KORO's logo prior to January 1, 2013

KORO was founded in 1977 as a locally owned, mostly independent station airing programs of the Spanish International Network, a forerunner of Univision. The original owners included lawyers, doctors, and other professionals.

The nearly 1,000-foot-tall (300 m) tower was shared by KORO and radio station KBCB (now KRYS-FM).

KORO's call letters are pronounced in station IDs as "K-Oro" (Ka-Oro).

The station's digital channel is multiplexed:
Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[2]
28.1 1080i 16:9 KORO-DT Main KORO programming / Univision
28.2 480i 4:3 UniMás
28.3 LATV

Analog-to-digital conversion

KORO shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 28, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 27.[3] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 28.
