KSTU, Virtual Channel 13 (UHF Digital Channel 28), is a Fox-owned television station licensed to Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. The station is owned by E.W. Scripps. KSTU studios are located on West Amelia Earhart Drive in the northwestern part of Salt Lake City, and the transmitter is located on Farnsworth Peak in the Okvir Mountains, southwest of Salt Lake City. The station has a large network of broadcast broadcasts that extend their broadcast coverage throughout Utah, as well as parts of Nevada.
The radio station first appeared on the air on October 24, 1978, under the direction of Massachusetts Television in Springfield, which also owned the NBC WWLP affiliate in Springfield, Massachusetts, and the ABC WKEF affiliate in Dayton, Ohio. It was the first independent station in Utah, as well as the first new commercial station to sign up for Salt Lake City since KUTV (Channel 2) aired 24 years ago.
Salt Lake City waited a long time for an independent station compared to other cities of this size; he was big enough on paper to support him from the early 1960s. However, the Salt Lake City market is one of the largest and most mountainous markets in the country, covering the entire state of Utah and large chunks of Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming. Three commercial market stations, as well as members of PBS KUED and KBYU-TV, needed huge networks of low-power translators to cover this. In addition, at the time, the only distributions available were in the UHF band, and UHF stations never covered the mountainous area very well. The cost of creating a translator network, coupled with UHF restrictions, scared away most potential investors until the 1970s. However, by the mid-1970s, cable television — a prerequisite for acceptable television in much of Utah, even in the modern digital age — had gained enough market penetration to reduce the need for translators and make an independent station viable.
