KQRY-LD history

KXUN's logo prior to January 1, 2013

At one point, KQRY-LP (as Univision affiliate KXUN-LP) aired local newscasts; they were produced out of Little Rock, Arkansas, with reports produced in Fort Smith. The newscasts were canceled in June 2008, after then-owner Equity Media Holdings instituted a companywide suspension of news programs.[3]

After failing to find a buyer at a bankruptcy auction,[4] KXUN was sold to Pinnacle Media in August 2009 (after having initially been included in Silver Point Finance's acquisition on June 2 of several Equity stations[5]), with Pinnacle assuming control under a local marketing agreement on August 5.[6]

KXUN was previously seen on KPBI's digital subchannel 34.2; after KPBI was sold to Local TV LLC and renamed KXNW, the KXUN simulcast was replaced with a simulcast of new sister station KFSM-TV. On February 5, 2019, KXUN-LD swapped call signs with KQRY-LD in Sallisaw, Oklahoma.


The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
