KEYC-DT2 is a Fox-affiliated television station licensed to Mankato, Minnesota, United States and serving southwestern Minnesota. Known on-air as Fox Mankato, it is a second digital subchannel of CBS affiliate KEYC-TV (channel 12) that is owned by United Communications. Over the air, it broadcasts a 720p high definition digital signal on virtual and VHF channel 12.2 from a transmitter in Lewisville. KEYC-DT2's parent station has studios on Lookout Drive in North Mankato. On cable, the station can be seen on Charter Spectrum channel 19.
The Mankato market is within reach of some television stations based in the Twin Cities. Although Fox owned-and-operated station KMSP-TV has an over-the-air signal that does not reach Mankato proper, it is offered locally on Spectrum channel 9. Due to the cable presence of KMSP, KEYC-DT2 can invoke the Federal Communications Commission's network non-duplication rule resulting in Spectrum blacking out programming from the former during network shows. KMSP's newscasts and some of its syndicated programs can be seen, however.
With the 2007 launch of FOX Mankato came a new thirty-minute prime time show known as Fox Mankato News at 9. This weeknight-only program features music and graphics modified from use on Fox owned-and-operated stations and licensed to this station from News Corporation Digital Media.
