FCC licensed the channel on June 21, 1990. Quickly hit by the financial troubles, it went on air in Nov 1992. Liberty Broadcasting filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Dec 17, 1992 which was then further converted into Chapter 7 bankruptcy on June 22, 1993. Seagull Communications on Oct 20, 1993 applied to buy the channel out of bankruptcy on Nov 12, 1993. The calls of KCSG were changed to KSGI and Federal Communications Commission approved the sale on Feb 1, 1994. It returned to the airs as an independent service on the same date.
