History[edit]

KBSC-LP was founded March 16, 1992 when the FCC granted a construction permit for station K49DH to Daniel C. McGrath. The translator went on the air November 1, 1992, broadcasting programming from HomeNet and Main Street TV.

On August 6, 1997, KBSC-LP was sold to Pacific Coast Communications, LLC. Network programming was dropped in favor of local programming.

On April 28, 1999, KBSC-LP was sold to Oregon Coast Television Network, Inc. In 2001, KBSC-LP affiliated with the America One network.
