KEMO-TV is an Azteca América affiliated television station licensed to Santa Rosa, California and covering the San Francisco Bay Area. The station broadcasts over-the-air on digital UHF channel 32.1 (virtual channel 50.1) from atop Mount St. Helena. KEMO-TV can also be seen on Comcast Cable channel 31. Prior to October 2011, KEMO-TV operated under the callsign of KFTY, before its sale to its current owner, Una Vez Más Holdings.
Until September 29, 2011 as KFTY, featured programming from Me-TV and syndicated programming, as well as locally-oriented programming, including the weekday morning (6-10AM) talk show Armstrong & Getty (a radio simulcast from KNEW), "Headlines and Weather on the Hour" throughout the day (in addition to news every half-hour during Armstrong & Getty anchored by Elisha Rivers), the Sunday evening Sports Show, the community affairs program Your Turn, and the "go-green" program TV 50 Marketplace hosted by Nazy Javid.
KFTY was previously owned by the television arm of Clear Channel Communications, who, after being bought out by private equity firms, announced the sale of KFTY and its other TV stations on November 16, 2006. On April 20, 2007, Clear Channel entered into an agreement to sell its entire television stations group to Providence Equity Partners's Newport Television. Providence Equity initially announced that it would not keep KFTY or KVOS-TV in Bellingham, Washington; instead, those stations were to be resold to LK Station Group. Because LK could not obtain financing for the purchase, KFTY was instead sold to High Plains Broadcasting, Inc. (Providence could not keep KFTY as it holds a 19 percent ownership stake in Univision Communications, which already owns two stations in the Bay Area market, KDTV-DT and KFSF-DT). Newport Television does manage KFTY through a joint sales agreement (JSA), though High Plains now controls KFTY's programming.
In addition to the local news breaks that currently air, KFTY's news history includes the production of two half-hour local newscasts in the late 1980s, airing at 7:00PM and 10PM (the slogan: "We do it twice, every night.") KFTY cancelled its evening newscasts on January 26, 2007, citing insufficient revenue to support their continuation. Management denied the move was related to Clear Channel's intent to divest the property, despite a similar incident at another Clear Channel station (Utica, New York's WUTR) in which all local newscasts were cancelled in August 2003, followed in early 2004 with the sale of that station.
KFTY was previously an independent station until joining the classic television network Me-TV on April 25, 2011, as part of an affiliation agreement with Me-TV and Newport-owned or -operated stations. Branded as "Me-TV Bay Area," KFTY aired Me-TV programming predominately during the 10 a.m.-11 p.m. weekday time block.
On July 28, 2011 High Plains Broadcasting announced plans to sell KFTY to Una Vez Más Holdings, LLC, with plans to affiliate KFTY with the Spanish-language Azteca América network; The new owners had the station's callsign changed to KEMO-TV, which is the former callsign of KOFY-TV. On September 29, 2011, KFTY's affiliation with Me-TV was discontinued and programming on Channel 50 was switched to Azteca América, mirroring that of Azteca América on KOFY 20.4, Until this ended shortly afterward, when KOFY discontinued the Azteca América feed, since this point, the station became an standalone and only one Azteca América affiliate. On October 17, 2011, it was announced that KOFY would pick up the Me-TV affiliation on their subchannel 20.2.
