KLSR-TV, a U.S. television station serving Eugene, Oregon, is an affiliate of the Fox network. Its transmitter is located in Eugene. It is owned by California Oregon Broadcasting, Inc. of Medford, Oregon.
KLSR signed on in 1991 and was Eugene's second UHF station to sign on the air. Before KLSR's arrival, Fox programming was piped in via Portland's Fox outlet--KPTV from 1986 to 1988 and KPDX from 1988 to 1991.
KVAL-TV produces a live 10 P.M. newscast for KLSR entitled Fox News @ 10, on weekdays and KVAL News @10 on Fox a repeat of the evening news on weekends. In September, 2010 KVAL started producing a live morning newscast for KLSR called "Fox News Mornings," which was later dropped and replaced by a replay of KVAL's 6am hour of morning news. KVAL's newscasts on KLSR started broadcasting in 16:9 widescreen in late September, 2010.

While the station has since caught up on its paperwork, the FCC has said that it is no excuse for not doing it in the first place.
