K15CU-D, channel 15, is a Cozi TV owned-and-operated television station licensed to Salinas, California and serving the Monterey County. The station is owned by the NBC Owned Television Stations subsidiary of NBCUniversal. Its transmitter is located on Fremont Peak in the Gabilan Mountains above San Juan Bautista, California, over 3,100 feet above sea level.


The license was granted in 1989 (by Telemundo) as a translator of KSTS San Francisco.[1][2][3]

On February 8, 2010, the station went dark for technical reasons.[4] The station returned to the air on March 11, 2010. On March 10, 2011 the license was canceled by mistake of the FCC.[5] On March 11, 2010, NBC filed a notice announcing that returned to the air, however the notice was not filed.[6] On April 8, NBC filed an Engineering STA and a Petition for Reconsideration to restore the station.[6][7] The STA was granted on April 18, 2011.[8] On May 8, the Petition for Reconsideration was granted and the license was reinstated.[9]

On December 3, 2013 the FCC approved a request by NBCUniversal to convert the analog low-power station to digital, as a translator of KMUV-LP, the local Telemundo affiliate owned by the News-Press & Gazette Company.[10]

in 2014, the station became a primary affiliate of Cozi TV, listed in FCC records as a translator of NBC owned-and-operated KNTV, which airs Cozi TV on a subchannel.[11]
