The original construction permit for the channel was released by FCC on June 10, 1994; KAIO were the calls assigned to the television service on Sep 1, 1994. Initially intended to make it a non-commercial television, the idea was later abandoned and it changed its call letters to KTLM on Oct 5, 1998. With new calls came new affiliate Telemundo as it beat out XHRIO to take the Spanish regional network. XHRIO had been struggling to reach Lower Rio Grande Valley; the station signed on air on Aug 1, 1999.
