KRXI-TV is the Fox-affiliated television station for Northwestern Nevada's Truckee Meadows licensed to Reno. It broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 44 (virtual channel 11.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Peavine Peak. The station can also be seen on Charter channel 11 and in high definition on digital channel 781. Owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, KRXI operates MyNetworkTV affiliate KAME-TV, owned by Deerfield Media through a local marketing agreement (LMA). The two share studios on Brookside Court in Reno next to Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Syndicated programming on this station includes Two and a Half Men, The Simpsons, How I Met Your Mother, and TMZ on TV among others.
Digital television 
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|Channels||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|
|11.1||720p||16:9||KRXI-HD||Main KRXI-TV programming / Fox|
|11.2||480i||4:3||RTV||Retro Television Network|
The station began operations in 1996 taking Fox affiliation from KAME which was owned by a separate subsidiary of Cox Enterprises. KRXI-DT2 added RTV on January 7, 2008. The station was depicted in the episode "Drive" of The X-Files as part of a police chase that took place during the show. After the analog television shutdown and digital conversion on June 12, 2009, KRXI-DT remained on its pre-transition channel (44). However through PSIP, digital television receivers display its virtual channel as 11 (former analog location).
On July 20, 2012, one day after Cox purchased four television stations in Jacksonville, Florida and Tulsa, Oklahoma from Newport Television, Cox put KRXI-TV (along with the LMA for KAME-TV) and sister stations in Steubenville, Ohio, Johnstown, Pennsylvania and El Paso, Texas (all in markets that are smaller than Tulsa), plus several radio stations in medium to small markets, on the selling block. On February 25, 2013, Cox announced that it would sell the four television stations and the LMA for KAME to Sinclair Broadcast Group. The sale was approved by the FCC on April 29. The sale was finalized on May 2.
News operation 
KRXI simulcasts newscasts from sister station and fellow Fox affiliate KTVU in Oakland, California. This includes that outlet's entire weekday morning show (from 4:30 until 9), half-hour broadcast (weekdays at noon), and hour-long prime time news (every night at 10). All newscasts are presented in high definition from KTVU's studios at Jack London Square in Downtown Oakland. During the nightly news at 10, there are local weather cut-ins provided by AccuWeather meteorologists. These forecast segments, taped in advance, originate from headquarters on Science Park Road in State College, Pennsylvania. KAME in Reno repeats the 10 p.m. newscast every night at 11:30 p.m.
On October 4, 2010, KRXI partnered with the Independent News Network (INN) to produce a weeknight newscast known as Fox 11 News Eleven at 11. Promoted on-air as "Local News. Less Time.", it aired in an abbreviated format for fifteen minutes (including commercials). This was unlike traditional broadcasts seen in the time slot on Reno's big three stations. The newscast then changed to a half-hour format, in addition to altering the slogan to "Local News. Your World." The newscast is taped in advance from INN's facilities on Tremont Avenue in Davenport, Iowa. The news anchors, meteorologist, and sports anchor are provided by the centralized news operation and other personnel from INN can fill-in as needed.
KXRI maintains two local reporters based in Reno who contribute content to the show. This is the first time the station has ever had a news department of its own even though it is very small with a skeleton crew based out of the station's studios. Fox 11 News Eleven at 11 is streamed live on KRXI's website and there is also on demand video of the weeknight broadcasts.
With the sale of KRXI to Sinclair now complete, the future of the news partnerships with KTVU and INN remains undetermined.
