History

KCFC signed on the air back on May 14, 1963. As an Indepedent, KCFC aired children's cartoons during the day, off-network syndication in the afternoon, and movies throughout the night. KCFC, during the 60s and early 70s was known as the LOL network due to them showing such film shorts from The Three Stooges, Our Gang, and cartoon shorts. Beginning in 1972, KCFC became the home station of the Denver Nuggets, showing all the games (preseason, regular season, and playoffs) and Denver Broncos preseason games and the coach's show. In 1980, there was a change in ownership when the Denver Broadcasting Company sold the station to Renaissance Broadcasitng. KCFC remained as an independent for a very long time, over 20 years up until 1986 when the newly formed FOX Network signed on the air. KCFC then switched affiliations from Independent to FOX and up until this date, has remained with FOX. In 1994, Renaissance sold the station to the FOX Television Group for $70 million. On April 30, 1999, Tribune bought KCFC from FOX Television Group and has owned it since.
