The station signed on in April 2002 as KBNM under the ownership of Sunbelt Communications Company. The station displaced K07HC, a translator for CBS affiliate KTVQ in Billings, Montana, to channel 9 as K09XK; in its earliest months, KBNM served as a temporary satellite of KTVQ, but with plans to become an NBC affiliate. After joining NBC, the station, which was renamed KSWY on November 1, 2002, served as a pass-through for NBC programming, with virtually no local content (including commercials); this ended on September 1, 2003, at which point it became a satellite of sister station KCWY in Casper, Wyoming (which joined NBC that same day).
In 2008, Sunbelt exchanged KSWY to Western Family Television in exchange for KJCW-LP (channel 29), which had previously been listed as a JCTV affiliate. When the sale closed on May 9, 2009, KSWY went silent due to the loss of its tower site; its programming then moved to channel 29, renamed KSWY-LP. The KSWY callsign remained on channel 7 as well until May 4, 2010, when it took the KJCW callsign abandoned by KSWY-LP a year prior. The station proposed to return to the air (with the JCTV programming previously seen on KJCW-LP/KSWY-LP) from a temporary site as it continued to seek a permanent transmitter location. On December 23, 2010, the FCC canceled its license and deleted the KJCW call sign; it is unknown whether the licensee or the FCC initiated the action. As an affiliate of KTVQ, the station's transmitter was co-located with KPRQ 88.1 FM just off Red Grade Road southwest of Sheridan. KTVQ now operates a translator on channel 9 (K09XK-D) from the same site.
