History[edit]

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 its newscasts, are simulcast on a digital subchannel of KLWY.
