KMSG-LD, virtual channel 53 (UHF digital channel 29), is a low-powered dual MyNetworkTV/Azteca America-affiliated television station licensed to Fresno, California, United States. Owned by Cocola Broadcasting, it is sister to Merced-licensed Estrella TV affiliate KGMC (channel 43) and seven other low-power stations. KMSG-LD's transmitter is located on Bear Mountain, near Meadow Lakes, California.

KMSG's Azteca America feed is rebroadcast on KVVG-LD channel 54.1 in Visalia.

History[]

KVVG-LD started out as KVVG-LP, an affiliate of Almavision for the Visalia area in early 2005. Formerly on channel 31, it later moved to channel 54. KVVG-LP changed to Tvida Vision in mid-2005. As of 2011, the station converted to a digital signal, as KVVG-LD.

The KVVG calls were originally used on a DuMont affiliate on channel 27 in Tulare in the 1950s. The KMSG calls were originally used on what is now CW affiliate KFRE-TV (channel 59) from its sign-on from 1985 to 2001.

Until mid-2006, KMSG's programming was also seen on KPMC-LP (channel 42, now KZKC-LD) in Bakersfield, which was sold to McGraw-Hill, becoming a standalone Azteca América affiliate and later a translator of ABC affiliate KERO-TV (channel 23).
