Originally signed on the air on Friday, January 6, 1967 as KHTV, an independent television station on UHF channel 39 established by the WKY Television System, a subsidiary of Oklahoma City-based Oklahoma Publishing Company. The station began with a slide on Channel 39 announcing the new station, accompanied by an advertising campaign. The station began regular programming immediately after.

By coincidence, while the station was operated by Gaylord at the time, this logo was similar to the early logos used by Fox Television Stations' properties (which used Friz Quadrata), including rival station KRIV (UHF channel 26), at various timeframes from 1986 to 1994.
