Public license information
KXOF-CD, virtual and UHF digital channel 31, is a low-powered, Class A Fox-affiliated television station licensed to Laredo, Texas, United States. Owned by Entravision Communications, it is a sister station to Univision affiliate KLDO-TV (channel 27) and Class A UniMás affiliate KETF-CD (channel 39). The three stations share studios on Bob Bullock Loop in Laredo; KXOF-CD's transmitter is located on Shea Street north of downtown. The station also runs late night programming from MyNetworkTV.
KXOF-CD and Harlingen-based KFXV (channel 60), which serves the Rio Grande Valley to the southeast, use the same newscast called Fox News South Texas which is divided into two segments; Laredo news (originating from KXOF) and Rio Grande Valley news (originating from KFXV).
The station began as K15EZ on channel 15 in 1997, moving to channel 25 in 1999 as K25GN. From 1999 to 2005, the station was KZLD-LP. Entravision bought the station in 2005, simultaneously switching the station to a Spanish-language Telefutura network as KETF-CA. In 2009, KETF-CA went off the air due to XHBR transmitting digitally on channel 25.1. In June of that year, KETF-CA applied for a permit to start transmitting digitally on channel 31.1. In January 2010, the permit was granted. The station changed its call sign to KETF-CD on January 3, 2011.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
