Idaho's Very Own 24/7 (formerly known as 24/7 NewsChannel, still known as 24/7 by some) is a local channel operated by Tegna, Inc. through KTVB in the Boise, Idaho Media market.


The channel primarily features simulcast and repeat broadcasts of KTVB's news programs. It also airs Boise State University athletic telecasts - including football and basketball. It airs shows like Inside Bronco Football on Wednesday nights and the Idaho Coaches Show on Thursday nights. Both shows are shown at 10:30 p.m. with repeats, shown the following day at 12:30 p.m.

Though originally billed as a 24-hour news channel, in recent years, it was leaning to more of a general entertainment-formatted station with the addition of syndicated programming (listed below) seen on 24/7:

In addition, the station also airs reruns of Judge Judy, first-run episodes are seen on 7.1. Also, the station serves as an alternate NBC station, airing programming when KTVB has other commitments.
