History[edit]

The CW Network first appeared in Eureka on KUVU-TV as a part of the Eureka Broadcast Group, which owned KVIQ (CBS) and several other stations with affiliations to Fox, UPN, MyNetworkTV and others. KUVU was dissolved and Bonten Media Group launched KECA for the Eureka market.

On April 21, 2017, Sinclair Broadcast Group purchased KBVU as part of a four-station deal.[1] The sale was completed September 1.[2]
