KAYU (Fox 28) is the Fox television affiliate for Spokane, Washington, owned and operated by Mountain Broadcasting, LLC., a division of Northwest Broadcasting Company. The station, which signed on the air on October 31, 1982, offers a staple of diverse syndicated programming fare, including The Simpsons, Two and a Half Men, Perry Mason, TMZ on TV and According to Jim.

Cable Carriage

At midnight on 14 December 2006, KAYU pulled its own signal from the local (North Idaho) Time Warner Cable service. KAYU is looking for compensation and full carriage of its digital spectrum-issues with which Time Warner is at odds. Time Warner Cable operates three of the 90 cable headends serving the Spokane television market. The station has satisfactory arrangements with the remaining cable operators as well as satellite services Dish Network and DirecTV. KAYU-TV finally restored its channel to Time Warner Cable on February 1, 2008 after reaching a new five year deal that will last until February 1, 2013

Digital Television

The station's digital channel is multiplexed: Digital channels
Channel Programming

Post-analog shutdown

After the analog television shutdown and digital conversion, which is tentatively scheduled to take place on February 17, 2009 , KAYU-TV will move its digital broadcasts back to its present analog channel number, 28.


KAYU is rebroadcast on the following translator stations.


In 1991, KAYU began broadcasting a 10pm newscast produced by KREM. Dismal ratings caused KREM to cancel the newscast in 1993, upon which KHQ stepped in. Their news offering was canceled in 1994.

In 1999, KAYU produced an in-house 10pm newscast that ran until 2004. KXLY assisted in content and talent for a short time.

In 2004, KAYU went back to KHQ for news, resulting in FOX FIRST AT TEN.

In 2008, KAYU came back to Pullman. This is the first time there has been a Fox broadcast since 2007.

Given the affiliation with KHQ, FOX FIRST AT TEN began broadcasting in HD on August 8, 2008. It is broadcast in standard widescreen.
