History[edit]

KLEW-TV signed on the air December 7, 1955. Fisher Communications bought out KLEW-TV in 1999 when it merged with Retlaw Broadcasting. KLEW-TV was owned by Noel Broadcasting before Retlaw Broadcasting owned KLEW-TV. On April 11, 2013, Fisher announced that it would sell its properties, including KLEW-TV, to the Sinclair Broadcast Group.[1] The deal was completed on August 8, 2013.[2]
