KBRO-LD is a low-power television station in Cheyenne, Wyoming, carrying Spanish-language programming from Almavision. The station is owned and operated by Echonet Corporation.

History[edit]

In the 1980s, the then-K49AY carried a combination of Home Shopping Network and Spanish-language programming. In 2000 (ca), it repeated the signal of Denver ABC affiliate, KMGH.

K49AY was shut down on October 22, 2002, following the FCC fining the station for $10,000 for being on the air with an improper license, following its renewal. The fine was lowered to $4000, after it convinced the FCC that it was a clerical error on their part.[1][2]

K49AY remerged in 2005, carrying Almavision programming.

The station was licensed for digital operation on June 24, 2015, changing the call sign to K16LE-D. On July 17, 2015, the call letters were changed to KBRO-LD.[3] Echonet Corporation had earlier held a construction permit for a digital low power station (K18II-D) in Cheyenne that would have broadcast on UHF channel 18.[4]
