Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - Neuhoff Communications and FOX Broadcasting Company have signed an agreement to launch a new FOX affiliate in Twin Falls.
The station will be known as FOX 14 and will broadcast in high–definition over KTWT–LP, Channel 14.

"It’s something we have been working on for some time. I'm glad it's come to fruition. We're going to keep working to be ready to go on July 1st and we will be putting in a new transmitter. We will be broadcasting on channel 14 and it will be in HD. We'll be doing newscasts and a great syndicated lineup,” said Chris Pruitt, Vice President of Neuhoff Communications.
FOX 14 will replace Intermountain West Communications Company KXTF Channel 35 whose affiliation agreement with FOX expires on June 30th.
