KEYC-TV is a dual affiliated CBS and FOX television station serving southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. KEYC-TV first signed on the air on October 5, 1960 as an NBC affiliate. KEYC switched affiliation to the CBS network in 1961. In 2007, KEYC added FOX 12 Mankato on channel 12-2. KEYC News 12 and FOX 12 Mankato are owned and operated by Gray Television.
In the fall of 2019, KEYC will be adding another station, KMNF-LD available over the air on channel 7. KMNF will be affiliated with NBC and CW and will compliment KEYC’s exisiting CBS & FOX programming. Using KMNF for the new station is a nod to our history, as the original call letters assigned to the station in 1957 were KMNF. The KMNF-TV call letters were changed to KEYC-TV in the summer of 1958.
