History

The Station first sign on air on March 22 1996; originally operating as an independent station, it was originally owned by Sainte Partners II, LP. During its first two years on air, KNSO aired religious programming in morning hours and Asian language programming in afternoons, as well as programming from California Music Channel. These programs were largely simulcast via San Francisco independent station KTSF-TV. In July 1998, KNSO entered into a local marketing agreement with Pappas Telecasting Companies, then-owner of Fox affiliate KMPH-TV; Pappas then signed an affiliation agreement to make KNSO market's WB affiliate, taking affiliation from Clovis-base KGMC. On January 1 2001, KNSO swapped affiliations with KFRE-TV, becoming a Telemundo affiliate; shortly beforehand, Pappas entered into LMA with KFRE, resulting in WB affiliation being relocated to KFRE. Station became Telemundo's own-and-operate station, when the network's then-new parent company NBC bought the station in May 2003. In March 2004, KNSO vacated its McKinley Road studios and moved to a new facility in North Fresno at 30 River Park Place. The Station also implements an advanced operational environment, making KNSO one of most advanced television stations in the country. This experimental operation system allows for limited intervention master control center, which involves a highly automated system of operation. Station automation systems are almost completely self-reliant and provide little to no assistance by station personnel in running on-air switching, monitoring and logging. This system utilizes Florical Airboss, centralized sales and traffic systems, and various Grass Valley Group broadcast systems, including Profile XP and Concerto. This experimental operation system has proven successful, and has now been implemented in other station operation control centers. ZGS Communications take over operations of KNSO on May 1 2009, although NBC retain licenses for both stations. Serestar Communications assumed operations of the station on May 1 2014, under a joint sales and time brokerage agreement that was to run through December 31 2020; NBCUniversal retained the KNSO license. On December 6 2018, it was announced that NBCUniversal would terminate its local marketing agreement with Serestar in early 2019, making KNSO full Telemundo O & O for the first time since 2009. This was in conjunction with NBCUniversal's purchase of Serestar-own Telemundo affiliates KTMW and KULX-CD in Salt Lake City and KCSO-LD in Sacramento. The Transaction was completed and LMA terminated on March 5 2019.
