About KXMC TVKXMC was North Dakota's first television station, initially broadcasting as KCJB-TV in April 1953. Chester Reiten of Minot and John Boler of Fargo acquired KBMB-TV in Bismarck (now KXMB) in 1958 and changed the station's call letters to the present KXMC-TV.
In 1971, Boler sold his stake in the KX stations to Reiten. In the 1990s, Reiten retired and passed his business on to his five children: Steve Reiten, Dave Reiten, Kathleen Reiten Hruby, Tim Reiten, and Melanie Reiten Shonkwiler. Tim was the company's president.
Before full-time ABC affiliate KMCY came on in 1986, the KX stations had a secondary affiliation with ABC. The stations were also temporarily linked with the NTA Film Network in the late 1950s.
