KTVU News started programming as an independent network on 3 March 1958. The station was originally owned and operated by San Francisco-Oakland Television Inc. KTVU Channel 2 was the fourth commercial TV service to hit the waves in the Bay Area market. In 1973, KTVU transferred its facilities to the current building at Sutro Tower. In 1960, Franscico-Oakland Television Inc. tried to sell KTVU 2 to NBC. However, due to some reason, the deal ultimately got canceled in 1961. Later, in July 1963, the Ingrim-Pabst-Pauley group managed to sell Channel 2 News Bay Area to the Miami Valley Broadcasting Company for 12.3 m dollars; the sale concluded in the October of that year.

KTVU kept on live streaming off-network syndicated programs, talk shows, religious content, and movies. Along with the significant amount of in-house produced newscasts, talk, sports, and public affairs shows. On 9 October 1986, KTVU started taking partial Fox programming; later, it eventually became a full-time Fox-affiliate station.

Fox declared they would trade their two networks, including WHBQ-TV and WFXT, to the Cox Media Group on 24 June 2014. In return, it would inherit KICU and KTVU. This trade between Cox and Fox made KTVU one of the Big four networks in the Bay Area to be owned-and-operated by its affiliate partners.
