Public license information

KVYE, virtual channel 7 (UHF digital channel 22), is a Univision-affiliated television station licensed to El Centro, California, United States and also serving Yuma, Arizona and Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. The station is owned by Entravision Communications, which also operates Calipatria, California-licensed UniMás affiliate KAJB (channel 54) under a joint sales agreement (JSA) with owner Calipatria Broadcasting Company. The two stations share studios on North Imperial Avenue in El Centro and transmitter facilities atop Black Mountain.[1]


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted an original construction permit on August 3, 1989, to build a television station licensed in El Centro.[2] Before its license grant, the permit was extended four times[3][4][5][6] and modified twice.[7][8] On March 23, 1994, the FCC canceled the permit, but restored it five days later.[9]

The station made its debut in June 1996; however, the station maintained its construction permit status.[10][11]

On March 15, 1998, Entravision Communications (which operated KVYE under a local marketing agreement) bought station licensee La Paz Wireless Corporation for $700.000.[12] Entravision obtained the initial license for the station on November 26, 1999.[13]

On November 8, 2002, the FCC granted a permit to construct the station's digital facilities (requested in 1999).[14] The station completed construction of its full-power digital facilities in June 2007, and was granted a license on January 29, 2010.[15]

In February 2017, KVYE began to carry Azteca América on 7.2; prior to this affiliation, Azteca América was seen in the market solely through carriage of the network's national feed on Time Warner Cable.[16]

On March 12, 2018, the digital multicast networks Comet and Charge! began broadcasting on digital subchannels 7.3 and 7.4, respectively.

In 2019, KVYE added a fifth digital subchannel, affiliated with Court TV.

Analog-to-digital conversion

KVYE shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 7, on June 12, 2009,[18] the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 22.[19] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former VHF analog channel 7.

News operation

KVYE presently broadcasts five hours of locally produced newscasts each week (with one hour each weekday); the station does not carry newscasts on Saturdays or Sundays.

The newscast debuted on January 26, 2015.[20]
