History

The station began as K25DB, a construction permit granted in February 1992 to Terry Zick, for a low power operation to broadcast from Potosi Mountain, southwest of Las Vegas.[2] After several extensions of the construction permit, Zick sold the station in 1996 to King Kong Broadcasting, which had started the previous year with the goal of operating an Asian-language station.[3][4] The new owners immediately changed the station's call sign to KGNG-LP, and the following year, moved the station from Potosi Mountain to Black Mountain, and from channel 25 to channel 47.[5][6] Shortly thereafter, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted KGNG-LP its license to operate.[7]

The station filed for a digital companion channel construction permit in October 2006, to broadcast on UHF channel 48. Digital programming began December 31, 2008.
