History[edit]

An original construction permit was granted to Central States Communications on November 30, 1989 to build a low-power television station K18DD on channel 18 to serve Camp Verde. The station was licensed on July 30, 1992 as a low-power station and was upgraded to Class A status in 2002. The station surrendered its class A license and reverted to a standard low-power license on December 18, 2014, and was then licensed for digital operation on February 3, 2015.
