KEUV-LP, UHF analog channel 31, is a low-powered Univision-affiliated television station licensed to Eureka, California, United States. Owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, it is a sister station to low-powered dual CW+/MyNetworkTV affiliate KECA-LD (channel 29) and Arcata-licensed ABC affiliate KAEF-TV (channel 23); Sinclair also operates Eureka-licensed Fox affiliate KBVU (channel 28) under a local marketing agreement (LMA) with owner Cunningham Broadcasting. However, Sinclair effectively owns KBVU as the majority of Cunningham's stock is owned by the family of deceased group founder Julian Smith.

The four stations share studios on Sixth Street in downtown Eureka; KEUV-LP's transmitter is located along Barry Road southeast of Eureka. Although identifying as a separate station in its own right, KEUV-LP is a semi-satellite of KUCO-LD (channel 27) in Chico, California. It simulcasts all Univision network programming as provided by its parent but airs separate commericial inserts and station identifications. Master control operations are based at the facilities of Redding ABC affiliate KRCR-TV (channel 7) on Auditorium Drive in Redding.

History[edit]
