KEYC-TV is the CBS-affiliated television station for southwestern Minnesota, United States that is licensed to Mankato.

It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on VHF channel 12 (also the station's virtual channel via PSIP from a transmitter in Lewisville.

Owned by United Communications, KEYC has studios on Lookout Drive in North Mankato. On cable, the station can be seen on Charter Spectrumchannel 10 and in high definition on digital channel 782.

The Mankato market is within reach of some television stations based in the Twin Cities.

CBS owned-and-operated station WCCO-TVhas an over-the-air signal that reaches just short of Mankato proper. However, the station is offered locally on Spectrum channel 4.

Due to the cable presence of WCCO, KEYC can invoke the Federal Communications Commission's network non-duplication rule resulting in Spectrum blacking out programming from the former during network shows.

WCCO's newscasts and some of its syndicated programs can be seen, however.
