History

KCFG began with an original construction permit granted to KM Communications on February 10, 1997 to transmit from Mount Elden north of Flagstaff. Although KCFG was to be a full-service station, environmental restrictions at the transmitter site limited it to 1 kW ERP. The station went on-air December 20, 2000[1] and was licensed July 18, 2001. Immediately, KCFG applied to move their transmitter site to Mormon Mountain south of Flagstaff, intending to build both full 316 kW analog and 1000 kW digital facilities there. However, the construction permit wasn't granted until nearly two years later and the analog facilities went unbuilt.

KCFG had originally elected to remain on channel 32 after the DTV transition in February 2009, but has since applied to the Federal Communications Commission to move to digital channel VHF 9.[2]

Children's programming commercials records

The Federal Communications Commission proposed a $10,000 fine against KCFG in March 2006 because the station did not keep adequate records on commercial limits in children's TV programs. On 9 March 2007, the fine was reduced to $8,000 on the basis that the station had "a history of overall compliance with the Commission’s rules". The FCC eventually waived the fine on KCFG, but instead, KM was admonished "for its willful and repeated violation".[3]
