History

On May 23, 1988, the original construction permit of the channel was released and the KUSG were assigned as the calls of the new station on Sep 11, 1989. However, FCC didn’t approve the license until Jan 24, 2000. The channel signed on air on Aug 21, 1999 and was initially operated as a satellite of KUTV, a CBS owned and operated service at that time. CBS then released KUSG and KUTV to Four Points Media Group on Jan 10, 2008. It became a separately programed service of KUTV on March 17, 2008 and singed with Retro Television Network. The programming of KUSG was initially rebroadcasted by KUBX-LP and KCBU both under the ownership of Equity Media Holdings A contract conflict between Luken Communications and Equity Media Holdings put the programing on halt on many RTN affiliates on Jan 4, 2009.

KUSG gave away RTN for This TV in June 2009. RTV has since shifted to KCSG. It again switched affiliation and got linked with MyNetworkTV on Sep 20, 2010. However, This TV programming was retained as a secondary choice. The switch shortly made it one of two MyNetworkTV affiliates operating in Utah market. KMYU became the new callsign on Nov 16, 2010. Sinclair Broadcast Group on Sep 8, 2011 revealed its plan to acquire Four Points from Cerberus Capital Management which it eventually did on Jan 3, 2012.
