The station signed on in 2006 as a Retro Television Network affiliate; at that time, Equity owned the network. However, on January 4, 2009, a contract conflict between Equity and Luken Communications, LLC (who had acquired RTN in June 2008) interrupted the programming on many RTN affiliates. As a result, Luken moved RTN operations to its headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and dropped all Equity-owned affiliates, including KTUW, immediately; RTN would return to Scottsbluff via a subchannel of KDUH-TV that summer (by which time the network had been rebranded RTV). KTUW's replacement programming is unknown.
KTUW held a construction permit to move to digital channel 17 at increased power; this would not be built, as the station's license was canceled on June 8, 2009.
