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 --CygnusTMtalk

KSWT is a local station based in the Yuma, Arizona/El Centro, California market (licensed to Yuma) that broadcasts on digital channel 16 (displayed as virtual 13) as a CBS affiliate. Its subcarrier broadcasts on 16.2 that carried Universal Sports (formerly The CW, now on KECY-DT/channel 9.3). KSWT-DT2 stopped operating Universal Sports in 2011, it now operates as the area's Tuff TV affiliate.

The station signed on the air December 2, 1963 as Yuma's second television station and as a CBS affiliate. It became a NBC affiliate in 1968. When KSWT was affiliated with NBC it had the call letters KYEL-TV from 1978 to 1991. In 1988 it switched to ABC (which is now on KECY-DT/channel 9.2), then in 1995, amidst the big affiliation changes in the U.S., KSWT reverted back to CBS affiliation.
