HistoryEdit

The station debuted on the air in August 1979 as KCIK-TV, a non-profit Christian programming outlet. KCIK was El Paso's 1st UHF TV station & was founded by the late Pete E. Meryl Warren III, who subsequently started KJLF-TV (now KTFN) ch. 65 in 1991. It was sold to new owners in 1982 & switched to commercial independent programming (while still airing some religious programming). By 1987 KCIK became a FOX affiliate & remains so to this day.

In August 1996, COX acquired what had become KFOX-TV & turned it into a major player in the El Paso TV market. In September 1997, KFOX debuted El Paso's 1st prime time newscast, KFOX News @ 9. Since then the station has won nearly 300 awards for journalistic excellence, including Emmy's, Edward R. Murrow's & Katie Awards.

In January 2004, KFOX launched it's 3-hour morning newscast, KFOX Morning News. Additionally, on October 8 2008, KFOX launched a 6 PM newscast.

KFOX will affiliate with RTN on a DT subchannel, owned by Equity Media Holdings Corporation, starting in 2008.
