KZKC-LP, UHF analog channel 42, is a low-power Azteca América-affiliated television station licensed to Bakersfield, California, United States. Owned by the E. W. Scripps Company, it is a sister station to ABC affiliate KERO-TV (channel 23). The two stations share studios on 21st Street in downtown Bakersfield; KZKC's transmitter is located atop Mount Adelaide.
Since KZKC does not broadcast a digital signal of its own, it is simulcast in high definition on KERO's second digital subchannel (VHF channel 10.2 or virtual channel 23.2 via PSIP) from a transmitter atop Breckenridge Mountain.
The station was originally owned by Cocola Broadcasting, where it served as a repeater for Fresno's KMSG-LP; McGraw-Hill bought it in 2006. McGraw-Hill announced on October 3, 2011 that it would sell KZKC, along with its other television stations, to the E. W. Scripps Company as part of its exit from broadcasting. The deal was completed on December 30, 2011.
