KVSN-DT, virtual and UHF digital channel 48, is a Univision-affiliated television station licensed to Pueblo, Colorado, United States and also serving Colorado Springs. The station is owned by Entravision Communications. KVSN's transmitter is located on Cheyenne Mountain.

The station operates as a semi-satellite of Denver-licensed Univision affiliate KCEC, airing the same broadcast schedule as its parent station, but with separate commercials targeting the Colorado Springs–Pueblo market. Master control and most internal operations are based at KCEC's studios on Mile High Stadium West Circle in Denver.

History[edit]

KVSN's logo from March 2, 2009 through December 31, 2012

On April 10, 2007, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted a three-year construction permit to Entravision to build a new analog television station to serve the Pueblo–Colorado Springs market on channel 48. It was given the call sign KVSN. Shortly after the permit was granted, Entravision opted to build KVSN as a digital-only station and filed an application in April 2008. KVSN commenced operations under automatic Program Test Authority on March 2, 2009, replacing Class A LPTV station KGHB-CA.[1][2] Its license was granted on June 5, 2009.
