History

KXLY and KHQ received FCC’s grant to construct television stations on July 12, 1952. KHQ was the first of the two to launch on Dec 20, 1952. The film, Texas Trouble Shooters, was the first program to be aired by the service. Its first program as an NBC affiliate was an episode of Your Hit Parade. The oldest TV in Cascades, the channel is also the second oldest channel in the state of Washington. Cowles Publishing originally held the interest in the television and its radio sister KHQ 590 AM. Both the radios were sold by Cowles in 1985. A dual NBC and ABC affiliate in the area, it dropped ABC when KREM signed on air in 1954. It is one of the few channels in the history to have retained its original calls, affiliation and same ownership to the date. Spending more than 40 years in studios, the channel relocated itself to 1201 W. Sprague Avenue in downtown Spokane in 2001.The all-digital facility has helped the channel to rise to the challenges to modern day. Q6 is the traditional branding of the service. It converted into a digital channel on Feb 17, 2009.

At present the syndicated programming produced by the channel includes TMZ, Wheel of Fortune, Judge Judy, Jeopardy! and Hot Bench.
