|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
KCOP first opened as independent KMTR, although it carried some discarded programs from the Dumont network. It soon after changed calls to KLAC (the call is still used on local radio, sports talk format at 570 AM). In 1954, owner Copley Press changed calls to the current KCOP. In the early 60s after Chris-Craft took ownership, most of KCOP's morning programming consisted of instructional and classroom fare, segueing into more mainstream fare in the afternoon (including movies and a 90-minute cartoon block featuring Felix the Cat). In the 1980s, the station was the taping origination for The Joker's Wild and Tic Tac Dough.
In 1995, KCOP became a charter affiliate of the start-up network UPN. In 2001, Chris-Craft sold KCOP to Fox Television Stations. In 2006, UPN and the WB folded and merged into the CW, which made KTLA/channel 5 its Los Angeles affiliate. KCOP became an affiliate of MyNetworkTV, started up by Fox's parent company, News Corporation. KCOP's digital transmissions first began in 1997 on channel 66. It moved to its post-transition choice of 13 in 2009.
