History

The station began operations in 1996, taking the Fox affiliation from KAME channel 21, of which it is co-owned with by Cox Enterprises. Its transmitter is located in Reno. KRXI-TV's digital subchannel is affiliated with Retro Television Network and started on January 7, 2008.[1]

The station was depicted in the episode "Drive" of The X-Files as part of a police chase that took place during the show.
