The station might look to pick up a MeTV affiliation instead…seems the viewers are liking that eyefull of “eye candy” alot better… As for FOX? They forgot who brought them to the dance 25 years ago. But then, when you”re near the top, you either don’t care about the fingers of those that you crushed climbing that ladder or you just too loopy in the noggin’ due to oxygen deprevation. You read it. You decide.

I’m thinking This TV on KXTF is just temporary. The station’s owners are very close to NBC, and Twin Falls is only served by a low-powered repeater of KTVB in Boise.

    As for their sister station in Idaho Falls, why don’t they just move Antenna TV from the subchannel of co-owned KPVI.

Unless Belo buys KXTF, it is never going to be the NBC affiliate. The station was purchased by the owners as part of a group that included KPVI in Pocatello and a satellite operation in Jackson, WY. All the stations were ABC affiliates at the time. When KPVI flipped to NBC in1996, the network would not allow the Twin Falls station to switch from ABC to NBC because Belo’s KTVB translator was already there. That’s why it became a FOX affiliate.
