- 1. The Broadcasting and Cable Yearbook says October 31, while the Television and Cable Factbook says November 1.
- 2. KFNE used the callsign KWRB-TV from its 1957 sign-on until 1980, then KTNW until 1984, then KFWY-TV until 1986. It aired programming from all three networks until 1984.
- 3. KFNE's current license dates to May 3, 1991.
- 4. KFNR used the callsign KRWY from April 16 to August 9, 1986.
- 5. KFNR's current license dates to March 8, 1991.
- All three stations (with KFNB as flagship) were affiliated with ABC from 1984 until 2004, when they became satellites of KLWY.
- KFNB and KFNE air separate identifications, logo bugs and commercial inserts from KLWY and KFNR. KLWY and KFNR identify as Fox 27 KLWY Cheyenne/Scottsbluff while KFNB and KFNE identify jointly as Wyoming's Fox TV KFNB Casper/Riverton.
KLWY signed on in 1988 as the second full-fledged commercial station in eastern Wyoming, and the first since KGWN-TV brought television to the region in 1954. It immediately joined Fox. Before KLWY hit the airwaves, Denver's KDVR served as eastern Wyoming's Fox affiliate via cable.
KLWY carried a secondary affiliation with UPN until the network closed in September 2006.
The station formerly had two other repeaters, K26ES in Casper, and K11RN in Douglas. Wyomedia converted these two stations into full-time UPN affiliates in 2004, then to CW affiliates after UPN's closure. K26ES is now KWYF-LD, an affiliate of MyNetworkTV and MeTV; its programming is simulcast in Cheyenne on the third subchannel of KLWY.
KLWY made the switch to digital on February 17, 2009.
The station does not have a website. KLWY does not air its own newscasts; the only newscast on the station is a rebroadcast of Good Morning Wyoming from KTWO-TV in Casper. However, KTWO's programming, including ABC programming and its newscasts, are simulcast on a digital subchannel of KLWY.
Wyomedia Corporation agreed to sell its stations to Legacy Broadcasting on February 8, 2018. The deal will create a duopoly between KFNB and KTWO-TV, which Legacy will concurrently acquire from Silverton Broadcasting Company; in its filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Legacy stated that the duopoly is permissible because KFNB is the fifth-ranked station in the Casper-Riverton market, trailing sister station KWYF-LD as well as KTWO, KCWY-DT, and KGWC-TV.
