There is also a small AM radio station in Sterling, Colorado named KSTC

KSTC channel 45 (44 digital) is a UHF television station serving the Twin Cities region Minnesota and western Wisconsin. It is owned by Hubbard Broadcasting Corporation, who originated in the Saint Paul station KSTP. Channel 45 is the only station in the Twin Cities with its own mascot, the 45 Guy, who is often seen at community events around the region.

Not affiliated with any broadcast network (an "independent"), the station runs a variety of syndicated programming mostly consisting of TV shows no longer being produced. One- and two-star movies are aired frequently. Some locally-produced material is aired each week as well. Today, this mostly comes from programs originally made for KSTP, such as Sports Wrap with Joe Schmidt and On the Road with Jason Davis.

However, in the few years it has been operating under the KSTC call letters, several other low-budget programs made specifically for KSTC have come and gone. These included a weekly horror movie broadcast under the name Horror Incorporated, hosted by Count Dracula (played by Jake Esau, the actual owner of the countdracula.com domain name). As of 2004, at least one KSTC-specific program was still airing. Nate on Drums, a comedy and variety show hosted by Nate Perbix, is reportedly broadcast to a network of stations across Minnesota.

Other material adding to the local flair over the years has included a number of different sporting events. These include Minnesota Timberwolves basketball, Saint Paul Saints baseball, boxing, and even Robot Wars-style combat between mechanical competitors.

FCC records indicate that a license for KVBM was granted in 1987, though the station apparently first took to the airwaves in 1994 under that name and was a Home Shopping Network outlet for many years. The station switched over to be KSTC on September 11, 2000 after an advertising campaign that confused many people in the area. Posters and broadcast ads featuring people of all ages used the phrase "I'm 45," but initially made no mention of the station.
