History

KJCT went on air on Oct 22, 1979 as Western Colorado’s first station since the inception of KREX-TV in 1954. A semi-satellite of Colorado Springs-based KRDO-TV station, the channel beat out to KREX to get affiliated with KREX under its original ownership Pikes Peak Broadcasting Company. It operated with full production facilities in Grand Junction; however it received majority of its programming from microwave signals of KRDO. Under Chief Engineer Roger Hightower, the channel went for its first digital facilities in 90s.

NPG: News-Press & Gazette Company in 2006 revealed its purchase of KJCT and KRDO-TV and its radio sister KRDO radio. Its third digital sub-channel got linked with The CW in the later part of 2008. On Oct 31, 2013, NPG sold its asset to Excalibur Broadcasting owned by a former Gray Executive. Gray then operated the station under JSA and SSA which made it a sister to KKCO. The calls were changed to KGBY on Oct 28, 2014 when Gray transferred the station to Chang Media Group.
