The station became a primary ABC affiliate by 1955, after KCRA-TV (channel 3) and KBET-TV (channel 10, now KXTV) signed on, respectively taking over NBC and CBS full-time; and dropped Du Mont after that network folded in 1956.
Although its fate was sealed when the first VHF stations signed on in the area, it managed to hang on until 1957.Though many shows from the 1980s and 1990s were featured on the schedule, a few talk shows, reality series and court shows also populated the lineup.In place of the station's own children's lineup after Captain Mitch's retirement, the station aired programming from Fox Kids until the network eliminated the weekday afternoon block in September 2002; the Saturday morning lineup (which by that time, became known as 4Kids TV) was retained as it began being programmed by 4Kids Entertainment that year until Fox dropped children's programming from its schedule in November 2008.KTXL, along with NBC affiliate KCRA-TV, are the only Sacramento television stations to have never changed their network affiliations, as they were unaffected by affiliation swaps in 1995 (when KXTV acquired the ABC affiliation from KOVR, which in turn, switched to CBS) and 1998 (when KMAX-TV – channel 31 – took UPN from KQCA – channel 58, which switched from UPN to The WB).KTXL was acquired by Tribune Broadcasting following the company's purchase of Renaissance Broadcasting in 1996.In 1963, KVUE attempted to file for a license renewal even though the station had been off the air for more than three years; Camellia City Telecasters, a group headed by Jack Matranga, former owner and co-founder of radio station KGMS (now KTKZ), filed an application with the FCC to build a station on channel 40, as a challenge to the KVUE renewal, and was granted the license in early 1965.
KTXL first signed on the air on October 26, 1968, operating as an independent station for nearly the first two decades of its existence. The station gained a huge advantage early on when its original owner won the local syndication rights to a massive number of movies, including classic and contemporary films.
The station operated for just under five months before also falling silent.
The KVUE call letters now reside on the ABC affiliate in Austin, Texas.
KTXL shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 40, on June 12, 2009, as part of the federally mandated transition from analog to digital television.
The station's digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 55, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition, to its analog-era UHF channel 40 for post-transition operations.
The following year, Camellia City Telecasters sold KTXL to Renaissance Broadcasting.
