History

KOCB began in 1979 as KGMC, an independent station. The station featured cartoons, classic sitcoms, westerns, dramas, religious shows, and some old movies. KGMC signed on shortly before competitor KOKH 25. The station was owned by General Media. An independent station is a television station that is not affiliated with any network. ...

In 1983 KGMC was sold to Seraphim Media, with the format remaining unchanged. In 1987 Pappas Telecasting Companies sought to buy both KGMC and KOKH as well as then-Fox affiliate KAUT. KOKH was to combine its own assets with KGMC and KAUT and carry the Fox affiliation. KGMC was to become a Home Shopping Network affiliate 18 hours a day along with 6 hours a day of religious shows. KAUT was to be sold to OETA and become a second public television station. In 1988 the sale was canceled, but KGMC would be sold to Maddox Broadcasting in 1989. At that point their call letters became KOCB. Pappas Telecasting Companies, is a diversely organized broadcasting company headquartered in Visalia, California. ...

In 1993 KOCB was sold again, this time to Superior Broadcasting. They continued with a general entertainment format while becoming a UPN affiliate in January 1995, with the name UPN 34. Being that UPN only had a few nights of shows per week KOCB along with other UPN Stations were basically independent. In 1996 KOCB began a local marketing agreement with KOKH but ran separate programming. After three years as a UPN station, KOCB became a WB affiliate on January 25, 1998.
