History

KEYU established on Feb 6, 1998 went on air in March 2004 under the ownership of Equity Broadcasting Company. It originally operated as a Univision affiliate and was also the first Spanish language affiliated in the Amarillo area. The original studios of the station were located on South Kentucky Street on Amarillo’s southwest side. It previously was carried by Cox Communications before being replaced by fiber optic.

Equity Broadcasting Corporation on June 25, 2008 revealed its plans to release KEYU, its LP translators and other Univision affiliates in six different markets to Luken Communications, however the deal couldn’t be materialized as Equity in Dec 2008 declared bankruptcy and Luken withdrew from buying the Equity holdings’ assets. As a result of dispute resulting from Luken’s withdrawal, Equity dropped RTN from all of its assets.

KEYU and three other channels were bought by Drewry Communications in 2009 and under the new owner the studios of the channel were relocated to Broadway Drive in northern Amarillo. Drewry soon after taking over the full-power service removed Univision’s affiliation and replaced it with Telemundo. Raycom Media on Aug 10, 2015 publicly announced its plans to acquire 8 of Drewry Communication’s stations; the sale consummated on Dec 1, 2015. Raycom and Gray Television merger following the approval of Federal Communications Commission on Dec 20, 2018 shifted KEYU under the corporate umbrella of Gray Television. Gray became the owner of KEYU on Jan 2, 2019. In Aug 2018 it dropped LATV from its 2nd digital subchannel and put Ion Television on its 3rd digital subchannel.
