KBOI-TV signed on November 26, 1953 as the Treasure Valley's second television station, after NBC affiliate KIDO-TV, channel 7 (now KTVB). It aired an analog signal on VHF channel 2, and was owned by Boise Valley Broadcasters along with KBOI radio (670 AM and 97.9 FM, now KQFC).

After KBOI radio was sold off to a separate entity, the television station modified its call letters slightly to KBCI-TV on February 1, 1975. At that time, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations required separately-owned TV and radio stations in the same market to have distinct base call signs, hence the change.

This logo resembles the one used by WCBS-TV in New York City from 1985 to 1993. Soon after the sale of the radio stations closed, Boise Valley Broadcasters decided to sell KBCI as well. A 1975 deal to sell the station to Donrey Media Group collapsed when the FCC deferred action on the deal due to regulatory issues surrounding the license renewal of Donrey's KORK-TV (later KVBC, now KSNV) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Instead, Boise Valley sold it to Eugene Television, owner of KVAL-TV in Eugene, Oregon, in 1976. The company, later known as Northwest Television, was acquired by Retlaw Enterprises, the company controlled by the family of Walt Disney, in 1996; three years later, Retlaw sold its television station group to Seattle-based Fisher Communications.

In 2010, Fisher renamed the station back to KBOI-TV after forming a news partnership with KBOI radio. Fisher Communications was acquired by the Sinclair Broadcast Group on April 10, 2013, with the transaction completed on August 8.
