History

KCWY-TV went on air on Aug 12, 1980 as the second TV service in western Wyoming. It then acquired satellites KTUX-TV (renamed KWWY-TV) and KOWY in Rock Springs and Lander to propagate its signal. The current call signs were adopted by the station and its satellite on Jan 1, 1987 and were jointly labelled as Wyoming New Network until 2000 when Benedek Broadcasting truncated much of its Casper operations and turned the translators as semi-satellites of KGWN, a CBS affiliate in Cheyenne. After the bankruptcy of Benedek, his assets were purchased by Chelsey Broadcasting in 2002.

Chelsey in 2003 sold the assets in two separate deals with SagamoreHill Broadcasting and Mark III. KWGN and KSTF became part of SagamoreHill while KGWC along with KGWR and KGWL became the Mark III stations. However, the deal with the Mark III took three years for the approval and completed on May 31, 2006. Mark III revealed its plans to sell KGWC to Gray Television on Feb 12, 2008, however the deal was cancelled in Oct 2018 by DOJ: Department of Justice which considered KGWL as Casper station.

Programming

KGWC at present does not host any local newscast as it closed its news operations in June 2000 following the merger of its news operations with KGWN. The local news returned in collaboration with KTWO but was shut down again on Jan 3, 2006 mainly because weak viewer share.
