Nightly news open at 9.

In May 1999, the station formed a news department and began airing Fox 12 News at 9 every night. The success of the show prompted the launch of a weekday morning show, Fox 12 This Morning, in April 2007. This is simulcasted on KTRV-DT2. On January 11, 2010, a 10 p.m. weeknight newscast, Fox 12 News Edge at 10, was added; it competes with newscasts on the big three stations.

KTRV currently airs its local news in 16:9 high definition widescreen.
