Public license information
KZKC-LD, virtual and UHF digital channel 28, is a low-powered television station licensed to Bakersfield, California, United States. It is a translator of ABC affiliate KERO-TV (channel 23) which is owned by the E. W. Scripps Company. KZKC-LD's transmitter is located atop Breckenridge Mountain; its parent station maintains studios on 21st Street in Downtown Bakersfield.
The station was originally owned by Cocola Broadcasting, where it served as a repeater for Fresno's KMSG-LP, an Azteca América affiliate; McGraw-Hill bought it in 2006 and made it a stand-alone station. McGraw-Hill announced on October 3, 2011 that it would sell KZKC, along with its other television stations, to the E. W. Scripps Company as part of its exit from broadcasting. The deal was completed on December 30, 2011. KZKC-LP became an owned-and-operated station of the relaunched Court TV during 2019. Azteca América programming has moved to KBBV-CD, and is also available via its national feed on satellite and IPTV providers.
KZKC-LP was converted to digital in 2020 as a translator of KERO-TV, allowing homes with issues receiving KERO-TV's VHF signal or only a UHF antenna to receive KERO-TV in some form.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|
|28.1||720p||16:9||KZKC-HD||Simulcast of KERO-TV / ABC|
|28.2||CourtTV||Simulcast of KERO-DT2 / Court TV|
