History

A construction permit to construct a low-power television station on UHF channel 26 in Casper was granted on June 15, 1995[6] and issued the call sign K26ES.[7] Original owner Charles W. Swaner sold K26ES to Wyomedia Corporation on September 15, 1997;[8] the new owners applied for a license to cover on October 29, 1997 and was granted it on January 28, 1998.[9] Initially, K26ES served as a translator of KLWY in Cheyenne; this brought Fox programming to Casper, along with a secondary affiliation with UPN. The station, by then referring to itself as "KWYF," began producing a 9 p.m. newscast on November 3, 2003.[10] On March 8, 2004, K26ES became a full-time UPN affiliate after Fox programming was moved to KFNB; for a time after this change, the station also carried some programming from Pax.[11] Wyomedia also transferred K26ES' newscast to KFNB.[11] When UPN and The WB closed to form The CW in 2006, K26ES became the new network's Casper affiliate.[12]

On March 27, 2012, Wyomedia was granted a construction permit[13] for a digital companion channel for K26ES to operate on channel 27;[14] this facility was issued the call sign K27LZ-D.[15] K27LZ-D filed for its license to cover on June 15, 2012[16] and was granted it on July 16;[17] on June 13, 2013, the call letters were changed to KWYF-LD.[15] The analog K26ES license remained active until September 12, 2014, when it was canceled by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).[18]

On January 26, 2015, KWYF became a MeTV affiliate.[19] In addition to airing programing from MeTV, it also airs programing from MyNetworkTV from 7pm-9pm weeknights.[20]

Wyomedia Corporation agreed to sell its stations, including KWYF-LD, to Legacy Broadcasting on February 8, 2018.[21] The sale was canceled on October 2, 2018.[22]
