KVEW, digital channel 44, is the ABC affiliate television station for the Tri-Cities area of Washington. Licensed to Kennewick, it is a semi-satellite of KAPP in Yakima, airing its own newscasts and commercials. The two stations are owned by Morgan Murphy Media, who also owns KXLY-TV in Spokane, Washington.
The station began serving the Tri-Cities region in October 1970, a month after sister station KAPP signed on. Before KVEW's existence, KEPR-TV had carried ABC as a secondary affiliation until 1959; KNBS-TV operated briefly in nearby Walla Walla, Washington as an ABC affiliate in 1960; KNDU signed on in 1961 and became the area's primary ABC affiliate until 1965, when it switched its primary affiliation to NBC. Both KEPR-TV and KNDU shared ABC programming from that point until KVEW signed on and all ABC programming moved to KVEW.
It began airing Spokane's Me-TV affiliate KXMN-LD on a digital subchannel in September 2006. KVEW and sister station KAPP-TV were one of the remaining stations to sign-off every night, but that practice was discontinued in 2012 when KAPP and KVEW added ABC World News Now to the programming lineup.
Starting December 22, 2008, KVEW discontinued its 6 pm newscast in favor of a 6:30 broadcast. The 11pm newscast is 5 minutes long and weekend newscasts have been discontinued. In addition to this move, 17 employees from KVEW and KAPP, were laid off.
KVEW is rebroadcast on one station-owned translator in Walla Walla, Washington, K14HT channel 14. KVEW has a construction permit on K34JV-D of which will be a digital translator for KVEW once the construction permit for K34JV-D is completed.
