KGPX-TV, virtual and UHF digital channel 34, is an Ion Television owned-and-operated television station licensed to Spokane, Washington, United States and also serving Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The station is owned by Ion Media Networks. KGPX's studios are located on West Sprague Avenue in Spokane, and its transmitter is on Krell Hill southeast of Spokane.

HistoryEdit

On April 2, 1998, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted an original construction permit to Paxson Communications (the current Ion Media Networks) for a full-service television station serving Spokane. On May 15, 1998, the FCC issued the call letters KBEU. It was the fourth television station granted such a permit on channel 34 since 1984. The previous station, low-power K34DU, reportedly signed on in 1997 and is mistakenly thought to have been the same station as KGPX.

Two months after the original construction permit was granted, the station changed its call letters June 12, 1998 to KGPX to reflect the new Pax network (the predecessor to Ion Television), of which the station was to be a part. KGPX signed on the air August 1, 1999. KGPX's license was issued on June 30, 2000.
