History[edit]

KHDF-CD began with an original construction permit issued on June 15, 1990 to "Hey Buddy" ... Broadcasting Company. The station was to be built on UHF channel 19 and was assigned the callsign K19CS. It was licensed on March 16, 1992 to Charles K. "Harry" Tootle. Programming mostly consisted of locally produced talk shows and seminars on videotape from the Conservative "Patriot" community, which were also shown on Tootle's other licensed station, K17CT. Thomas C. Griner purchased the station and gave it call letters KKJK-LP in November 1997. A new transmission system was constructed at a tower site in the northwest corner of the Las Vegas valley. Todd Communications installed the antenna and the station was engineered and run by Dan Nezgoda. In May 2000, Griner sold the station to Amanda Orrick Mintz. The station upgraded to a Class A license on December 21, 2001 and changed its call letters to KHDF-CA in July 2002. Una Vez Mas LLC acquired the station in April 2004.

During 2011, the station converted to a digital signal, as well as changed its calls to KHDF-CD.

Newscast[edit]
