History

KWKT signed on the air on March 13, 1988, KYLE signed on as a satellite of KWKT on October 31, 1994. The two stations started as excluisive Fox affiliates, but in 2003 they added a secondary affiliation with The WB. KWKT and KYLE aired Fox as a primary affiliate from 7-9 PM, with WB shows airing from 1-3 AM. They also did not rebrand under such titles as "Fox's WB Waco" or "Fox 44, The WB". Following the merger of UPN and The WB into The CW in 2006, KWKT and KYLE added a seconadry affiliation with MyNetworkTV.Like The WB, MNTV airs from 1-3 and KWKT and KYLE did not rebrand as "My Fox 44 Waco/Brian" or a similar name.

Both stations aired Fox Kids from 2-4 PM from 1990 to 2001 (1994-2001 for KYLE), and then continued on Saturday mornings until 2002, when it was replaced by 4KidsTV. Syndicated shows replaced the weekday block until 2003, when Kids' WB moved into the time slot, and was also aired on Sunday mornings. This block lasted until 2006 and was replaced by Daytime WB. As the two were not chosen to join The CW, Kids' WB was dropped in 2006. 4KidsTV ended in December 2008, and thus the 2 no longer air Children's programming of any kind.
