KTWT in Twin Falls, ID, has announced that it will become a Fox-affiliate on July 1.
The station, currently a MyNetworkTV-affiliate, is owned by Neuhoff Communications. Twin Falls’ current Fox-affiliate, KXTF, announced last month that the station would part ways with Fox after the two parties could not come to an agreement on network compensation.
KTWT will debut three daily newscasts in high definition as part of the switch.
“It’s something we have been working on for some time. I’m glad it’s come to fruition,” vice president of Neuhoff Communications Chris Pruitt said. “We’ll be doing newscasts and a great syndicated lineup.”
