KHBS is a television station in Fort Smith, Arkansas, broadcasting locally on channel 40 as an affiliate of ABC. Additionally, a satellite station, KHOG-TV in Fayetteville, Arkansas, rebroadcasts the station's signal on channel 29. Both stations are owned by Hearst-Argyle Television and are normally referred to as one entity.

Channel 40 began as CBS affiliate KFPW-TV in 1971. In 1977, a satellite station called KTVP on channel 29 in Fayetteville was added. It was Fayetteville's second attempt at a commercial television station, after KGTO-TV, airing NBC and CBS programs in the area on channel 36, went dark after a few years in the early 1970s.

Both stations have changed callsigns and their affiliation in their history. In 1978, the stations moved from CBS to ABC. In 1983, KFPW-TV changed its call letters to KHBS, and in 1987, KTVP became KHOG-TV.
