Public license information
KUNW-CD (channel 2) is a low-power, Class A television station in Yakima, Washington, United States, affiliated with the Spanish-language Univision network. It is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group alongside CBS affiliate KIMA-TV (channel 29). Both stations share studios on Terrace Heights Boulevard in Yakima, while KUNW-CD's transmitter is located on Ahtanum Ridge.
On April 11, 2013, Fisher Communications announced that it would sell its properties, including KUNW and KIMA, to the Sinclair Broadcast Group. The deal was completed on August 8, 2013.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
|2.1||1080i||16:9||KUNW-CD||Main KUNW-CD programming / Univision|
KUNW's programming is also seen on two additional stations, both serving the Tri-Cities area of Richland, Pasco, and Kennewick:
|Station||City of license||Digital channel||Former callsigns||First air date||ERP|
|KVVK-CD||Kennewick||15 (UHF)||K60FX (1995–2001)
|March 15, 1996||15 kW|
|KORX-CD||Walla Walla||16 (UHF)||K16DD (1992–2001)
An additional station, KWWA-CA (channel 49, originally K49EI from 1996 to 2001 and KWWA-LP from 2001 to 2003), previously served Ellensburg. However, the station signed off April 17, 2008 after suffering antenna failure. Fisher opted to return the license to the FCC instead of repairing the antenna, and KWWA's license was canceled on June 4, 2008.
