KVSN-DT, virtual channel 48 (UHF digital channel 27), is a Univision-affiliated television station licensed to Pueblo, Colorado, United States and also serving Colorado Springs. Owned by Entravision Communications, it is a sister station to low-powered, Class A UniMás affiliate KGHB-CD (channel 27, also licensed to Pueblo), which is simulcast on KVSN's second digital subchannel. KVSN's transmitter is located on Cheyenne Mountain.
KVSN is a semi-satellite of Boulder-licensed KCEC (channel 14, owned by the Univision Local Media subsidiary of Univision Communications but operated by Entravision under a local marketing agreement), 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.
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. Its license was granted on June 5, 2009.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
