History[edit]

On July 1, 2007, KSTV dropped its simulcast of KSAO-LP (affiliated with Jewelry Television at the time) and became an affiliate of the Spanish-language network Azteca América.[1] KSTV replaces former Azteca América affiliate KTNC-TV, which switched to the TuVision network on that date. In addition, a sale of KSTV to Bustos Media by its original owner, Cocola Broadcasting, was completed on September 13, 2007.[2] In September 2010, Bustos transferred most of its licenses to Adelante Media Group as part of a settlement with its lenders.[3]

On October 21, 2014, Adelante announced that it would be selling KSTV and its sister radio stations in Sacramento and Modesto to Lazer Broadcasting.[4] The sale was completed on December 31, 2014.
