Beginning July 1, Fisher Communications’ KXPI will become the Fox-affiliate in the Idaho Falls market. KXPI replaces KFXP as the market’s Fox-affiliate.

The station is currently a MyNetworkTV-affiliate. Under the new agreement, the station will run MyNetworkTV programming beginning at 10 p.m.

“We’re delighted to have KXPI join the FOX family,” Jon Hookstratten, Fox EVP for network distribution, said in a statement. “Mark Danielson and the team at Fisher Communications are top-notch and we’re confident they will do an outstanding job of representing Fox in the Idaho Falls community.”

Fisher Communications also operates KIDK, the CBS-affiliate in Idaho Falls, which is locally managed by NPG of Idaho. NPG also operates KIFI, the ABC-affiliate in the market.
