KQDK-CD, channel 39, is a low-power television station in Aurora, Colorado, serving as a satellite of KQCK. Founded October 30, 1990, the station is currently owned by Fusion Communications. Currently an affiliate of VasalloVision, it was previously, under Equity Media Holdings, an affiliate of the Retro Television Network.
On January 4, 2009, a contract conflict between Equity and Luken Communications, LLC (who had acquired RTN in June 2008) interrupted the programming on many RTN affiliates. As a result, Luken moved RTN operations to its headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and dropped all Equity-owned affiliates, including the then-KQDK-CA, immediately. RTN would eventually sign with KCDO-TV that May. KQDK then switched to AMGTV, and later to @SportsTV.
VasalloVision announced its affiliation with parent station KQCK in January 2010. KQDK-CA was acquired by Casa Media Partners in April 2012. The station switched to MundoFox on August 13, 2012. On February 12, 2013, the station flash cut to start broadcasting in digital, and changed its call sign to KQDK-CD.
