HistoryEdit

Originally, Christian Communications of Chicagoland (then-owners of WCFC-TV, now Ion Television owned-and-operated station WCPX-TV) owned KTLN outright, but it filed to sell the station to OTA Broadcasting, a company controlled by Michael Dell's MSD Capital, in June 2011. The sale was completed in October 6, 2011; as part of the deal, Christian Communications of Chicagoland continued to operate KTLN via a local marketing agreement.

Weigel Broadcasting agreed to acquire KTLN-TV and KAXT-CD, along with KVOS-TV and KFFV in Seattle, from OTA Broadcasting in a $23.2 million deal on October 18, 2017. The station was temporarily off the air as of June 2018.

The station sale to Weigel was completed on April 15, 2019.At midnight on April 17, KTLN returned on the air carrying high definition signals of Heroes & Icons on 68.1, and MeTV on 68.2. MeTV Bay Area is shared with CW owned-and-operated station KBCW (channel 44), which broadcasts the network on its third digital subchannel.
