KWBM transmits KRBK's MeTV subchannel as 49.2. With KRBK's move to the Fordland antenna farm, it is unknown.

Because it was granted an original construction permit after the Federal Communications Commission finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997, the station did not receive a companion channel for its digital signal. Instead, at the end of the digital conversion period for full-power television stations, On June 12, 2009, KWBM would have been required to turn off its analog signal and turn on its digital signal one month on July 3; the termination of KWBM's analog signal resulted in the station being dropped from satellite providers Dish Network and DirecTV, due to the lack of unique local programming from the main Daystar national feed, a revocation of the station's retransmission consent agreement after the sale from Equity to Daystar. Mediacom and Charter Communications continue to receive a direct satellite feed of the station, Daystar maintains carriage of the station on those systems via must-carry declaration. KBBL-LP and KNJE-LP, as low-power stations, were not required to cease analog transmissions upon the 2009 transition deadline, but were required to move their channel positions as their channel allocations were among the high band UHF channels that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.

These stations were not sold to Daystar as part of its purchase of KWBM. The FCC cancelled KNJE-LP's license on August 6, 2010 and deleted the KNJE-LP call sign from its database. Query the FCC's TV station database for KWBM BIAfn's Media Web Database -- Information on KWBM-TV

Book Soup

Book Soup is an independent bookstore located at 8818 Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, is the largest general interest independent bookstore in Hollywood. The store is "known for its tall, teetering stacks and mazes of shelves crammed with titles that attracted entertainment and tourist industry clientele..." Popular with many in the entertainment industry, the store continues to hosts events featuring a variety of celebrity authors who have so far included Muhammad Ali, Howard Stern, Annie Leibovitz, Chuck Palahniuk, Jenna Jameson, Hunter S. Thompson, Norman Mailer, The Doors. Considered a "cultural fixture" of the Sunset Strip, Book Soup has been featured as a location in a number of films and television shows; the store was founded in 1975 by Glenn Goldman. Goldman and David Mackler raised $50,000 and, after doing extensive research on where to locate their store, opened Book Soup on Sunset Boulevard; the rationale for the location, as Goldman explained, was that there "had been a period of upheaval here in the'60s—of thought and ideas—and I felt that the people who lived in the neighborhood would and could support a bookstore."

Book Soup was nestled between a head strip club. Mackler designed the store's interior; the store and its staff of two struggled for two decades to run a profit. It nearly closed early in its existence, but a publisher's representative helped the store re-establish its credit line and saved the business. In 1985, Book Soup again nearly closed, but another publisher's representative loaned it the money to stay afloat. Book Soup added a storefront newsstand, "News Mews," and began selling thousands of domestic and international periodicals and newspapers. In the late 1980s, Book Soup moved two blocks further down Sunset Boulevard to its current, more spacious location and expanded to 50,000 titles, it began earning a reputation for art, photography and music books as well as for hosting high-profile events featuring authors and celebrities such as Gore Vidal, James Ellroy, Mikal Gilmore, Edward Albee, Robert Wagner, Tom Stoppard. A second Book Soup store at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, opened in 2002 but closed in 2007 due to high rent and the impact of competition from and large discount chain stores such as Wal-Mart and Target.

As of July 2017 there is a branch of Book Soup in the departure lounge of the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles airport. Goldman announced he was selling Book Soup on January 2, 2009 died of pancreatic cancer on January 3, 2009. Vroman's Bookstore and Book Soup signed an agreement October 2009, to purchase Book Soup. Book Soup hosts author readings on an daily basis; the store is well known for its many publicity stunts, some staged by authors and some staged by the store to attract customers. Among the more notorious are: For a book reading by Paris Hilton, Hilton's publicist hired protesters to picket the store with signs saying, "Read a book, don't write one." After Margaret Thatcher banned Peter Wright's nonfiction exposé, Spy Catcher, Book Soup ran an ad in Private Eye magazine which declared "Banned in Britain. Available in America." The store sold 3,000 copies of the book in the next three weeks. When a fatwa was issued condemning Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, Goldman wrote a ransom note to the Los Angeles Times declaring that freedom of speech was being held hostage.

Rupert Murdoch wrote Goldman a letter praising his "ransom note." When the National Organization for Women criticized Bret Easton Ellis's 1991 novel, American Psycho, for glamorizing and condoning rape, Book Soup put fliers into its copies of the novel, blasting NOW for drawing attention to the book and disclaiming any approval of the novel's content. The store sold 18 copies of the book in 24 hours. • During her one-woman show, Letting Go of God, Julia Sweeney states that she bought Karen Armstrong's "A History of God" at Book Soup. • Singing sister duo, Aly and AJ’s photoshoot for their EP Ten Years & promotional tour photos were taken in the parking lot. • The bookstore serves as a location in Jesse Forever.
