KEYE–TV originally signed on the air on December 4, 1983, as KBVO–TV, Austin's first independent station on UHF channel 42 and was originally owned-and-operated by the Austin Television Company, founded by Steve Beard, an Austin advertising executive, and a small group of investors.
Yellow version, only used alongside the Fox logo from 1992 to 1993.
On July 2, 1995, KBVO–TV switched its affiliation from Fox to CBS, and in the process, adopted the current callsign KEYE–TV. The Fox affiliation moved to former CBS affiliate KTBC as part of an agreement with New World Communications with the network.
