About KFOX News El Paso
On August 1979, the channel first signed on the air as KCIK-TV. At that time the abbreviation stood for “Christ Is King”. Originally, KFOX operated as a nonprofit Christian-oriented religious independent channel. Moreover, this was the first UHF television channel to sign on in the El Paso market. Not only this, KFOX was also the first new commercial channel to sign on in El Paso. It happened because KVIA-TV hit the airwaves 23 years earlier.
KFOX Limited Audience
El Paso itself had over 400,000 people at the time channel 14 signed on. Likewise, the El Paso market has always been a small to medium-sized market. This is because of the surrounding urban and rural areas.

Inauguration of the Studio
In 1988, KCIK was purchased by New York entrepreneur Jack Mulderrig Sr. He invested in the construction of a new studio facility. It was located at 6004 North Mesa Street in the northwestern part of the city. The office was inaugurated on June 1994. On January 3, the channel changed its call letters to KFOX-TV. This alternation was made six months before the opening of the new studios. The call letters were changed to reflect its network affiliation. Moreover, it was marked as one of Fox’s 10 strongest affiliates.
