KCVB-CD is a low-power Class A television station in Logan, Utah, broadcasting locally in analog on VHF channel 3 as an affiliate of the ION Television network. Founded November 30, 1993, the station is owned by Cache Valley Broadcasting LLC of Logan.

History[edit]

KCVB-CD began on November 30, 1993 with the grant of an original construction permit to Valley Channel Broadcasting, Inc., later known as KUTN LLC and Cache Valley Broadcasting LLC. Originally built on VHF channel 12, it was given the callsign K12OT and was licensed on April 1, 1994. The station aired classified ads and some local programming. In November 1996, the station took the call letters KVWB-LP as a Network One affiliate [1], then changed to KUTN-LP in December 1997. When full-service television station KUTH (now KUTF) was granted a construction permit for channel 12 in October 1999, KUTN-LP was forced to find a new broadcast frequency. They applied to move to channel 3 in November 2000, and by July 2001, had applied for a license for their new facilities. At the same time, the station was again renamed, this time to KCVB-LP, which changed to KCVB-CA upon the station being granted a Class A license on August 28, 2001, along with the license to cover the move to channel 3. The station's call sign was changed again on January 12, 2012 to KCVB-CD.

Programming[edit]

KCVB-CD airs an abbreviated Ion Television schedule, with network shows only from 7 PM - 9 pm weekdays. The majority of the station's schedule is local programming, with infomercials overnight.

KCVB-CD shows hockey games from local Utah State University and basketball games from a local high school.
