KTXL shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 40, on June 12, 2009, as part of the federally mandated transition from analog to digital television.
KTXL first signed on the air on October 26, 1968, operating as an independent station for nearly the first two decades of its existence. The station gained a huge advantage early on when its original owner won the local syndication rights to a massive number of movies, including classic and contemporary films.
This sometimes resulted in the staff forgetting to turn it on right at the beginning of a stereo program.
On October 9, 1986, KTXL became a charter affiliate of the upstart Fox network, and eventually started branding as "Fox 40" on-air.
At one point, it had one of the largest film libraries in the Sacramento area.
In addition, KTXL ventured into in-house productions, such as the children's program "Captain Mitch", horror movie host Bob Wilkins and Big Time Wrestling.
KTXL maintains studio facilities located on Fruitridge Road on the southern side of Sacramento, and its transmitter is located near Walnut Grove.
