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.

History[edit]

Logo as an Azteca América affiliate, used until 2019.

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.[2] The deal was completed on December 30, 2011.[3] 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.[citation needed]

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.
