History:
This station dates back to an original construction permit in 2012.  A license to cover was filed in June 2016 but it's unclear if the station was ever actually on the air.  Just a few months after filing, the station filed to go silent due to loss of tower site; this excuse was strung out until all the way into March 2020, when the station appears to have actually come on the air, rebroadcasting the Spanish Azteca America network, along with a few of its subchannels.  The station also added Get TV at this time.

In July 2021, it was discovered that the Twist network was added to the lineup, along with True Real on the .1 subchannel.

Azteca America shut down all programming at the end of 2022.  It was replaced on the .2 subchannel with Novelisima, and the .3 channel with Scripps News.

In March 2023, Scripps announced it was shutting down True Real TV and on most affiliates replacing it with Jewelry Television.
