HistoryEdit

The station was founded on September 30, 1962 as KCRL-TV. It aired an analog signal on VHF channel 4 and was the second television station in Northern Nevada. The call letters becameKRNV on January 22, 1990. The channel has always been an NBC affiliate although it shared ABC with KOLO until 1967. On March 25, 1997, KENV signed-on as a semi-satellite of KRNV which extended its signal into Northeastern Nevada and remains the only full-powered television station in Elko. The station operated another satellite, KWNV channel 7, in Winnemucca but this went silent on July 1, 2008. KENV started broadcasting digital-only on March 26, 2009 after its analog transmitter broke down and forced a switch to digital.

After the analog television shutdown and digital conversion on June 12, KRNV remained on its pre-transition channel number, 7. However, through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers continue to display its virtual channel as 4. The signal for KRNV was relayed on translators K52DN in Carson City and K56BW in Tahoe City, California. These were necessary because the analog transmitter for KRNV was on Red Peak in Reno and operated with limited power to protect KRON in San Francisco. With the digital transmitter on Slide Mountain, the translators were no longer necessary and the licenses were canceled.

On December 19, 2006, KRNV began broadcasting its local newscasts in high definition; the first station in the market to do so.
