About KRNV 4On September 30, 1962, KCRL-TV was established. It was the second television station in Northern Nevada, broadcasting an analog signal on VHF channel 4. On January 22, 1990, the call letters were changed to KRNV. Although it shared ABC with KOLO-TV until 1967, the station has always been an NBC affiliate.
On March 25, 1997, it signed on with KENV in Elko as a semi-satellite, offering Nevada-based programming to the Nevada side of the Salt Lake City, Utah market. In Winnemucca, the station operated another satellite, KWNV channel 7, which went dark on July 1, 2008.
KRNV became the first station in the market to broadcast its local newscasts in high definition on December 19, 2006. (although local PBS station KNPB became the first in Northern Nevada to offer digital broadcasts on September 29, 2000).
KRNV started the public affairs show To the Point with Anjeanette Damon on September 11, 2010. Brian Sandoval, the Republican Gubernatorial contender (and now former Governor), was Damon's first visitor. Rory Reid, the Democratic candidate for governor, was the featured guest on her second episode. On Saturdays at 4:30 p.m., To the Point aired. To the Point aired statewide on KRNV, KENV, and KSNV beginning on November 6, 2010, and ended on November 9, 2013.
