A new, FOX-affiliated television station launched in St. Joseph at midyear — significantly altering the landscape of network broadcasting in the city.

The station replaced WDAF-FOX Kansas City on Channel 4 and 604 on Suddenlink. KNPN also provides 24/7 news and weather on Suddenlink Channels 3 & 603 and it is now over-the-air on channel 26.2, along with The CW on channels 6 & 606 on Suddenlink and 26.3 over-the-air and Telemundo (Spanish) on channel 602 on Suddenlink and channel 26.4 over-the-air.

    Still don't understand why we can't get KC Fox station? We have KQTV ABC and KMBC ABC.
