KERO-TV went on the air on September 26, 1953 as a primary NBC affiliate on channel 10. It was originally owned by Kern Country Broadcasters along with KERO radio (1230 AM, now KGEO). In 1955 both stations were broken up after KERO radio was sold. In 1957, Wrather-Alvarez Broadcasting, owner of KFMB-AM-TV in San Diego purchased KERO. In 1956, Wrather-Alvarez was broke up into two when Wrather kept KERO-TV and the San Diego stations into a newly renamed company known as Marietta Broadcasting. In 1959, Marietta merged with the Transcontinent Television Corporation.
