History[edit]

KINY, Juneau's first television station, signed on the air on February 19, 1956, becoming KJUD in 1983. For many years, it was Juneau's only commercial station, and is still the only full-power commercial station in the area.

Initially, KJUD carried programming from ABC, NBC, and CBS for many years. During the late 1950s, the station was also briefly affiliated with the NTA Film Network.[2]

In 1995, the station became a part of the Alaska Superstation network, with KIMO (now KYUR) and KATN. In September 2006, KJUD began to show programming from The CW on its digital subchannel. The subchannel is known as Juneau CW. Smith Media sold KJUD and the remainder of the "ABC Alaska's Superstation" system to Vision Alaska LLC in 2010.[3] On September 1, 2011 KJUD will begin carrying programming from the Fox network on digital subchannel 8.3, the subchannel will become the first Fox affiliate in the Juneau market.[4]
