KNDU is an NBC affiliate serving south-central and southeastern Washington statemarker. The station, which broadcasts on digital channel 26, is based in the Tri-Cities region of Pascomarker, Richlandmarker and Kennewickmarker. The station is licensed to Richland, but its studio is located in Kennewick. It is a sister station to KNDOmarker in Yakimamarker. Both stations are owned by Cowles Publishing Company of Spokanemarker as part of The KHQ Television Group.

Though identifying as a station in its own right, KNDU is considered a semi-satellite of KNDO. It clears nearly all of KNDO's syndicated programming, though it airs separate identifications and a separate newscast.


KNDU first took the air in 1961 as a primary ABC affiliate, which also carried some NBC programming. In 1965, KNDU became a primary NBC affiliate, but continued to air some ABC programs until 1970 when KVEWmarker went on the air as a full-time ABC affiliate.
