Logopedia InfoWhite.svg LOGO MISSING

Originally signed on the air on September 23, 1953 as KZTV, the second station in the state of Nevada, following KLAS-TV (also on VHF channel 8) in Las Vegas (which went on air two months earlier) and the first in northern Nevada. It had hoped to be the first in Nevada, however a carpenters' strike delayed sign-on. It carried programming from all four networks, but was a primary CBS affiliate. It was also originally founded and owned by Donald W. Reynolds, founder of the Donrey Media Group, which later became Stephens Media in 2002.

In 1956, Reynolds bought KOLO radio (AM 920, now KIHM) and changed channel 8's call letters to the present KOLO-TV. The KZTV call letters now reside on the CBS affiliate in Corpus Christi, Texas. Four years later, KOLO-AM-TV got sister stations in Las Vegas when it bought KORK-AM-FM-TV as part of Donrey's purchase of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
