The stations history traces back to 2008, when KGNS launched a 3rd digital subchannel, affiliated with Telemundo. The station went on the air on July 12, 2011 as K10QK-D, owned by SagamoreHill Broadcasting and simulcasting KGNS’s 3rd digital subchannel. It was sold to Gray Television on December 31, 2013, along with KGNS-TV. On October 4, 2018, the stations call sign was changed to KXNU-LD.
