History

The Federal Communications Commission granted the construction permit for the station, as K33KN-D, on February 25, 2010. The station's call letters were changed to the current KPKN-LD on March 29, 2016. The station signed on in April 2016 as an affiliate of FremantleMedia’s Buzzr network. Buzzr was previously on KDKJ-LD4 until that point. Katz Broadcasting’s male-oriented Grit replaced Buzzr on KDKJ-LD4 upon KPKN’s sign on.[3][4]
