  • KKEY-LP is a low-power television station in Bakersfield, California, that transmits over digital channel 13, it is also a subchannel of KGET. The station is owned by Nexstar Broadcasting Group and is a Telemundo affiliate. On April 20, 2007, Clear Channel Communications entered into an agreement to sell its entire television stations group to Newport Television, a broadcasting holding company established by the private equity firm Providence Equity Partners. This deal closed on March 14, 2008. However, due to Providence Equity Partners' partial ownership stake in the Spanish-language network Univision, the owner of MyNetworkTV affiliate KUVI-TV, KKEY-LP was sold along with KGET-TV and five other stations to High Plains Broadcasting. However, due to KKEY's low-power status, it was excluded along with KTVX from the deal, which was finalized on September 15, 2008. Newport Television continued to operate KGET through a shared services agreement. The analog signal went off the air on July 31, 2009, and for a year KKEY only existed as a subchannel of KGET and was even rebranded "Telemundo 17.3".
