KVYE ("Univisión 7") is a full-service television station in El Centro, California, broadcasting locally in digital on UHF channel 22. It is owned by Entravision and serves as the Univision affiliate for the Imperial Valley and the lower Colorado River valley, including Yuma, Arizona.


The station began as a construction permit, granted on August 3, 1989 to La Paz Wireless, and was given the call sign KLXO in 1991. La Paz had difficulty getting the station to air, allowing the construction permit to expire several times. In March 1994, the FCC dismissed the permit, but restored it five days later.[1][2] La Paz changed the station's call sign to KVYE on February 19, 1996 and in June, brought the station on air under a local marketing agreement with Entravision to operate the station as a Univision affiliate.[3] On March 15, 1998, Entravision bought La Paz Wireless outright and obtained the initial license for the station on November 26, 1999, more than ten years after the station began construction.[4]
