KHIZ-LD is a low-powered television station in Victorville, California, broadcasting locally in digital on channel 2 as a Los Angeles affiliate of ZUUS Country.

History[edit]

Signing on as K64AT, the station was owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network and broadcast programming from TBN for many years on channel 64. K64AT moved to channel 33 in 1987 and took on the call sign of K33BT. It later moved to channel 39 in 2003, with the call sign K39GY.

In 2007, TBN sold the station to Jeff Chang, a former California television weatherman and owner of several low-powered television stations (including sister station K33DK, now KVVB-LP, in Lucerne Valley).

On March 22, 2007, the station received a construction permit to flash-cut operations to digital television. Upon completion, it will broadcast at an effective radiated power of 15 kilowatts. On May 6, 2009, the station was switched to an analog translator of KHIZ-DT 44 in Barstow, California. It also airs English and Cantonese programming.

On July 19, 2012, the station moved to channel 2 and changed its call sign to K02RB-D and switched to an digital translator of KOCE-TV 50, a PBS member station in Huntington Beach in Orange County, California.

In 2013, K02RB-D, KILM and KVVB-LP are regular broadcasting stations based in the High Desert, which used to have KHIZ-TV known for local newscasts and independent commercial station programming.

On January 22, 2014, the station changed its call sign to the current KHIZ-LD and switched to an affiliate of Zuus Country.
