Public license information
KQRY-LD, virtual channel 36 (VHF digital channel 5), is a low-powered Univision-affiliated television station licensed to Fort Smith, Arkansas, United States.l, serving the Arkansas River Valley and Northwest Arkansas (including Fayetteville). Owned by Pinnacle Media LLC, it is a sister station to low-powered Class A Estrella TV affiliate KFDF-CD (channel 44). The two stations share studios on North College Avenue in Fayetteville; KQRY-LD's transmitter is located southwest of Winslow, Arkansas.
At one point, KQRY-LP (as KXUN-LP) aired local newscasts; they were produced out of Little Rock, Arkansas, with reports produced in Fort Smith. The newscasts were canceled in June 2008, after then-owner Equity Media Holdings instituted a companywide suspension of news programs.
After failing to find a buyer at a bankruptcy auction, KXUN was sold to Pinnacle Media in August 2009 (after having initially been included in Silver Point Finance's acquisition on June 2 of several Equity stations), with Pinnacle assuming control under a local marketing agreement on August 5.
KXUN was previously seen on KPBI's digital subchannel 34.2; after KPBI was sold to Local TV, LLC and renamed KXNW, the KXUN simulcast was replaced with a simulcast of new sister station KFSM-TV. On February 5, 2019, KXUN-LD swapped call signs with KQRY-LD in Sallisaw, Oklahoma.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
