KCEC first went on the air on October 18, 1990. KCEC, along with Entravision's other TV and Radio stations in Denver have a unique reach. According to BizJournals.com, Entravision estimates that its TV stations reach about 92% of the Hispanic community in Denver, making it an ideal advertising opportunity for any company who would like to reach that segment of the population (33% of Denver).

KCEC's website went live in 2008 and is among the most popular Spanish language sites in the area. The website features live time news stories and local promotions. Starting in 2012 website visitors can also watch the local news broadcast live on the website.

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

KCEC shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 50, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 51.[2] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 50.
