History[edit] KAEF began broadcasting in 1987 under the call sign KREQ. Prior to 1987, ABC programming was limited to off-hours clearances on then-CBS affiliate KIEM-TV (channel 3) and then-NBC affiliate KVIQ (channel 17). In 1989, the station changed its call letters to KAEF-TV (Arcata Eureka Fortuna). In 2012, KAEF became a sister station to Fox affiliate KBVU (channel 28) in 2012, after Bonten (via KRCR-TV) took over the sales operation for KBVU in August and the entire station in December through a local marketing agreement with Esteem Broadcasting, which has functioned as a shell corporation for Bonten since 2008. Disputes with Dish Network[edit] Dish Network and KAEF, via KRCR, had been at odds for quite sometime regarding carriage of the station on the satellite system. KRCR was asking for reimbursement and made their feeling public. As a result, on December 8, 2013, Dish halted carrying KRCR on their system. General manager Andrew Stewart went to the internet at the station's website to share his frustrations with the viewers and called out Dish Network.[1] On January 12, 2014, DISH restored KRCR and KAEF and associated stations to its line-up. On January 17, 2017, KAEF was once again removed from Dish Network's lineup as part of a new dispute.[2] As of February 1, KAEF remains off of Dish. Sale to Sinclair[edit] On April 21, 2017, Sinclair Broadcast Group purchased KBVU as part of a four-station deal.[3] The sale was completed on September 1.[4]

Digital television[edit] Digital channels[edit] The station's digital signal is multiplexed: Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[5] 23.1 720p 16:9 KAEFDT Main KAEF-TV programming / ABC 23.2 480i 4:3 MeTV 23.3 Movies! On August 23, 2011, Disney-ABC Television Group announced that KAEF would carry Live Well Network as part of an affiliation agreement with Bonten Media Group; the network was added to a new third subchannel.[6] Live Well Network was replaced by Movies! on November 18, 2013.[7] Analog-to-digital conversion[edit] KAEF-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 23, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 22.[8] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 23.

Programming[edit] KAEF airs much of the same programming as KRCR, sometimes at different times. There are also some programs that only air on KAEF while some only air on KRCR, as the stations are in different media markets.[9][10]

News operation[edit] KAEF presently broadcasts 15 hours of newscasts each week (with 3 hours on weekdays). However, as 5 of those hours are locally produced from their Eureka studios, the morning newscast is simulcast from KRCR in Redding branded as "Daybreak." There are currently no newscasts on the weekends. Scott Rates is the news director and evening anchor at the station.

Translators[edit] KAEF has one translator station: Station City of license Channel Founded ERP HAAT Facility ID Transmitter Coordinates K50MR-D1 South Eureka/Loleta 50 (UHF)1 October 15, 1992 0.328 kW 141 m 8272 40°43′0.0″N 124°12′13.6″W / 40.716667°N 124.203778°W / 40.716667; -124.203778 (K50MR-D) 1.
