History

KSTU began operation on October 9, 1978 as the first independent station in Utah, under the ownership of Massachusetts-based Springfield Television, who also owned NBC-affiliate WWLP in Springfield, Massachusetts and ABC-affiliate WKEF in Dayton, Ohio. The station originally transmitted on UHF channel 20 using a transmitter originally used for WWLP's partial satellite, WRLP in Greenfield, Massachusetts (which closed down shortly before KSTU's sign-on). KSTU's typical fare at the time was generally cartoons, off-network classic TV Sitcoms, old movies, and drama shows.

The Springfield Television group was sold to Adams Communications in 1984. KSTU became a Fox affiliate in the spring of 1987. The FCC soon dropped in an additional VHF allocation for Salt Lake City on channel 13, and Adams Communications acquired the construction permit for that allocation. KSTU then moved to channel 13, and returned the channel 20 license to the FCC. The station was known as "FOX13" by 1989, and was sold to Fox the next year, making it a Fox O&O. Unlike its rival stations, which have changed networks over the years, KSTU is the only VHF commercial station in Salt Lake City to remain affiliated with the same network since that network's inception; only KTVX, originally an NBC affiliate, has affiliated with ABC longer than KSTU has been a Fox affiliate, and, when Fox acquired KTVX's then-parent Chris-Craft, was eventually sold to Clear Channel. 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The station replaced most of the classic sitcoms on its lineup with talk shows in the mid-1990s. It launched a 9pm newscast in 1996, and added a morning newscast (Good Day Utah) a few years later, replacing morning cartoons. The station added more reality shows and court shows in 2002, once Fox dropped the weekday children's block nationally, then launched a midday newscast in 2005. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...

International Higher Education--26/7 (1023 words)
KSTU, while maintaining its technical and industry-related focus, has been more adventuresome by establishing a series of branches located in regional industries, thereby bringing education to the site and allowing all their advanced students to study on these sites and use more modern industrial equipment than the university could otherwise afford.
KSTU is developing an image and programs that cluster around “new technology education for the future.” TISBI is clearly the most entrepreneurial of all—finding or creating and filling market niches.
KSTU and TISBI are changing much more rapidly, and these changes are being made within strongly hierarchical organizations.
