History as KHBC
The Ch 20 UHF slot was previously filled by KHBC which had its establishment dating back to somewhere in mid-50s. However, the channel couldn’t run long because the market size was too small and maintained a very small number of television sets. A construction permit reserved for KIRV got expired without use as the channel didn’t sign on air.
KTVD went on air on Dec 1, 1988 as a non-affiliated station and broadcasted general entertainment content consisting of cartoons, westerns, cartoons, movies and sitcoms. Religious programming was also part of the lineup. During its first two years of the activity, the channel incurred financial losses and eventually fired for bankruptcy in Aug 1990. It at one point of time got reserved to only religious programming, infomercials and low-budget content. However, it started redeeming itself into a profit generating service with the gradual introduction of paid programs including first-run talk shows, syndicated content, classical sitcoms and cartoons. Newsweb Corporation in March 1994 acquired the service and brought it out of complete bankruptcy that loomed for at least four years. It then became a charter affiliate of UP on Oct 27, 1993. The company then made the purchase of Sterling based KTVS (later KCDO) in 1999 and converted it into a fulltime relay station of KTVD; calls were changed to KUPN in 2002.
Newsweb in Dec 2005 revealed its plans to sell the channel to Gannet Company which also owned KUSA; the deal consummated on June 26, 2006. However, Newsweb kept KUPN to later convert it into an independent channel in June 2006. Upon the launch of The CW in 2006, KTVD decided to opt for News Corporation’s MyNetworkTV on July 12, 2006. It formally got linked with upstart network on Sep 5, 2006. Upon the split of Gannet’s broadcasting and print media arms on Jun 29, 2015, KTVD along with sister KUSA shifted under the umbrella of Tegna, Inc.
Syndicated programming aired by the channel includes The People’s Court, 2 Broke Girls, The King of Queens, How I Met Your Mother and others. It presently offers 20.5 hours of locally produced news-bulletins with 3.5 hrs on weekdays and 1.5 hrs on each Sun and Sat. KTVD also produces NBC’s Sunday Night Football pregame show Football Night in America. My20 is available online with headline 9News, weather and sports updates.
