KCOP My13 first aired on Sep 17, 1948 as KMTR-TV and changed its calls to KLAC-TV later. KMTR was the radio sibling of the station as it began operating as an independent television. However, after sometime in 1949 it started broadcasting some of the DuMont Television Network programs as its affiliate KTLA @ Channel 5 disaffiliated with the network after a partnership of one year. At present the call sign: KMTR is used by a Eugene-based NBC affiliate and it has no connection with KCOP My13.
KLAC-TV on Dec 23, 1953 was acquired by Copley Press and calls were changed to KCOP. Later in 1957, the television was sold to Bing-Crosby and members before being purchased by NAFI Corporation (later Chris-Craft Industries); the company would run it for the longest period that spanned over four decades.
It aired general entertainment programming for almost 46 years as an independent station and was rated at 3rd or 4th place in Southern California the spot it would frequently exchange with KHJ (now KCAL-TV). It would share Operation Prime Time content by 1978.
Time with UPN as an Affiliate
Chris-Craft and its subsidiary, United Television on Oct 27, 1993 joined hands with Paramount Pictures (a subsidiary of Viacom). The Channel 13 was launched on Jan 16, 1995 as a UNPN affiliate but the later disaffiliated when Viacom acquired remaining 50% interest in the station in 2000. It started carrying a considerable amount of talk programming including The Jenny Jones Show and The Ricki Lake Show, sitcoms, syndicated cartoons and reality series.
On Feb 22, 2006, KCOP became a MyNetworkTV affiliate. The UPN content wasn’t stopped on the stations across US until Sep 15, 2006. KCOP would drop UPN’s programming completely by Aug 31, 2006. In Sep 2006, the service started introducing itself as MyNetworkTV, the new branding of the TV which would later change to a more precise “My13 Los Angeles” in May 2007.
