[edit] History

The station signed on-the-air October 18, 1981. When KTRV launched, it was the only Independent television station in the region. For the first six years, the channel regularly showed syndicated talk shows and children's programming in the day and movies in the evening. In 1987, it became a charter Fox affiliate and was the network's only charter affiliate in Idaho. [1] In May 1999, the station formed a news department and began airing the nightly Fox 12 News at 9. Its news success prompted the creation and launch of Fox 12 This Morning in April 2007.

On February 6, 2009, KTRV launched a MyNetworkTV and This TV affiliate on a new second digital subchanel known as "My Boise TV". On January 11, 2010, a weeknight broadcast called Fox 12 News Edge at 10 was added. KTRV-DT2 was added to the local Cable One system on January 11, 2010. The second digital subchannel simulcasts the weekday morning show.
