KCPQ is an American local station. Licenced to Tacoma, Washington, the station broadcasts to Seattle (where its transmitter and studios are located) and the northwest Washington area on digital channel 13. Tribune Broadcasting owns the station, which is an affiliate of FOX.
In September 2014, it was announced that FOX wanted to acquire KCPQ from Tribune in exchange for WPWR-TV in Chicago, which would have made WPWR a sister station to Chicago CW affiliate WGN-TV. FOX announced the planned acquisition because the Seattle Seahawks, a member of the NFL's National Football Conference (which has a deal to air its games on FOX), airs the majority of its regular season games on KCPQ, and Seattle is the largest NFC market whose FOX affiliate is not directly owned by the network. FOX later announced the purchase of Bellingham station KBCB (currently an affiliate of religious network Sonlife Broadcasting Network) with plans to move the network's Seattle-area affiliation there, which would then have made KCPQ an independent station as it had been prior to joining FOX as one of its charter affiliates in 1986. On October 17, 2014, FOX announced that it signed KCPQ as its Seattle affiliate through July 2018.
