KAZO-LP, UHF analog channel 57, was a low-powered Azteca America-affiliated television station licensed to Omaha, Nebraska, United States. The station was owned by Pappas Telecasting. It was also formerly rebroadcast on KCAZ-LP channel 57 in Columbus, KAZJ-LP channel 46 in Norfolk, KWAZ-LP channel 56 in Lincoln and KAZS-LP channel 23 in South Sioux City. (By 2008 KWAZ-LP had moved to channel 35 and begun rebroadcasting KTVG instead of KAZO; this arrangement remained until January 2010 when KWAZ-LP was taken off the air.)

Prior to July 1, 2007, KAZO was affiliated with the Azteca America network. Before that, KAZO-LP was a repeater for KXVO. Pappas Telecasting terminated KAZO's affiliation agreement with Azteca America on July 1, 2007;[1] after that date, KAZO became a part of Pappas' independent Spanish language network, TuVision.[2]

In October 2008, Azteca America programming returned to Omaha and Sioux City on KXVO-DT2 15.2 and KMEG-DT2 14.2. Analog transmissions on KAZO-LP temporarily ceased around this time, though the analog channel 57 signal was again seen on the air in October 2009 rebroadcasting KXVO-DT2. KAZO-LP left the air for good later in fall 2009 and was no longer listed on KXVO-DT2 station ID screens. As late as 2008, KXVO-DT2 still identified the primary station on its ID screens as being KAZO-LP, though by 2009 it was instead identified locally as "MXVO".

The station was owned and operated by Pappas Telecasting, who at the time KAZO-LP signed off also owned KPTM, KPTH, and KHGI, as well as operated KMEG, KXVO and KFXL-TV through local marketing agreements.

On February 19, 2013, the FCC cancelled its license.[3]
