History

WKHA was launched as one of the ten charter affiliates of Kentucky Educational Television on Sep 23, 1968. All of the satellites of WKHA were strategically spread to serve almost all of the state. The other fellow KET satellites included WKSO and WKPI which were the first television stations to serve areas of the Eastern Kentucky Coalfield and mountainous region. Together the three broadcast relay stations would cover all over-the-air viewership in the region attracted by Kentucky Educational Television.

Hazard didn’t get its maiden commercial television channel until Oct 1969 when NBC linked WKYH hit the waves. The latter became CBS affiliate and changed its calls to WYMT in 19856 is the only full power commercial entity in this area. Cable and satellite televisions service is essential to require all other networks including NBC, The CW, ABC and Fox since Lexington’s commercial channels don not work with LP transmitters in the area. The area is filled with cable subscribers while some areas southwest of Hazard, however, are in close proximity with Knoxville, Tennessee area. The mountains put interference to the signal in Bristol, Tennessee-Virginia areas.  In 80s and 1994-1995, WKHA held at least 3 LP translators including W09AX, W67AN and W66AH which were airing over Ch 9, ch 67 and ch 66 respectively. WKHA recorded digital promotion on April 16, 2009 however, it still operates on its pre-transition UHF ch 16.
