Q13 FOX ABOUT US
KCPQ/Q13 FOX is the Fox-affiliated television station serving the Seattle-Tacoma, Wash., market. Licensed to Tacoma, it broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on VHF channel 13 from a transmitter on Gold Mountain in Bremerton. Owned by the Tribune Company, KCPQ is sister to MyNetworkTV affiliate KZJO and the two stations share studios on the west shore of Lake Union in Seattle’s Westlake neighborhood.
KCPQ adopted its now-familiar Q13 branding in 1980. In 1986, KCPQ became one of the first affiliates of the Fox Broadcasting Company. As the Fox network’s viewership and ratings grew in the 1990s, KCPQ gained prominence as a major broadcaster in the local Seattle market.
The current news operation began January 19, 1998, when it launched a new 35-minute 10 p.m. program, which initially ran on Sunday-Thursday. KCPQ also launched a morning newscast on January 17, 2000, which eventually expanded to its current 5-1/2 hour telecast. On March 31, 2008, the station launched a 9 p.m. newscast on KZJO (formerly KMYQ). In June 2011, KCPQ added a 5 p.m. newscast. Washington’s Most Wanted, hosted by anchor David Rose, also airs on KCPQ and KZJO.
The Tribune Company acquired KCPQ in August 1998. Following the purchase of channel 13, Tribune merged KCPQ’s operations with those of KTWB-TV (channel 22, now KZJO). The two stations became co-owned in 1999, after the FCC approved same-market duopolies.
Since the Seattle Seahawks move to the NFC from the AFC in 2002, KCPQ airs the majority of Seahawks regular season games.
