 WVFX is the FOX affiliate that serves the Vice City Area. It broadcasts on channel 5 via low-powered analog TV. The station recently upgraded to a digital signal on March 30, 2015. Syndicated programming include: The Jerry Springer Show, The Steve Wilkos Show, Family Feud, MEGA Guts, Judge Judy, and People's Court. The station was owned by Krueger Broadcasting and was part of a duopoly with ABC affiliate KVIC. As of November 6, 2015. WVFX was sold to RainbowDash72 and is now a duopoly with Rainbow Dash Network station KRVC.

History

KVFX-LP signed on as K05GQ on March 30, 2001. Originally planned to sign on as an independent station but when KCTY's contract with FOX was expiring. K05GQ quickly snatched the affiliation before FOX went to someone else. As a result, K05GQ signed on as a FOX affiliate while KCTY became an independent station. For the first couple years, K05GQ was not a competition to the other stations in the area. Due to its very low powered signal and its location in Vice City (near the Ocean Beach area) people living near or in Downtown Vice City couldn't receive K05GQ or the signal was marginal at best. K05GQ was nearing bankruptcy, advertisers wouldn't advertise on K05GQ because of its poor signal, the 10PM newscast was canceled due to low ratings, FOX threatened to return the affiliation to KCTY, most of K05GQ's staff were laid off but some stayed with them hoping the station could pull through. However, there was some hope to the station. The FCC approved the station's request to boost its signal and by January 1, 2004 at 6:20 PM, K05CQ became KVFX-LP. The signal around Downtown Vice City greatly improved. Due to the increased power, WVFX once again planned a 10PM newscast produced by KVIC called "FOX 5 Action News at 10". The 10PM newscast was a huge success. At one point it was ahead of KVCC a full powered station. As soon as WVFX- was bought by RainbowDash72, RainbowDash72 stopped airing newscasts on WVFX in favor of keeping the 10PM news on KRVC.
