History

KDVR first went on the air on August 10, 1983, as the first commercial television station in Denver to sign on since 1956, and was the first UHF television station in the state of Colorado. TV Guide had actually listed a channel 31 in its Denver edition prior to KDVR, but this was actually a translator of the network feed of the Spanish International Network (as Univision was then called). KDVR started off as a locally owned station, running a lineup of cartoons, old sitcoms, drama shows, movies, and religious programming. is the 222nd day of the year (223rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

When KWGN-TV turned down the Fox affiliation in 1986, the affiliation went to KDVR by default. The station became known as "Fox 31" in the late 1980s. It was subsequently acquired by Chase Broadcasting in 1990, Renaissance Broadcasting in 1992 (as part of a merger), and Fox in 1995, making it a network owned-and-operated station (O&O). After it became a Fox O&O, KDVR added first-run talk and reality shows, but it aired no news programming at first. At one point, Fox approached KWGN again with an affiliation, and planned to sell KDVR to Qwest Broadcasting. However, that plan did not materialize. KWGN-TV, channel two, is the CW Television Network affiliate in Denver, Colorado, USA. It broadcasts its analog signal on VHF channel 2 (55. ...

In October 1994, KDVR opened KFCT channel 22, to expand its coverage area north to the Wyoming border.


At the turn of the century, KDVR began making plans to produce a primetime newscast to compete with KWGN's 9 o'clock newcast with Ernie Bjorkman and Wendy Brockman. To prepare for this, KDVR built an entire new "news and technology center" in downtown Denver. Fox 31 News at 9 o'clock premiered on July 16, 2000, pulling sportscaster Ron Zappolo from KUSA-TV as anchor and Libby Weaver from WMAQ and Extra. The two have anchored the 9 o'clock newscast since its inception, and the newscast has constantly beat KWGN by a landslide in the ratings. KDVR also produces a 5 PM newscast, though only on Saturdays. KWGN is a television station on VHF Channel 2 (55. ...

In 2004, plans were made to bring the Good Day morning news format to KDVR. It premiered on March 22, 2004, to compete with KWGN's News2 This Morning (known then as WB2 Morning News.) Initially running from 5:30AM-8:00AM, it was later extended to 5:00AM-8:00AM, then 5:00AM-9:00AM, to now currently 5:00AM-10:00AM. Despite these efforts, KWGN's morning newscast still prevails in the ratings while KDVR's 9:00 newscast still dominates the primetime news.


KDVR is now using a new website myfoxcolorado.com as of September 19, 2006 as part of Fox O&O's upgrading to the myFox search engine template.
