HistoryEdit

The station signed on the air on October 24, 1982.

The station was acquired by Mission Broadcasting after they bought KCIT and KCPN-LP from Wicks Broadcast Group in 1999. This station operates a shared services agreement with Nexstar Broadcasting's station, KAMR-TV.

On March 11, 2001 the station debuted a nightly 9PM newscast titled Fox14 News @ 9, produced by KAMR. For a time, the station also carried a weekday morning newscast.

On January 15, 2008 KCIT replaced the KAMR-produced newscast with its own one-hour newscast at 9PM. On Valentine's Day, KCIT began broadcasting This TV on digital subchannel 14.2.
