History

KXII hit the waves on Aug 12, 1956 as KVSO and was originally owned by a family-led consortium led by Albert Riesen. KVSO 1240 AM served as the radio sister of the station. The family also had ownership over The Daily Ardmoreite. It after its launch became an NBC affiliate and had its transmitter located north of Ardmore in the Arbuckle Mountains. The television gained a second radio sibling in 1957 when KVSO 1071.1 FM (later KYNZ) was launched.

Riesen family released the channel to Texoma Broadcasting in later 1958. The new owner after taking over the television station changed its calls to KXII. It then became a secondary affiliate of CBS in spring of 1960. The channel in Sep 1974 started clearing a large part of CBS lineup including daytime shows, some prime time programs and sports content. Channel 12 then turned form Primary NBC and Secondary CBS to Primary CBS and secondary NBC station. It formally became a primary CBS affiliate in Jan 1977. In the same year, the station also relocated its studios to South Commerce Street and this facility is still active for the news operations for the Oklahoma side of the market in addition to the main facility in Sherman. It officially switched to CBS as its exclusive affiliate in Sep 1985.

Gray Television became the new owner of KXII on Oct 1, 1999 after initially announcing the deal on April 15, 1999.
